    Default Eurobasket 2022 - Round of 16

    with half of the match-ups established, I think we can start the elimination round discussion.

    Sep 10th
    - Turkey - France
    - Slovenia - Belgium
    - Germany - Montenegro
    - Spain - Lithuania

    Sep 11th
    - Ukraine - Poland
    - Finland - Croatia
    - Serbia - Italy
    - Greece - Czech Republic

    Slovenia and Germany will have easy double digit wins.
    Lithuania is better than Spain.
    I can see France being bounced by Turkey but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    I would be very surprised if all 4 teams from group B would not qualify for QF and I also believe that Lithuania will bounce back, win against Spain and then also win in QF and play in semis.

    I'd say it is very likely that all teams from group A will be eliminated.

    Serbia, if they win, will most likely play Italy, France, Slovenia. Maybe they should go to other side of the draw?

    ESP-LTU is de facto quarterfinal. FRA and SRB, two of the top four teams, are the most unlucky because they will face each other at the quarterfinal stage.

    I would make a case if Larkin played since his passing makes their bigs more efficient, now the chance is even smaller.

    Is Larkin out of the tournament?

    Serbia will not calculate. And even if Poland win tonight, other side of draw is not much easier.

    Biggest problem for Serbia is short bench, especially after nedović injury. Pešić is in an relationship with Jagodić-Kuridza, probably worst player in 1/8 finals.

    Turkey is the only team that could have profited from injury

    For instance if Melih broke leg, or if Tuncer stretched a muscle

    Btw do anybody remember if those two ballerinas ever get injured? With their soft pussy style I realy don't see any possibility for that

    I know they won't. I would still say that Lithuania/Spain and then Greece are better matchups for Serbia than France in 1/4 and Slovenia in 1/2.

    France yet to beat Turkey in Berlin(probably like homecourt for Turkey)

    We are playing street basketball without concept, we are not team, we have clowns in the team etc etc, France is better team, but they will have to prove that in one game

    Maybe at the end Serbia will have easy opponent in qf

    First, I have watched only 1 Turkish game, so I might be wrong. Sengun was probably the best or 1 of the best Turkish players in the group. He will play against totally different level of Cs against France. Cedi likes to drive, again totally different rim protection by France. Turkey will need to play far the best game till now to even be close imho. But nothing is impossible of course. Bookies have you at 3.5, which is around 30% probability. Looks about right.

    I have to say that FIBA has to do a better job in protecting the players. I mean all the players, but especially the top players who can't be stopped on the court. There are so many problems in FIBA basketball, like the FIBA vs Uleb conflict and different rules between NBA and FIBA. Regardless of that we seem to have a great product in this Eurobasket. Top players have the willingsness to play in the trounament. And NBA teams , although the dislike it, are understanding enough to allow it. As long as their players are protected.

    I don't give even 30%, considering all problems we have, just saying if lots of Turkish fans could make some impact in one crazy game anything could happen.

    TBH I even don't want that win because the next game would be humiliation against Serbia
