    Matthew Wright delivered a huge last quarter performance to lift Gilas Pilipinas to a 90-83 victory over Taiwan, its second win in the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asian Qualifiers on Monday at the Araneta Coliseum.

    Gilas defeated Japan, 77-71, last Friday in Tokyo.

    Like the Philippines, Australia has a 2-0 record after beating Taiwan, 104-66, on Friday and Japan, 82-58, on Monday.

    The Taiwanese are still winless after two games.
