This is Yash Matange signing off. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda Basketball for the latest from all the basketball action at the 2018 Asian Games.
...
This essentially makes India's next and final group game with hosts Indonesia a must-win! 

Indonesia are most likely to lose to Chinese Taipei in the meantime, which means, that game would be a knockout game before the Quarterfinals. That game is scheduled to play on the 23rd of August - Thursday at 4 PM IST!
...
Absolutely horrendous back-to-back games for India. 

They lost by 23 to Chinese Taipei and now 50 to Korea. That last 3 at the buzzer must have been like adding insult to injury. The Indians margins of defeat are getting bigger by the game - 17, 23 and 50. Turnovers were India's undoing yet again - 31 in this game while Korea recorded only 6. 
...
FINAL WHISTLE! India 54-104 Korea
...
2:00 minutes left in Q4, India 49-93 Korea
...
2:00 minutes to go and India call a TIMEOUT! 

They are down by 44 right now and all of the remaining time is garbage time. In fact, that's been the case all through the fourth quarter.
...
4:00 minutes left in Q4, India 46-85 Korea
...
Even with a lead of around 40, Koreans responding to each bucket that the Indians make. 

Score: 85-46 
...
And Korea calls a TIMEOUT with 07:43 left in the game. 
...
Shireen Limaye trying to be agressive just shooting 3s in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter. 

So far, she's 1-of-3.
...
End of Q3, India 39-74 Korea
...
If there was any doubt about the outcome, the Koreans are stamping their authority on this one. 

A 4-2 run over the last 2 minute to end the third quarter. 
...
Rajapriyadarshini gets one to fall from close to the basket. 

Yet again, Korea respond quickly and reply with a bucket of their own. Score: 70-37!
...
India call a TIMEOUT with 03:19 left in the third quarter. 

They trail by 33 right now. They have more or less stayed along with Korea in the third quarter so far [13-19] but they were already trailing by 27 and that hasn't helped them. 
...
Madhu Kumari gets fouled on a 3-point attempt. She makes all 3 free-throws and brings the lead down to 29. 
...
 5:02 left in Q3, India 32-64 Korea
...
Madhu Kumari gets a 3-pointer to fall but as I mentioned earlier, it's all inconsequential here. 

Lead is 32 with 5:02 left in the third quarter.
...
India's first field goal of the quarter comes with 06:18 left. The 4 previous points in the period were free throws. 
...
Make that 36! 

In another minute of playing time, India fail to score while the Koreans score 4!
...
Yet again, 5 quick points within a minute for Korea. 

Their lead is now 32!
...
RELENTLESS! 

Just 14 seconds into the second half, Korea open their account and extend the lead to 29!
...
The shooting percentages are also world's apart. 

India has made only 7 of 22 on field goals while Korea has made their shots at a clip of 61%.
...
And as expected, Korea has 13 steals to India's tally of 3. 
...
They have 15 turnovers, just 5 less than their tally in the opening game against Kazakhstan. They had 23 against Chinese Taipei. 

To make matters worse, Korea recorded just 3 turnovers.
...
It was always going to be difficult for India against the highly ranked Korean squad! 

And the game in the first half showed just that. Once again, just far too many turnovers for India.
...
HALFTIME! India 22-49 Korea
...
Leeseul Kang AGAIN!

She's scored 8 points in the last 2 minutes and that's the HALFTIME whistle!
...
Jeena Skaria makes a layup but everything looks inconsequential right now unless India gets any stops.


...
Another 3 falls for Leeseul Kang! 
...
Anjana PG gets a layup to go but Korea respond quickly with 2 buckets in under a minute. 

India 20-44 Korea.
...
Leeseul Kang gets her first bucket of the game to fall - a 3!

Lead is now 22!
...
Lead is now 19! 

Korea sloppy but still dominating the game. 
...
Korea's Jang Mi Gyong gets fouled and makes 1-of-2 from the FT line. 

Lead for Korea is now 34-18 with 4:34 to go in the second quarter. 
...
06:04 minutes left in Q2, India 18-33 Korea
...
India call for a TIMEOUT, their second of the game as the Koreans have applied the pressure once again. 

In the matter of a minute, they have scored 5 quick points at a time when India needs to get some stops. 
...
Jihyun Park scores now for Korea. Indians, quick to respond, score as well via Anjana PG
...
08:00 minutes left in Q2, India 14-26 Korea
...
But just like any of India's previous baskets, Korea respond well! 

In the span of a minute, they score twice and force a turnover by the Indians. Score: 26-14
...
18 seconds into the second quarter, India gets one to fall via their captain Jeena Skaria.
...
End of Q1, India 12-22 Korea
...
Park Hyejin misses the final shot of the quarter - a 3! 

The score stands at 12-22.
...
Some interesting stuff here! 

With 8 seconds left, Madhu Kumari gets fouled and makes both FT's, prompting the Koreans to call a TIMEOUT and design the final play of the period. 
...
Park Hyejin scores again! 

The lead is back to 12 for Korea. 
...
India's back-up center Stephy Nixon gets fouled in the final minutes of the quarter. 

But again, she only makes 1-of-2. India now trail by 10 [10-20]
...
India calls a TIMEOUT with 1:25 left in the first quarter. 

They already trail by 11 as Koreans scored 3 points in the last minute while allowing none.

...
Madhu Kumari gets one to fall and the lead is back to 8 [9-17]. 
...
India cut into the lead again with one free throw from Rajapriyadarshini.

But yet again, Korea responds almost immediately. This time, with a 3 from Park Hyejin
...
3:48 minutes left in Q1, India 6-12 Korea
...
An entire minute of both teams missing shots and turning the ball multiple times!
