Spain just escaped overtime when Greece made their final push during the last quarter. A breath of air for Spain who struggled in the groups stages, played on the back of Pau Gasol once again. Gasol led all scorers with 27 points and 9 rebounds while chipping in with three assist. Gasol made a comment after his injury in the last game they he will never give up and has never done so. It showed tonight with this huge win over Greece who was until today undefeated throughout the entire Eurobasket tournament.
