    JORDAN Clarkson is eager to get back in action and deliver for the Philippines after a tough road loss in the Fiba Basketball World Cup Asian qualifiers.

    The former top Sixth Man in the NBA is hoping the Philippines can avoid wasting chances like it did in Beirut, where the Filipinos committed 21 turnovers in an 81-85 loss to Lebanon.

    "It's hard to win when you have 20-plus turnovers in a game like this especially with the home crowd behind them," he lamented.

    Clarkson is confident ahead of the game against Saudi Arabia on Monday at MOA Arena, saying Gilas did pretty well against Lebanon.

    "I think we did a good job of competing. Coach prepared us really well, trying to scout this team now. We had a great game plan coming in," he said.

    "We just got to take it on the head and get back to the drawing board," said the 30-year old Fil-American.
