    There is one medal left. Can Croatia break their curse and get it? or will Spain go home with a consolation prize?

    I really doubt... They decided to leave the podium in Athens and it is not that easy to come back... They will probably wait another 18 years...

    Well I'll be cheering for Croatia on Sunday even though the Italian restaurant tablecloths they're using as uniforms are a bit hard on the eyes.

    Well now that the Croatians have seen four other teams beat Spain like a drum, maybe they'll have the self-confidence to come out and play basketball against the Spanish this time.

    But anyway, I think CRO has better chances to win this game. After last nights 3/20 for 3pts it cannot be worst then that this time, Bogdanovic will start hitting 3s and hopefully CRO will win.

    I hate both of them, but Spain has a better chance of winning.

    Well they showed that they can win against Crotia, but again maybe that match was so one-sided because Croatia came out scared and resigned. This could be a much different story. Still, because of their match outcome I'd say spain has the edge. Hope Croatia proves me wrong.

    it all depends on first quarter...if Croatia doesn't let them make a big difference, anything is possible... still, my prediction is another double digits win for Spain... hope to be wrong this time

    i dont like spain basketball politics and i want them all the worst in the future from all players from ex yu who came ver young to spain clubs nobody got his chance, even bojan bogdanović and we all see how great player bojan will be. onl one who got his chance very early was... nikola mirotić! surprise surprise... now 18 year old hezonja in first team of barcelona, no way he'll play anything this season

    about the game, spain has better players no doubt about it, but they showed mental lability losing all tied games, and another thing is question of motivation in game for "only" bronze after all these golds...

    all croatian games for bronze medal:

    1993 EC in Germany

    croatia - greece 99-59 (stojko vranković triple double with 12 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 blocks! )


    1994 WC Canada

    croatia - greece 78-60


    1995 EC Greece

    croatia - greece 73-68

    you were lucky playing against greece all 3 times for bronze.In 90s greece was smart team but not very talented, most of the times they won 1/4 game by some lucky play in the end of the game and than always finishing solid 4th they were 4th in 1993,1994,1995,1997,1998 for me its shows they were just outsmarting similair level team in 1/4 game but when they face elite of those tournaments basically had no wins

    I don't care who wins, just hoping Croatia will make a game out of it. If it's either a blowout or a struggle, I'll turn off the TV and grab a book.
