The GIFs you're about to see below are taken from the last few moments of the historical and highly-emotional semifinals game between Gilas Pilipinas and South Korea last Saturday, August 10. These are the plays that gave us the most jitters; the last few possessions that put the chills down our spines; the baskets that pop up in our minds like a photographic memory. Kabayan, these were the most significant #puso moments during that fateful night. Scroll down to see 'em!

1. The one where Japeth Aguilar soars real high for a thunderous jam to seal off the third quarter with a bang, giving us a much-needed momentum and peace of mind coming into the closing period

2.
The one where Jimmy Alapag, much to everyone's shock, unceremoniously shoots the ball from the arc. It was an enormously risky shot, but Jimmy made it, and we've never felt so relieved with barely a minute left in the game.

3. The one where Marc Pingris musters all that's left in his tank to claim the dagger put-back that ultimately sealed the deal for Gilas Pilipinas. Ping became synonymous with puso that night.

4. This particular scene makes our eyes all watery until now. With the game seconds away from closing down and our entry to the FIBA World Championship in Spain very much assured, a usually reserved Chot Reyes breaks down in tears, highly amazed at the feat they just achieved.
