Serbia v Italy - Wednesday at 15:15

Italy's first game in their return to the EuroBasket is a huge one.

The opponents in the opening clash of Group B in Siauliai are Serbia.

The FIBA World Rankings have Italy seventh and Serbia eighth.

Results the past three years show that Serbia have been a far superior team.

Serbia qualified for EuroBasket 2009 (and Italy did not) and went on an unexpected run to the Final.

They left Poland with a silver medal and followed that up with a fourth-place finish at the 2010 World Championship in Turkey.

Italy, meanwhile, haven't played in a big event since EuroBasket 2007.

Serbia will be without forward Novica Velickovic, who is out of the EuroBasket because of muscular injury, but Nemanja Bjelica (hand) and Marko Keselj (cheekbone) passed late fitness tests and will play.

The Serbia squad oozes with talent.

Milos Teodosic is one of the best playmakers in Europe, Dusko Savanovic is a top forward and Nenad Krstic and Kosta Perovic are solid centers.

Other weapons include playmaker Stefan Markovic, power forward Milan Macvan, shooting guards Aleksandar Rasic and Milenko Tepic, defensive juggernaut Ivan Paunic and 2.22m center Boban Marjanovic.

Italy changed coaches after EuroBasket 2009 qualifying disappointment, handing the reins to Montepaschi Siena's successful boss Simone Pianigiani.

They played well in EuroBasket 2011 qualifying and are now even stronger as Danilo Gallinari, unavailable the last four summers due to injuries, is in the team.

His fellow NBA players Andrea Bargnani and Marco Belinelli are two reasons why Italy believe they can progress from a very difficult Group B.

Head to Head: Serbia beat Italy twice in their EuroBasket 2009 qualifying campaign, 78-64, in Cagliari and 72-52 in Belgrade. However, Bargnani, Belinelli and Gallinari did not play for the Azzurri.

Last Time Out: Italy defeated Greece, 82-81, in the Acropolis Tournament and Serbia fell, 80-77, to France at the London Invitational Tournament.

Key Match-Up: Bargnani v Serbia centers Krstic, Perovic and Marjanovic - Bargnani's ability to step outside and hit shots from long range can cause problems for centers more accustomed to defending in the low post, but the Italian will also have to prove he can hold his own defensively.

Key Stat: Serbia were very efficient with their offense at the 2010 World Championship, shooting 49.6% from the floor and averaging 88.9 points. Both numbers were second only to gold-medal winners Team USA. Their average of 17.6 assists was third best in the competition.

X-Factor: The biggest question heading into the EuroBasket for Italy is how their playmakers will perform. Combo guard Daniel Hackett is coming off a terrific campaign with his hometown club, Scavolini Pesaro, and has the opportunity to be a big contributor.

Sounding Off: "I once played against Teodosic in the Semi-Finals of the Under-20s. It was a battle then, they won and then won the gold medal. Hopefully this time, it will be different," says Italy guard Hackett.

any links to watch that game ?

I'm pumped. Got lots of money in play today. Cash me in Italy! Forza!

I really fear Teodosic and Krstic's pick'n'roll, especially considering Bargnani's defensive prowess (...)

Uh, Cusin is starting at the 5. Bargs will come off the bench

Love that Hackett is starting. His physicality and quick first step will be hard for Teodosic to contain.

Jasi 08-31-2011 08:23 AM

Re: Group B (Serbia Italy France Latvia Germany Israel)
 
Yes. He should just stick his body on Teodosic and never leave him :D

Uh, I say it now before everything will pan out: I hate Belinelli.
He is so irritating when he plays for Italy. Most of the times he dribbles for 10 seconds and then shoots a horrible shot. Hate him.

Italy will win this game comfortably - they are more talented and physical team than serbs. Looks like Gallinari will be a leader of this italian NT in this tournament:bowdown:

That's how it should be.
Too bad that whne Belinelli and Bargnani are on the court together, they tend to do all by themselves.
I don't know why Pianigiani lets Belinelli bring the ball up, he's a terrible playmaker.

Why is Mordente getting non garbage time minutes?

This is the Italy I don't like to see...too many isos and Maestranzi getting PT....start moving the ball around more!

madmax 08-31-2011 08:51 AM

Re: Group B (Serbia Italy France Latvia Germany Israel)
 
Bellineri is a cancer to this italian team - he takes too many dumb long range shots and misses most of them anyway. Pianigiani should bench the ballhog and teach him a lesson sooner rather than later:rant

Our bench + Bargs&Beli 2 for 12... and we lose all games like this.

Italy is done. Awful stuff. :lol

Italy showed flashes of great play and then some prolonged periods of stagnant ball movement and chucking contested Js. They better hope Germany and France both beat Serbia now to have any chance at qualifying.

Our problems are three:

1) The bench is just not good enough at this level
2) Belinelli is an idiot
3) We defend 50% of the time

We can't change the 1st.
But Pianigiani should at least try and make Belinelli play differently, he's harmful this way. And we can improve our defense.

Bargnani sleeps most of the time but when he wakes up he shows his offensive talent.

Gallinari and Hackett the only good points today.
