...
AND more free-throws! 

3.8 seconds left on the clock. 2 FT's for India's #7.
...
Just 7 seconds left! 

India is all set to register first win and advance to knockout stage of the tournament.
...
Syria knock down a 3 and now a timeout again? 

Are we forgetting what the score is? 
...
Now timeouts are delaying the inevitable. 15.6 seconds left and India are up by 43 (99-56)
...
A VERY VERY long fourth quarter considering the disparity in the scores. 

Lot of fouls has led to plenty of free-throws, thus time stoppage. 
...
2:14 minutes left in Q4, India 96-50 Syria
...
Last 4 minutes to go, it's no surprise that both teams have their benches on the floor.
...
4:11 minutes left in Q4, India 96-44 Syria

Rajeev Kumar again! 

He sits down after that bucket. He finishes the night with 32 points on 57.1% shooting.

6:37 minutes left in Q4, India 91-41 Syria
...
Rajeev Kumar is stealing the show yet again. He gets fouled on the 3-point attempt.

Far an inconsequential quarter, both teams have started strong in the first 2 minutes. 

India 10-5 Syria. 50-point lead right now for India.
...
Rajeev Kumar has almost played the entire game and his scoring hasn't stopped. 

He now has 28 for the game on 55% shooting from the field. 
...
A 45-point lead heading into the final quarter should be enough for India. 

Similar to yesterday, a rather inconsequential fourth quarter needs to be played out. Only this time, it's in favor of India. 
...
Highest scoring quarter for either team. Scoring splits in Q3: 

India 30-14 Syria
...
End of Q3, India 79-34 Syria
...
Rajeev Kumar scores again. 

AND AGAIN! 5 points in a hurry from the #10. India now lead by 45 behind 26 from Rajeev.

Some high pressure defense by India now. They get the ball back but can't extend the 32-point lead.

Rajeev Kumar to the FT line and he makes 1-of-2.

A much closer quarter than the earlier two. This one stands at 10-8 through the 5:30 minutes of Q3.

A fancy post move by Harshwardhan, extends India's lead to 31 (59-28)
...
Abhishek Sharma makes that 8 points for the quarter!

It's 57-28 now. 
...
Syria get a 3 to drop, this one from the corner. It's now 26-point game! 

Really sloppy stuff from India. Not the defense but their offense. They have only scored 6 points in 4:30 minutes this quarter.
...
More free-throws for India as #8 Abhishek Sharma gets fouled. 

He makes 1-of-2.
...
Syria's #5 makes both FT's to cut the lead back to 28.

Beautiful pick-and-roll execution from Rajeev Kumar and Harshwardhan.

India exhibiting some excellent zone defense once again.

...
It's 50-23 right now.

They have started the half without Princepal Singh and #77 Arivind Kumar.
...
The second half is underway! 

India to start the proceedings. 
...
Both teams back on the floor from the locker rooms. 

India seems to have this game in the hand. Will Syria spring up an unexpected surprise or are India just playing the clock to advance to the next round? 
...
HALFTIME!  India 49-20 Syria
...
Not a great half from India. They played better against Korea yesterday but it doesn't matter when you allow only 7 points in the second quarter. 

Here are the quarter splits from the first half. 

Q1: India 25-13 Syria
Q2: India 24-7
...
Beg your pardon, it's a 28-point lead with 34.8 seconds to go. 
...
Harshwardhan to the line now. He makes 1-of-2 pushing India's lead to 27!
...
As we say that, Syria score 3 points in less than 10 seconds.
