The game has already started so there's no point in adding the poll. An even game so far. It would be really nice if our northern neighbors got a win today, realistically it's their only chance. Still, they play better in this Eurobasket than most people expected after seeing their roster and preparation games. Blums is hard to stop once again.

I know this game didn't mean much, but it was really exciting. Too bad last Latvian attack was crap. They shot the ball from another half of the floor when there were at least 3 seconds left. I guess it's lack of experience.

Well at least we've got a victory, Latvians look much better than last year in the qualis.
Eliyahu 26pts 10reb. I'm impressed

Nice close game. Pnini with a clutch three , Blu with 2 missed FTs to seal the game, Shivek with random rotation

No one neglected Latvians : they are always a solid team with good shooters. In some other group they might finish with a couple of wins.

The only negative thing about them : they make with a lot of nasty fouls at defense: fouls on the edge of leading to players' injuries. Almost made Moshe Dayan out of Yuval Naimi ;)

Just because Eli Sahar asked for this :D
