It’s time for David to finally meet Goliath.

After getting blown out by the Italians in the opener of the 2019 FIBA World Cup tournament in Foshan, China, Gilas Pilipinas will look to put up a much better performance this time around against the number two ranked team in the world Serbia tonight at 7pm (Philippine time) at the Foshan International Sports & Cultural Arena.
