    Another good game by João Gomes: 20 points (3/4 behind the arch), 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks.

    Bulgaria 66 ‒ Portugal 72

    Although Kaloyan Ivanov, Dejan Ivanov (both players will not take part in the 2013 EuroBasket qualification campaign) and Cedric Simmons didn’t play, this is still a quality win for Portugal.
    João Gomes lead the team in scoring (17 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists). Mário Fernandes, coming off the bench, contributed with 15 points and 5 assists. José Silva had a perfect-shooting day: 5/5 field-goals (2 three-pointers).

    Portugal's next game is against Germany (27th July).

    João Santos, out for two weeks due to a minor injury, won’t be able to play Portugal’s next three games:

    Germany ‒ Portugal (27th July, 18h30 C.E.T.)
    Israel ‒ Portugal (28th July, 17h00 C.E.T.)
    Austria ‒ Portugal (29th July, 18h30 C.E.T.)

    After 4 friendly matches, João Santos is posting rather mediocre numbers: 7.25 points, 2.75 rebounds (he had however a very good game against Great Britain ‒ 16 points, 6 rebounds).

    Due to João Santosʼ injury, Miguel Queiróz (PF, 2.02, 1991) will return to the Portuguese national team.

    Germany 79 ‒ Portugal 77

    Once more, João Gomes was Portugal’s main attacking threat: 16 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. This time, he was well backed up by «atomic ant» Mário Fernandes (13 points, 6 assists), Jaime Silva (12 points, 3 steals, 4/5 from 3-point range) and Miguel Minhava (11 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists).

    Try the link below for game stats (only Portugal):

    http://www.fpb.pt/fpb_zone/portal/im...2849521268.pdf

    For the German squad I was only able to find out who played and scored:

    Heiko Schaffartzik (PG, 1.83) ˗ 17
    Jan-Hendrik Jagla (PF/C, 2.13) ˗ 12
    Bastian Doreth (PG, 1.82) ˗ 11
    Tibor Pleiß (C, 2.15) ˗ 10
    Robin Benzing (SF, 2.09) ˗ 9
    Karsten Tadda (SG, 1.90) ˗ 6
    Malik Zirbes (C, 2.07) ˗ 4
    Philip Zwiener (SF, 2.01) ˗ 4
    Tim Olbrecht (PF/C, 2.10) ˗ 3
    Philipp Schwethelm (SF, 2.01) ˗ 3.

    Israel 94 ‒ Portugal 100

    An impressive win against Israel. Five players scored in double figures: Miguel Minhava (11), Tomás Barroso (11), Fábio Lima (13), Mário Fernandes (14) and… João Gomes (26).

    Angry Pissed with the Austrians

    Portugal, Israel, Germany and Austria sent their basketball national teams to Oberwart (Burgerland, Austria), a.k.a. «basket limbo», a place where detailed basketball statistics seem to fall into the category of «official secrets of the municipality».

    Edit: Portuguese NT stats can be found here:

    http://www.fpb.pt/fpb_zone/portal/im...2838391168.pdf (Three cheers for the Portuguese Basketball Federation)

    As for the stats of the Israelite team, their location is anybody’s guess.

    Portugal’s friendly matches have been a pleasant surprise: 2 wins against higher-ranked teams (Israel and Bulgaria) and a plethoric João Gomes allow us to foster a slim hope of qualifying for the 2013 EuroBasket. However, the lack of inside scoring is a major concern.

    Portugal 84 ‒ Switzerland 66

    Three wins in 8 games for the Portuguese NT. This time, for a change, Paulo Cunha (SF, 2.00, 1980) led the team: 19 points (6/6 FG, 6/6 FT), 4 rebounds. Excellent game by young PG Tomás Barroso (1.80, 1990): 14 points (4/5 from behind the arch), 5 rebounds.

    Stats for this game (Portugal only) can be found here:

    http://www.fpb.pt/fpb_zone/portal/im...0445051068.pdf

    As far as the Swiss team, I only know who their leading scorers were: David Ramseier (PF/C, 2.03, 1987) scored 16 (with 8 rebounds) and so did Dusan Mladjan (SF, 1.98, 1986).

