Spain who is the big favourite for winning the Eurobasket has lost easily against Serbia 66-57

Serbia has the youngest team of the Eurobasket, and it seems that a new generation of fantastic players is coming after some years struggling

They have refused to call any NBA player (only Krstic), and right now they have some of the brightest young prospects in Europe. Macvan, Velickovic, Tepic, Tripkovic or Teodosic may be the future of european basketball

Spain was just awful. Pau Gasol ha a pretty poor match, with 9 points and 7 rebounds. But 4/10 FG and 1/8 FT!!!
Navarro 14 points but 3/16 FG!!
Marc Gasol only scored 4 points

Rudy Fernández didnt play due to injury, but he is in the roster and will play further on in the tournament
Calderon is not playing the Eurobasket because he has decided to take a rest and recover

I can understand Navarro going 3/16, people have off shooting nights, and Serbia played good D, but how the hell did Gasol go 1/8 from the line ?

Rubio was completely exposed in this game. He can't play against a set defense. Not even just a little bit.

Most have been free throws in the last 5 minutes , when Spain was to 9- 10 points. In fact Spain could have tied the game with several of those free throws and some field shot more . Pau missed 7 free throws in a row in this game

Don't forget this is Pau's first game back after quite a layoff due to his finger injury. It's bound to of effected him.

Ricky Rubio was also pretty average.

6 points and 3 assists with 2/7 FG

Despite all, I think that Spain should win the tournament easily. I think they have by far the best team

Default Re: Eurobasket , a evening of basket

just came back from the games in Warsaw.

I didn't even know Pops Mensah-Bonsu plays for the UK team.He looked really good vs Slovenia,too bad his teammates aren't all that good.Oh,and Primoz Berec still sucks donkey balls.

Spain was shooting bricks the entire night.Is Rudy really injured?I didn't notice anything wrong with him during the warmup.He was running,dunking with ease etc.Maybe they want to give him some time off?

Serbian D on Gasol was very good tonite.Pau's problems with catching the ball didn't help either.

Krstic owned in this game,had some nice buckets in the post,and i loved that turnaround j on Gasol.Heh one time Pau fell for a pump fake like a rookie.And I think someone needs to tell him it's not the nba and that he shouldn't be complaining to the refs the entire game,especially if he's shooting bad.

Rubio scored 6 points (2 layups and 2xft) but i like his game.He's got nice handles and got to the rim with ease.I agree with people who claim he needs to work on his jumper.He was passing a bit too much,he had like 3 open looks at the basket and he passed to the guy camping at the 3pt line.Well,that's how we play in Europe i guess.I wasn't that much impressed with his D,he looked a bit lost imo.

It's a damn shame for GB that both Deng and Gordon both aren't playing for them. They could cause some teams problems if they were.

Indeed. I hate being a 'what if' kinda fan, but in this case I really would love to see them both playing. Pops Mensah-Bonsu is doing his best, but we simply haven't got very good shooters. Ben Gordon would have filled a huge need if he was playing.

Slovenia was probably our best chance to get a win. We'd beaten them about 3 weeks ago, but their shooting was too good this time.

Looking forward to watching GB get destroyed by Spain later. They'll be mad after losing to Serbia, so we'll probably get eaten alive.

Apart from Pops and that Archibald guy the UK squad looked pretty poor.Still they managed to make it a game after being steamrolled in the first quarter(Slovenia was making all their shots).

Yeah and i don't think Spain is going to have another crap game.They'll probably destroy UK.

Same goes for Poland vs Lithuania.Poland won their opener,but Lithuania lost to Turkey.They miss their backcourt guys but theyre still an excellent team.Poland is prolly going to lose this one.

Should be another fun night anyway.
