Iran stay perfect to take down Jordan and advance to Quarter-Finals

BEIRUT (FIBA Asia Cup 2017) - Iran prevailed 83-71 in the battle of the two undefeated teams in Group A.

Another near triple-double from Hamed Hadadi (17 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists), and Behnam Yakhchali's 20-point, 10-rebound double-double proved to be enough for Iran, who finish atop of Group A at 3-0.

Mah'd Abdeen had 22 points and 9 assists to lead Jordan in the loss.
