SPAIN 84 – GREAT BRITAIN 76
The chemistry of the Spanish Mens National Team seems to be a little OUT OF SYNC. On the court, they don’t seem as fluid and lots of mistakes however they managed to pull off a much needed when. Although not convincing, a win is still a win. Their group is not the easiest and tomorrow they will look to take on Slovenia.It will be an interesting match up because Slovenia beat Serbia today which won yesterday over Spain.
Rudy Fernandez came in during the end of the game to knock down an important 3 pointer to make the game more clear for Spain. Up until that they were only up by 2 points and barely. Plus the help of some, traveling calls on England.
Pau Gasol led all scorers with 27 points
