Then Ibaka grabbed a ball and practically treading the line of 3, threw and scoring. It was 27-21. It seemed that this action, somewhat rare for the characteristics of the Congolese, would mean a point of inflection in the attack Spanish, because although Lithuanians remained out easily, the Spaniards were able to score on two consecutive occasions. But that was not the screenplay of this match. Spain again began to wander in their shots, achieving a few certainly loose shooting percentages. Scariolo combination failures advocating the fast counterattacks of the Lithuanians. When the dnsa of Spain could rearm in time to halt the Lithuanian admitted, the locals scored with unusual ease from the line of 6.75.
The problem of Spain not only settled in their percentages of success. Did you notice a complete lack of fluency in the direction of play. The holder base, Jose Calderon, enjoyed a few minutes. Player that more minutes acted as basis in the first half, was the Majorcan Sergio Llull, which he felt disoriented as a conduit for game. The constant changes of position that is coming forcing Real Madrid, both in his club selection, could potentially cause that this doesn’t end find your ideal site. The Lithuanians would be able to rest with a few figures which, when extrapolated, would lead them to 100 points at the end of the regular 40 minutes.
The scoreboard reflected a resounding 50-33. Once again, to Spain are choked Lithuania. Surely that Scariolo players resurrected old ghosts. A year ago, Spain, unaccustomed to losing, fell against Lithuania in an official match in the group stage of the last World Cup. Spain wanted to apply makeup after the first five minutes of the third quarter, noted some improvement in Spain, and outlined distances, as I could see and the luminous, 59-44. The improvement of Spain was remarkable. The little scoring success of the Scariolo varied. Up to pivots, as did Marc Gasol, began to convert the exterior shots. The rest was with 65-58. In the last quarter, Spain came up on the scoreboard to Lithuania, but it cost him to break the barrier of the five points of difference. Despite this, the Spanish combined recovered one of the qualities that has defined his game since long time, speed in attack, where a renovated Llull stepped accelerator. Finally, the best thing was the image displayed by the Scariolo in the last quarter. While, both the outcome final, 88-76, as the dnsiva weakness, remain on the debit side of Spain.

Beyond of the party itself, has surprised the few minutes that Scariolo has granted to the three players that are supposedly contesting a place in the list of the 12 registered for the Eurobasket. Perhaps Scariolo had already taken the decision before the start of the meeting.
