    Default [2nd Round] Group L: FRA-AUS-LTU-DOM

    Australia came out of the group of death unschathed, and their win set up what could be a great France vs Lithuania matchup. Dominican Republic is the surprise here, but I think this is as far as they go.

    Well, if I tried to find some advantages for Lithuania against France those would be such invisible things as playing a tougher first group and especially a match against Australia. Then maybe the do-or-die type of game which would not be the case for France. Maybe it's just the last 3 games against Australia, but somehow i have a bigger fear of them than France.

    Anyway, if the final results of this group were following:

    LTU beating both FRA and DOM; Lithuania would be 4-1 if the wins carry over to the next round or 2-1 if only the wins against new group counts.
    FRA beating AUS and losing to LTU; France would be 4-1 or 2-1
    AUS beating DOM Republic and losing to FRA; Australia would be 4-1 or 2-1

    So basically three teams of the same result. How would the places be determined? Comparing the best +/- points ratio between these three teams, right?

    France is the most talented team here. With Gobert in the middle, defense will get the job done for them.

    France 5-0
    Australia 4-1
    Lithuania 3-2
    DR 2-3

    Okay, so in this post i'm writing mainly from Lithuania's perspective.

    If the teams come up to a situation where FRA-LTU-AUS all attain a 4-1 result (LTU beats both, FRA beats AUS, AUS beats DOM):

    The thing that Lithuania needs to do to be 100% in Quarter Finals is to beat France by at least +5 points. (Not to mention the fact that LTU needs (and should) beat Dominican Republic).

    If LTU beats France by at least +5, either AUS or FRA drops out.

    In such a scenario, FRA would go further if they beat AUS by at least +6. Otherwise AUS goes further.

    A possible scenario is LTU beats FRA +5. FRA beats AUS +5. Then the +/- results between FRA-AUS-LTU would be equal for all teams (0). I wonder, how that case would be determined. Probably by points scored between these three teams.

    The most probable place for LTU would be 2nd either behind FRA or AUS. There is a possibility to be 1st, if LTU beats FRA by at least 6 points or more and FRA beats AUS by at least 5 points or above but not more than LTU + against FRA.


    I know i know, so many hypothetical scenarios, but hey what can you do when you can't wait for the saturday's games and have a dream of going through still alive..

    French defense is amazing, there is no way to score inside. Batum and Gobert are so focused not leaving anything to anyone.

    With JV p'n'r defence we stand no chance. Also France is so much better ready physically and mentally. Lithuania limping mentally after the game against Aussies.

    The French are 5/10 from three point range. Lithuania is 2/7. Lithuania is being killed from beyond the arc again.

    Rudy Gobert is winning the rebounding battle against Lithuania's bigs. Jonas Valančiūnas and Domantas Sabonis either need to find some energy reserves or Coach Adomaitis needs to make some kind of adjustments for the second half. Otherwise....

    Exclamation

    The Lithuanian players just can't make any shots. It's exasperating.
