Updated: 08 April 2018 18:02 IST - Published: 08 April 2018 15:03 IST
...
India have gone on 0-3 in the group stage, similar to the Indian Women.
...
It's a pity how one quarter ruined everything for India. The disastrous third quarter just lost the plot otherwise India was very competitive against a team that was unbeaten in the group stages before this game. 
...
THE FINAL WHISTLE BLOWS!
...
Scotland's huge lead down to 14. Can India make a spirited comeback? Can they carry this fourth quarter momentum?
...
Some spirited scoring by India, so far they've outscored Scotland 15-9
...
A couple of minutes into the fourth quarter, India and Scotland trading buckets. While that's great, India already trail by 26
...
29-11 advantage for Scotland in the third quarter.
...
One quarter to go and India down by 26. The promising first half is lost with a dreadful third quarter.
...
With just a minute left, they've been outscored 11 to 25.
...
The third quarter turning out to be another terrible offensive quarter for India. 
...
On the other hand, they've given up as many as 16 points.
...
India having one of those quarters once again. Six minutes into the quarter, the team has only scored 4 points. 
...
As we say that Amjyot knocks down a 3, cuts the lead to 17 
...
India beginning to lose the plot. 
...
Now a 20-point lead for Scotland, halfway through the third quarter.

...
Satnam gets India's first points on the board but Scotland strike back. Lead at 18 with six minutes to go in the third quarter.
...
Only two substitutions by India. Fatigue is bound to set in at some point. 
...
Make that 8-0 run for Scotland.
...
Not a good start for the Indians, coming out of the break. They let Scotland go on a 5-0 run for the first 1:30 minutes of the third quarter.
...
India had a better half in GAME 1 against Cameroon but this first half is a huge boost as compared to their game against England. 
...
HALFTME!
...
Satnam Singh makes one bucket. Trims the lead to six but Scotland quickly strike back. 
...
Important for India to close the quarter well. 
...
Within a minute, Scotland go on a 4-0 run. Lead has gone back to 8. 
...
After almost five minutes without a basket, Scotland knock one down to increase their lead back to four points. 
...
Finally some much-needed substitutions for India. 
...
Amjyot makes a bucket now. India have bought the lead down to 2 (35-37)
...
Aravind really keeping India in the game. He's up to 13 points now on 6-of-8 shooting. Not to mention his 5 rebounds as well. 
...
India is fighting hard. With an AND-ONE play by Satnam, they get within six points of Scotland but at some point fatigue is going to set in if all starters continue to play all through the game. 
...
All Indian starters have played all through the first quarter and continuing to start the second quarter as well. Not very sound strategy.
...
India are completely throwing the towel in this one. Still within 7 (26-33) with one quarter in the books. So far Aravind Annadurai has been India's best player with 9 points and 3 rebounds on 80% shooting (4-of-5).
...
Scotland slowly distancing themselves. With 2 minutes left in the quarter, they have been shooting 63% from the field and have taken a 29-23 lead.
...
They've taken a 21-20 lead with 3 minutes to go in the first quarter.
...
Scotland starting to take control by dropping bombs from beyond the arc. 5 of their 8 field goals are three-pointers. 
...
After six minutes in the first quarter, India leads 17-15. 
...
After 5 minutes, they lead 13-12
...
Similar to the previous two games, India has started hot and strong on offense. Can they keep it going? 
...
India's starting line-up: Joginder Singh, Yadwinder Singh, Amjyot Singh, Aravid Annadurai and Satnam Singh.
...
On Day 4 of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Indian Men's Basketball Team will play their third and final group fixture against Scotland. They've lost their previous two games, a winnable one against Cameroon (lost by 9 after leading by 24 at halftime) and another embarrassing blowout against England (lost by 46).

This game is rather insignificant as India has already lost both their games, meanwhile, Scotland have won both their previous games. The Scots have already assured themselves of a berth in the Qualifying Finals, along with the England squad. 

Other than Amritpal Singh, who has announced that he has suffered a knee injury, here’s the available roster for the game: Yadwinder Singh (Captain), Ravi Bhardwaj, Arvind Arumugam, Satnam Singh, Arshpreet Singh Bhullar, Aravind Annadurai, Akilan Pari, J Justin, P Jeevanantham, Joginder Singh, and Amjyot Singh. The team is headed by coach Rajinder Singh.
