Nowitzki and his company is ready to rock in da house. Easy prediction but Iceland will fight good in first game.

Wish Iceland to have a good showing, they're definately not here by some coincidence, they've earned their participation fair and squae, but I think Germany isn't supposed to miss on this one. It would be a major upset if that happened.

If this had been a football match Iceland would have showed up something and maybe they would have beat Germany.
But this is a basketball therefore sorry iceland :)

I wish Nowitzki never retire, he's a delight to watch. Those fade-away jumpers are still there!

Exactly with the Benzing probably gone after the injury they may finish the group 4 th or 5 th. I thought Italy-Turkey game would be a key game but now when we see Germany like this Germany-Turkey game would be key as well.

The winner of Italy - Turkey will probably finish 3rd place which has the best path to the semi final. Group A 2nd team, then probably Lithuania in quarter final.

I hope Turkey can win

What I saw in first half is Schroeder is double edged sword. Let him play his game, I don't see him as a big threat, he tends to derail the things so easily.

It's true. The winner of the ITA-TUR game has a great chance of making it to the semifinals. Unbelievably favorable draw for the 3rd placed finisher.

How did Iceland play?

They base themselves on Stefansson overmuch. There is no single score option in team who can create positions. The guy simply is the everything of Iceland. They also lack a center. In every position, they found themselves undersized. As a positive sign, I liked their mental toughness. Though they would have thought that they already lost the game in the first half, they managed to strike back up to 6 points.
