Has anybody seen Blatche?
Gilas Pilipinas naturalized player Andray Blatche was a complete liability for Gilas Pilipinas when they take on Italy on Saturday night to open their 2019 Fiba World Cup campaign in an underwhelming note.
Blatche did led the national squad with 15 points, but he also had 9 turnovers and -39 plus/minus stats.
He was completely out of sync from the get go that gave the Italian team a huge boost en route to a 62-108 blowout loss.
The former NBA player was also seen lacking energy on the offensive end, allowing much smaller Italian frontcourt to muscle their way in the paint.
Gilas neophyte CJ Perez was only bright spot for Gilas, finishing with 15 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds.
Gilas will face Serbia on Monday in hopes of giving themselves a fighting chance to enter the next round.