    Austria 65 ‒ Portugal 54

    The Portuguese NT (3-7) is in Sarajevo where it will face Bosnia-Herzegovina today (August 10th). Yesterday, we were defeated by the Austrians (again!).

    João Gomes: 11 points, 8 rebounds and 6 steals;
    Cláudio Fonseca: 11 points, 6 rebounds;
    Elvis Évora: 8 points, 6 rebounds.

    It was nice to see our big man being more active.

    For the Austrians:

    Jason Dietrick (SG/SF, 1.98, 1980): 14 points;
    Rasid Mahalbasic (PF/C, 2.10, 1990): 11 points;
    Thomas Klepeisz (PG, 1.88 1991): 10 points.

    Bosnia & Herzegovina 91 ‒ Portugal 81

    This was the last of the 11 friendly matches played by Portugal (3-8).

    João Gomes (23 points and 7 rebounds against Bosnia) averaged 16.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 11 games.
    Veteran SG Jaime Silva stepped-up against Bosnia: 14 points.

    For the Bosnians:

    Mirza Teletovic ‒ 33 points
    Nihad Djedovic ‒ 26 points. This young and talented player is having a great preparation campaign with Bosnia and will excel with ALBA Berlin.

    Portugal will start its qualification campaign against Italy (Sassari, 15th August).

    There were15 players involved in the friendly matches:

    João Gomes ‒ 16.7 points (11 games)
    Miguel Minhava ‒ 8.5 (10)
    Mário Fernandes ‒ 8.3 (11)
    João Santos ‒ 7.3 (4)
    Paulo Cunha ‒ 6.0 (10)
    Tomás Barroso ‒ 5.9 (11)
    Cláudio Fonseca ‒ 5.8 (11)
    Jaime Silva ‒ 4.8 (10)
    José Silva ‒ 4.4 (5)
    Fábio Lima ‒ 4.4 (10)
    Elvis Évora ‒ 4.3 (11)
    Jorge Coelho ‒ 3.9 (9)
    Nuno Oliveira ‒ 3.1 (9)
    Miguel Queiróz ‒ 2.0 (1)
    Rui Quintino ‒ 0.5 (4)

    If João Santos recovers from his injury, Mário Palma needs to cut three players: Miguel Queiróz? Rui Quintino? José Silva? Nuno Oliveira?

    Portugal will fight Belarus for the 4th place and try to put up a decent show against Italy, Turkey (scary frontcourt) and the Czech Republic.

    why will do you cut three players?we have 16 players and we don't cut no one player...

    we will remain 16 until the end of qualifying, selecting from time to time the 12 players...

    good luck for the qualifies

    Italy 97 ‒ Portugal 45

    Portugal suffered a crushing and demoralizing defeat in Sassari. The starting five included 2 point-guards (Mário Fernandes and Miguel Minhava) and a SF (Paulo Cunha) at the PF position... Let’s hope João Santos is fit for the remaining games. Veteran Jaime Silva made his case for the starting SG job (8 points in 18 minutes, 3/4 FG, 2/2 from behind the arch, 2 steals).

    Portugal 67 ‒ Czech Republic 74

    With Mário Fernandes out, and though Miguel Minhava was the starting PG, Portugal played better with young Tomás Barroso (9 points, 5 assists) at the helm. One thing is certain: Jaime Silva is not afraid to shoot threes (20 points, 6/13 from behind the arch). Erratic João Gomes. Cláudio Fonseca tries hard and Elvis Évora is soooooo tired. On a positive note, João Santos is back and Portugal’s hustle play was encouraging.

    It was nice to have seen Francisco Jordão on the stands: his early retirement is one of the saddest stories of recent Portuguese basketball history.

    Turkey 74 ‒ Portugal 62

    This was Portugal’s best game so far.

    Cláudio Fonseca was very active today (16 points, 10 rebounds and 1 block) and João Gomes was back to his usual self (19 points, 8 rebounds ‒ it’s amazing how good a rebounder he is: 7.3 rpg).

    It saddens me to think that João Santos (10P, 7R and 5 steals) has yet to find a team…

    By the way, Portugal outrebounded Turkey (41-36)!

    I don´t speak Turkish but I believe that the Turkish TV commentators said a few words about the extinction of F.C. Porto’s basketball section.
