The Philippines host the Akatsuki Five at the MOA Arena and the national team can regain its footing following a beating at the hands of Australia in Melbourne.
At 2-1, Gilas can keep in step with the Boomers in Group B with a win. A victory also gets the Philippines closer to the second round of these Qualifiers.
Last November, Gilas already beat Japan in Tokyo, 77-71. Tip off for this rematch will be at 7:30 p.m. live from Pasay.
