Making the most of investing and in each for 2. Abusing a medium distance -directed by the imaginative and prescient of Satoransky and the effectiveness of Vesely- during which solely Giannis didn’t stay sunk. And with super effectiveness (62-50-50, within the preliminary 20′).

They selected with the identical fashion. Shoot -without happening from 50% from the triple- and cheat with blocks. Ace, Bohacik -with two-, Kyzlink and Hruban (all through the assault entrance) fight Giannis’ genius. Like the two+1 that put the Hellenes again in management (61-60, 29′), however which was answered on the buzzer. Struggling was assured till the top.

However Greece might have a greater wardrobe to accompany its star. Or, not less than, that is what it appears on the EuroBasket.

As a result of the Czech Republic saved working, with inner energy and good combos with Satoranski, Bohacik or Balvin current, however Antetokounmpo didn’t wish to know extra about equality.

Throughout the remaining three minutes he put the lace. First, as a freight prepare to win the underside line after which along with his first triple after seven failures (86-78). That is Giannis. Neither the one who left the 2019 World Cup crestfallen after falling to his rival from Berlin, nor the one within the first half. The arsenal of assets and chief of a Greece that believes.

The Czech Republic didn’t hand over, however Giannis added one other three-pointer to win the final ticket to the EuroBasket quarterfinals (94-88). On a troublesome day and that remembered others simply as troublesome, however that additionally implies that they’ve realized. Nobody guidelines them out anymore.
