Both teams were neck-and-neck for most of the second half but China come away with the win in their tournament opener. They are now most likely to finish at the top of Group D and face hosts Indonesia in the Quarterfinals. On the other hand, Philippines will most likely play favorites Unified Korea in the QF's. 

10:57 (GMT)21 AUG 2018

A valiant effort by Jordan Clarkson. It might be unfair to point on him but it was his late-game foul that cost Philippines that game. 

He finished with 28 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals on 10-of-25 shooting but it was his NBA counterpart Qi Zhao, from China, that had the best box score from the game - 25 points, 12 rebounds, 7 blocks and 1 steal on 6-of-11 shooting and 4-of-7 from distance! 

10:54 (GMT)21 AUG 2018

That final foul on Jordan Clarkson proved to be the nail in the coffin for Philippines. 

Really bad play that one. The game could have gone to overtime, instead China are most likely to become table-toppers in Group D!
