    Time for some big revenge!
    I found it hard to believe see us losing again to this team the way we are playing atm. This is our biggest chance for an EB.
    I cant imagine how Pau ,in particular, motivated will be!
    He is going to be a beast tomorrow, believe me. And we know that Spain automatically wins if he shows up.

    It's going to take more than everything our team showed on this tournament to beat the fabolous team of Spain.

    I just hope for the fair game and no one mentioning referees afterwards.

    SRBIJA!

    FIBA Europe accepted the Spain's request, so this is the new schedule for the last day of the Eurobasket 2009:

    5th to 6h place final: Croatia - France (18.30 CET)
    7th to 8th place final: Turkey - Russia (14.15 CET)
    1st to 2nd place final: Spain - Serbia (5.15 CET)
    i am quite confused that's Poland local time? (Have to set the alarm for later)

    Spain goes to the game less tired than Serbia. The Spaniards had a relatively easy game against Serbia, with Gasol playing only 21 minutes and some bench players playing more time than usual (Cabezas, Llull), and Serbia had to play a OT to beat Slovenia...
    Who will win the matchup between Krstic and Gasol? And can Ricky and Llull stop Teodosic? Two pertinent questions to the Final...

    it is quite funny how many rivals/enemies are now backing Serbia to win. Greeks, Croatians, Slovenians, Lithuanians, Russians, Turkish, French

    No, no joke. Don't pay attention to Arkadios, game starts at 21:15 Poland time (CET).

    durden_tyler will you believe two users or a user who is famous in these forums for his pranks? Make a smart choice... if you want to see the final.

    It will be a nice game. The two best teams of Europe will be matching for the title and clearly Spain is having the better chemistry and the experience (although they only won in a final once, while most of the young Serbs have won several similar games in the junior level though)

    The constant improvement of the Serbs during the tournament, their depth, their good and flexible rotations, the ability of having several multi-position players and the strong post references are giving Ivkovic and Teodosic a lot to work on in this game. After all, this team is not looking like they would be afraid of anyone in the world (they are Serbs after all), especially since they already beat them last week

    Of course, if Navarro and Rudy start hitting their 3s, things won't be so easy for them, but at least they stand a decent 30% chance to win this game
    Sexuality when one reaches their 30s is either mainstream or sick, but no matter what, it isn't pure

    Good luck with the biggest chance! I believe this team of Serbia will have a chance for gold every year in next 10 years - Eurobasket/WC/Olympics...Btw, no such thing like "automatically winning" except if Serbia NT doesn't show up at 17.15 because they thought game was due at 21.15

    Duda is a great coach and I really admired the disciplined atmosphere he has managed to introduce in a team with a bad record in this field.
    Was really refreshing also to see such a talented young team playing such a beautiful basketball.

    Spain on the other hand is simply of another league.. The defence they can play in the court can choke any European team IMO

    Teodosic has been so far a great leader esp in the semis, but I have to say that Slovenians did not play such a great defence or at least not of the style Spain has been able to play. I am sure that he wont have so much space to hover in the Spanish defence as he had today

    I wish for a good match tomorrow/today big score and hopefully an OT

    I think someone else has to step it up besides Teodosic. I think tomorrow Teodosic will have less than ten points but I hope he has at least 10 assists. I know the defense will be all over him and I know for a fact that he will not have any open three pointers. I just pray that our young playmaker makes the right decisions with the ball like he has been doing this whole tournament.

    I think Perovic has been absolutely brilliant. Every champion needs someone off the bench to come on and be that "extra spark of energy". A player who comes off the bench when the team is down and brings the team back into it single-handily. Perovic has been doing this all tournament long.

    Another player that needs to play good in order for Serbia to win is Krle(Krstic). If he doesn't come to this game ready to shut down the Gasol brothers than we can expect a loss. He's the unofficial leader of this squad due to his experience and he needs to show this tomorrow.

    All in all, I don't expect much from Serbia. I hope they win but I think Spain will go into the 4th with a 20 point lead. They will bring in their subs and Serbia will lose by 10 to make it respectable.

    I pray of course that it's the opposite!

    NAPRED SRBIJO!
