    Bulgaria vs Turkey is a game I have been waiting for.

    Hopefully Turkey starts getting into rhythm.

    I haven't seen the future matchups to know if we should be aiming for/avoiding a specific spot in the group but since we won over Croatia I would like to see our injured players get some minutes (especially Papagiannis that didn't participate at all in preparation games) to increase the cohesion of the team for the knockout stage.

    If you win today, first place is almost guaranteed, so I doubt very much we will see much experimenting.

    If all favourites win their group, you can't meet them before semis. If somehow Serbia finished 2nd and you 3rd, you play in 1/8 with them. First place for sure brings something.

    Nurkic beasting all over the Germans. Just too dominant. Bosnians as team surprisingly look better than expected.
    Sports is not only considered as a superiority of physical capability. Perception, intelligence and morality assist it as well. The strong with less intelligence and comprehension can not cope with the less strong but with sufficient intelligence and comprehension. I like the sportsman who is intelligent, agile as well as morally upright.

    Too many harsh ups and downs with Bosnia within the game.

    However Greece or Italy would still have a difficult quarter final supposing they beat their group D opposition, since they will be meeting with group B teams.

    God our defende is so soft(!), it seems we are only willing to play hard when we fall behind by 15... Bulgarians shooting as if it’s a practice match.

    Which Turkish fans? I don't know any sane bball follower who would object to this.

    Anyway. It's not bad defense or soft defense. It is having no fucking clue.

    Turkey is an absolute trash again... against freaking Bulgaria that only has Vezenkov and Dee Bost (who is an okay player but nothing special) and all the rest are scrubs from the Bulgarian league.

    Nobody from the Turkish team tries to play, nobody runs, nobody plays defense. Some soulless pieces of meat running around like headless chicken being lead by Ataman who looks like someone ate his breakfast and doesn't even stand from his chair.

    52 points for this Bulgaria... Turkey is an average team thus far. Spain would probably school them.

    He is lightly injured, he also was during the first match but got injections to participate, now he will be spared, unless things get out of hand.

    After the loss against Poland I did mention there's a huge defensive problem in this team but I do remember a few people who heavily disagreed with that/ignored that fact and said Turkish offense would outscore most teams in the tournament.

    This Stoilov guy looks solid, doesn't he? Against Spain he was very good too, until getting into the foul trouble.

    The only hope for Turkey to pass 8finals against B group teams is to shoot the lights out. If they will be hitting most of their shots they may have a chance, but that's 1 game out of 10 theoretically. All SLO, LTU, FRA, GER are at another level from tactical point and physicality.

    He is a young boy and plays in Estudiantes in second Spanish league. Okay let's say that he is solid... all the rest are freaking scrubs bro.

    You can't claim to be a good team and a big basketball nation etc why losing from freaking Bulgaria. In here 99% of people don't even know that we have a Eurobasket going on.
