It will mark the first time Gilas Pilipinas play in a semis of the Asian Games since 2002.

China on the other hand defeated South Korea, 84-70 in their quarterfinals match. They also have a dominant wins, sweeping Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, and Mongolia in the group stage.

The Philippines last reached the finals of Asian Games in 1990.

A win against China tonight will secure for the country's first Asian Games medal in men's basketball since bagging bronze in 1998.
