Gilas Pilipinas lost twice in a row against Jordan's Team A and crashed out of title contention in the 10th King Adbullah Cup.
After losing to Jordan 72-84 on Saturday, the nationals bowed again to the same team early Sunday morning 84-74 at the Prince Hamza Sport Hall in Amman.
Ange Kouame paced Gilas with 20 points, while Jordan Heading tallied nine points on three triples.
After falling behind by double-digit deficit, the nationals rallied and fought to within 72-68.
But Jordan, led by Sami Bzai and Cameron Forte, quelled the uprising to repeat over the Filipinos.
Gilas will next face Tunisia for the battle for third place.
