Gilas bags bronze in FIBA Asia

MANILA Gilas Pilipinas leaned on Paul Lee's endgame heroic to beat China, 80-79, on Saturday night to finish third in the 5th FIBA Asia Cup in Wuhan, China.

Lee drilled in three charities with no time left after he faked off two defenders from the big arc to the frustration of China's home crowd.

It was the best finish for the Filipino dribblers in the tournament, surpassing four place finish in 2010 in Beirut and 2012 in Tokyo.
