Showing its full support to the national team, the PBA will go on a two-week break to give way to Gilas Pilipinas’ preparations in its two crucial remaining games in the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers.

The PBA Philippine Cup last playdate will be on February 13 at Mall of Asia Arena. It will resume on February 27 at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Gilas can’t afford to lose any of its final matches after going 1-3 in its last four games.

Gilas will Qatar on Doha on February 21. Three days later, the national squad will travel to Astana to face Kazakhstan.

Gilas will begin holding practices daily on February 14.
