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.
