What to expect here?
A thoroughly professional performance from Nikola Jokic and Co. They should dominate right from the off, inside or outside the paint.
Momentum is a big thing in sport, or in any phase of life. Head coach Aleksandar Đorđević won't go easy on his players despite the profile of the opponent. For, the road to the glory will have to be taken through some of the giants of this sport, and nothing gives a team more confidence in achieving big things than the victories.
In all fairness, the Philippines were never in the race for the 2nd spot in Group D, and no team for the top spot, because Serbia are here.
The best way forward for this nation in this sport is to give the fight to the esteemed opponents and learn the vital lessons.

The Denver Nuggets' superstar Center will be looking to avenge his team's defeats to United States of America in the last two major tournaments.
Serbia's big man will be hard to get over for whoever from Angola comes against him.
