    Kazakhstan rips Thais to justify darkhorse tag

    Aug 1, 2013

    KAZAKHSTAN cruised to an 81-67 win over Thailand in the nightcap of a long day in the 27th Fiba-Asia Men's Championship at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    The Thais made it a close game in the first half until the Kazakhs pulled away for good in the third period to bolster their reputation as one of the darkhorses in the biennial tournament.

    The Kazakhs outscored the Thais during that stretch, 27-14, to take a 22-point lead with them (69-47) going to the payoff period.

    Kazakhstan joined Bahrain in the win column of Group D.

    The scores:

    Kazakhstan (81) - Ponomarev 21, Jonson 15, Murzagaliyev 13, Klimov 12, Yargaliyev 7, Lapchenko 6, Dvirnyy 4, Zhigulin 3, Sultanov 0, Bazhkin 0.

    Thailand (67) - Apiromvilaichai Darupong 16, Lertlaokul 9, Apiromvilaichai Darongpan 9, Klaewnarong 8, Tongsri 6, Klahan 6, Kongkum 6, Suttisin 3, Dasom 2, Ghogar 2, Lertmalaiporn 0, Samerjai 0.

    Quarterscores: 26-15; 42-33; 69-47; 81-67
