MANILA, Philippines – Gilas Pilipinas suffered a heartbreaking 73-75 loss to newcomers Palestine in their first game of the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship on Wednesday in Changsha, China.

Naturalized player Andray Blatche scored 21 points to go along with 12 rebounds, but Gilas surrendered a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter to eventually squander a double-digit advantage.

Gilas will try to earn their first win tomorrow when they take on Hong Kong.
