    Italy with Fontecchio and without him is 2 tottaly diffrent teams. Italy without Fontecchio would have less chance than Puerturico

    Looking simply on shown results 2021-2023 Italy shown the best results from those 3 NTs and dont think its accident when we take 3 diffrent recent tournaments.


    Puerturico is unpredictable emotional team that will play at home.


    Puerturico can beat LTU/Italy in one game when things will go their way,but can they beat LTU and Italy in back to back 2 games unlikely
    I agree... but the % are more likely LIT 60% Italy 25% and Puertorico 15%.

      However, fully or nearly fully packed Lithuania is a favorite.
      Gallinari in or out is not a big deal since he's almost an ex-player... totally lost his mobility. Can help on offense for 10-15 minutes but he's no more a game-changer...

      We need Fontecchio in the lineup, of course. Spagnolo will be out for injury as well as Procida while Mannion and Pajola should be in and will be very important.

      Also Polonara is showing to be back with more consistent games and will be important off the bench.

        It's better Eubanks than NOTHING... don't u agree?

        But the latest good news is: Darius Thompson finally got the italian passport so maybe could play for our NT (even in a position covered by Spissu, Mannion and Pajola)... can provide some difense and athleticism to our backcourt.

          You underestimating your team. Italy chances beating Lithuania in 2024 is bigger than Italy chances were to beat Serbia in 2021 thats for sure.

          Italy have better shooting team and that skill alone is seriuos factor in 2020s one game scenerio


          For LTU NT news Valanciunas come back home and said in interview that his chances playing in qualification is * interesting *....and that it doesnt depend from his wishes.

          He added he wants play but he is free agent and nba free agency starts from July 1st at that time semifinal/final games in qualiifcation will be played. Insurance for nba player without contract is very problematic according to him.

          So right now looks Lithuania wont have Valanciunas for qualification tournament

            You're overestimating our 3p%... it's very unlikely we shoot well if other team can play difense (see our last tournaments).

            So we have the same "problem" since also Fontecchio is free-agent... and Lithuania plays better with Sabonis as center in Euro (and Valanciunas just backup).

              So Simone Fontecchio is officially OUT because of a small surgery (i think he decided with Detroit not to play)... bad news for us.

                    It may be very well that at the end... The only doubt could be Diouf who is back from a serious injury and the Poz idea of having another perimeter player (Bortolani?) instead of a big man... we'll see.

                      Tessitori out again... we can't say coach Pozzecco is his best fan!

                      So we only could have just a pure center (Diouf, also recovering from injury) with Caruso without PT in Milan... so in the end we'll see much minutes from Melli @ 5 spot with Gallinari and Polonara as PFs. Not a great idea against a physical team like Lithuania...
