Germany to prove potential

Germany to prove potential

Germany is looking to maximize their potential as they face an impressive Latvia side, for their quarterfinals match. These two teams are aiming to book their tickets in the semi-finals, proving how capable they are as a team. During the group stage, Germany had a perfect run, which is not surprising considering the talents they have. However, since Germany is loaded with capable players, it often leads them to added pressure. As for Latvia, it is indeed surprising that they were able to reach this stage, making them one of the surprising teams in this campaign. In fact, reaching this stage even without their main guy is already an achievement for Latvia. These two teams will not stop there though, as they are aiming to seal their spots in the semi-finals. This meeting is on September 6, 2023, at 4:45 PM (GMT+8).

Germany secured first place in the group with a 100:71 score, marking their fifth win in a row at the FIBA World Cup. Gordon Herbert’s team scored 100 points in the remaining 30 minutes, a significant improvement from their 11 points in the first quarter. Dennis Schroder, with 24 points and 10 assists, was a key player for Slovenia, who could only score 71 points. Germany’s top defense and offense were key factors in their victory, making them a favorite in the tournament. The next game will see Germany’s defense put to the test, as Latvia also boasts a record of 100 points in every game. This victory highlights Germany’s dominance in the tournament.

Franz Wagner remains to be a doubt for Germany, as he is not yet 100% fit, making him questionable here. Fortunately, they have Dennis Schroder who could continue to lead them in their campaign.


FIBA World Cup: Latvia

Latvia advanced to the quarterfinals from second place after a convincing 104:84 win over Brazil. The Baltic team, which had previously been a surprise at this stage of the FIBA World Cup, showed their full potential after defeating France and Spain. Despite Gustavo Conti’s decision to defend Latvia by zone, Latvia’s team made 16 three-pointers, scored 36 points in the third quarter, and routinely ended the match. Andrejs Grazulis scored the most points, with 24 points, mainly from the paint. Latvia has qualified for Mundobasket, but they continue to show potential in the quarterfinals. Banchi will need to focus on defense and find solutions in attack, as they face an offensively talented opponent. Herbert, a better expert than Conti, will be better equipped to prepare the team.

It is unfortunate that Lavia is without their star, Kristaps Porzingis, who never played in the contest. They are also without Dairis Bertans due to his injury.
