Before resuming pool play Tuesday [Wednesday morning, PHL time], Kobe Paras competed in the slam dunk contest of the 2017 FIBA 3x3 World Cup in Nantes, France.

Romania is seeded seventh, while the Philippines is ranked 18th.

Down 12-13, Paras, son of former PBA rookie-MVP Benjie Paras, ignited the comeback with a layup before Ravena completed an and-one play and added a two-pointer (a shot from the arc) for a 17-13 lead with 1:19 left.
