Which team do you think will win the Eurobasket? I watched France VS Greece last night. Greece won easily. I think Greece will be in the top 3 along with Lithouania and Spain :!:

Greece won Bosnia today. But yesterday they lost to Slovenia. I don't think Greece can win. I hope they will be in the top 4!

Russia is good. Better than Slovenia. I give 55%-45% for Russia. Lithuania is even harder. If Greece manages to win Lithuania they can win the Euro! :shock:

Greece won Russia 66-61! But France won Lithuania !!!!! So now Greece will have to play with France. Greece easily won France with 14 points difference some days ago. Lets hope that they will do it again and we will see Greece in the final. After Euro 2004 we wouldn't mind Eurobasket 2005 :wink:

Greece to the final. With a 3 point shop 3 seconds from the end they won France 67-66!

A three-pointer by Dimitrios Diamantidis three seconds from the end set off a thunderous celebration in the Belgrade Arena on Saturday night as the Greeks fought back from a seven-point deficit in the final minute to stun France 67-66 and advance to the gold medal game.

France seemed to be cruising towards their first EuroBasket medal game appearance since 1935 after Parker drained a three-pointer with 1:12 reamining to give the French a 58-51 advantage in a game that was neck-and neck throughout. But Parker clanked a pair of free throws with 38 seconds to go and commited a turnover eight seconds later.

Papadopoulos´ dunk with 26 seconds to go cut the deficit to two at 62-60. Parker was fouled a second later and this time the San Antonio Spurs point guard hit both. Papaloukas scored again down low and Rigadeau connected on one of two as the French still maintained a 65-62 lead.

Papaloukas was fouled with 13 seconds to go and hit both and then fouled Rigadeau with 11 seconds.

After Rigaudeau made just one of two from the line with 11 seconds remaining, Greece inbounded the ball to Nikos Zisis who raced up the floor and towards the basket before kicking the ball out to Diamantidis who never hesitated when releasing his left-handed shot which hit the bottom of the net.


Greece will play in the final with Germany that won Spain 73-72.
