On a nice Tuesday evening in Shanghai, final winner and the runner up of 2010 FIBA World Cup teams had faced each other on a nail biter match. It is not an easy task to compete with the number 1 team in FIBA standings and survive but was this game an opportunity that Turkey missed or a big survival they overcome?
Before the game, last world champion the USA was the clear favorite. The game started with the US team finding the first points but throughout the game, two team’s performance was so close. While the second quarter of the game finished with a tie, the USA finished ahead the first quarter and overtime and Turkey finished ahead the third and fourth quarters. Even though the score was too close, the statistics show that US team led the game with a small margin. Turkish squad called “12 Giant Men” had a really good outrun lately and with experienced NBA Players, namely İlyasova, Osman, and Korkmaz, they missed a very big chance. They were in the verge of beating the invincible team of USA. However, FIBAWC still continues. For your bets in this tournament, we advise you to open an account via the best betting agent.
Last Matches of First Group Stage
After this match, it became clear that in Group E, USA is the first team to qualify for the next round. Also, it is clear that Japan is the first team will be dropped out before the next stage. Last matches are as it follows: US vs Japan and Turkey vs the Czech Republic. These last matches of the first group stage will decide who will be the second to qualify, Turkey or Czech Republic?
Turkey will face Czech Republic on Thursday. When we look at these two teams’ match history, they faced each other in a total of 6 games and 4 of these matches ended in favor to Turkey. All in all, with NBA players in their squads and the match history shows that Turkey’s chance to move to the next stage is higher.
Second Group Stage
USA already qualifying to this stage, took its place on Group K with Brazil which they also already qualify from Group F. After the last matches the 2nd teams of Group E and F will also qualify to this stage. If Turkey moves up from Group E, the other candidate for last place will be either Greece or New Zealand. In fact, Turkey’s Mediterranean neighbor Greece also had a similar situation as Turkey. They won their first match against the last placed team Montenegro and on the next match faced with Brazil which they finished the game just one point behind. Maybe it is all neighbors’ destiny after all.
