DESPITE a painful ankle, Andray Blatche loaded the stat sheets with a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds, and added some highlight plays including this huge block on Joji Takeuchi.

The move looked smooth as he rose for the block, but was a little scary for fans as he tried to make a soft landing after hurting his right ankle earlier.

The Philippines went on to beat Japan, but only just.
