Can Syria win the fourth quarter, an inconsequential one?

...
Nothing tragically wrong done in the first half by Syria. 

They just haven't made enough shots - 42.9% as compared to 50% for the Philippines. That's not too big of a hole.

Aljabi the lone wolf for Syria. He has 14 but only out of 33. 

Can't blame for Syria though. Philippines just a better team, as shown by the FIBA World Men's Rankings.

That's all Syria can do, take it quarter wise and try to win it.
