Matthew Wright's Performance and his Amazing Running Buzzer Beater

Matthew Wright Scored 12 Points Against Japan and he earned most of them from the Stripes


The 26-year-old Filipino-Canadian sharpshooter played more minutes than the best player of the game Jayson Castro at 29 minutes. Matthew Wright was a marked man from the start as he is well known for his exemplary shooting from the outside.

Against Japan, however, Matthew Wright had to settle getting his points from the free throw line. Matthew scored one 2-pointers and a 3-pointers in the game and the rest was earned with free throws. Matthew could not get himself going from the outside shooting (1/4) but his free throws did not fail him with a perfect 7/7 free throw percentage.

While the Philippines was able to escape a tough Japanese foe with the score of 77-71, it is evident that we need to improve our overall shooting. As a team, Gilas Pilipinas only shot at 38% percent and this is below average. It was our lucky night as Japan shot much poorer with only 34.8% from the field.

Matthew who is one of our main gunners needs to further improve his shooting as he only shot 33%. 

Gilas Pilipinas' next assignment will be Taiwan on November 27. The game will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in the Philippines.

Here is the amazing running jump shot at the buzzer!

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup.
