The Spaniards did not live up to their role as candidates until after the first half ended. In the second quarter, they trailed by as much as 15 points behind the Northern Europeans, who had so far been very accurate, especially from a distance. NBA professional Willie Hernangomez (New Orleans Pelicans) was primarily responsible for his team’s 27-point win. Old star Rudy Fernandez stopped the match with two goals from long distances. In Finland, Lauri Markkanen, who makes his money with the Cleveland Cavaliers and thus in the North American Pro League, once again emerged to bid farewell. He scored 28 points and 11 rebounds.
And Spain now meets Friday, the winner of the crushing match Germany and Greece. The stadium for the eagerly awaited duel was at Berlin’s EuroBasket Arena at 8:30pm.
