The finals match between Germany and Serbia is actually a close match during the first half of the game, ending in 47-all. In the first half, both teams showed the importance of having a good chemistry against each other. However, when it comes to the second half, it is where Germany proved they deserve the World Cup title. Their defense is exceptional, having a 17-6 run in the third quarter, and ended the quarter with a 64-53 lead. However, during the fourth quarter, they failed to be as dominant, as they allowed Serbia to have a run, and make a possible comeback. Fortunately, Serbia had a turnover and missed a three-pointer, losing their chance for the title. It was Dennis Schroder who led his country with 28 points, followed by Franz Wagner, who chipped in 19 points.

This is the first time that Germany participated in the final of the World Cup, and are fortunate to go home as champions of the World Cup. It is a historic run for the team, considering that they are 8-0 in the contest since the group stage. Germany did not have an easy path going to the finals, especially during the quarterfinals and the semi-finals. In the quarterfinals, they met with Latvia, who are one of the most impressive squads in the campaign. For the semi-finals, they met with USA, who is one of the favorites to win the title, considering the talent they have. However, Germany were able to prove that teamwork is indeed better than individual talents, as they qualified for the finals.
