China found themselves in an unexpected tight spot going into overtime against Bahrain. However, having Wang Zhelin step up for another huge game of 27 points and 14 rebounds helped their case in getting another win, 80-67, and wrapping up Window 5 undefeated.
Jordan were so good in their revenge win against New Zealand, 92-75, that both Ahmad Al Dwairi and Dar Tucker deserved a mention here. Dwairi was as dominant as ever in the paint with another double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds, while Tucker unloaded a barrage of three-pointers to compile 31 points for the Falcons.
Another big man that shined was Kai Sotto, who also have another strong game to wrap up Window 5. Against Saudi Arabia in a 76-63 win, it was not his biggest scoring output with 11 points, but he scored those points efficiently coupled with 5 monstrous blocks for a personal-high in the Asian Qualifiers of 23 EFF.
Finishing off the list is Jad Khalil who shined as a facilitator for Lebanon on their way to a massive 103-74 win over India. Khalil had 15 points to go with his 9 assists, both numbers being the highest he's recorded in the Asian Qualifiers.
