Iran bated the hosts, they dared them to commit from deep.Seasoned Iran quickly regrouped as back-to-back 3s from Mohammad Jamshidi gave his side a 7-3 lead.Hadadi answered in kind, a silky post move seeing Iran ahead 15-10 .Jamshidi ominously punctuated the quarter with a 3-pointer to afford Iran a comfortable 56-44 buffer and leave Lebanon with a mountain to climb.The unremitting Jamshidi then dunked as Lebanon's rearguard completely capitulated with Iran carving their largest lead at 62-45 .
