It is the European Basketball Championship going on for several days and many interesting matches we seen. I had the chance to watch the teams of Turkey, Serbia, Germany , Italy and Greece. The tendencies are that NBA players , are much more better that the one who play in Europe and Euro League in basketball. There are also teams who have good percentage from three pointer and score a lot from there ( Serbia and Italy).
We are now here to speak about that upcoming derby. If you see the odds from bookmakers, you will think that Italy have no chance. Yesterday , Serbs smashed the Turks. The truth is that the Serbian team, was the same who made it to the World Finals in basketball previous year against US –dream team. The way Serbs are playing is the way fans and trainer want to see any team: aggressive defense, perfect points from opponent’s turnovers, aggressive rebounds and many good shoots for 2 and 3 points. Yes, they definitely do have self esteem and are really motivated to get the title.
Here come Italy now on the other side of the pitch. Galinari, Bargnani and Molinari -3 brave warriors who can score , rebound and save the team from any different situations. They made yesterday and managed to win against Germany when they had 20 points passive in the first quarter. It was a very interesting game with many points. Points in basketball are like the goals in football, everyone wants to see and celebrate more. Actually the game will be very difficult for the Italians, they are considered as underdogs , but no one knows. Also , on my opinion the game will definitely will go over points. Both teams like scoring 3 pointers, as I had mentioned in the lines above. Also I think that the plus spread for Italians worth to be played.
Before we come to the end of this post, I would like to say few words about Milos Teodosic. Every good-balanced team has its magician , its brain, its most powerful engine, who does see the game few moves before any other participating on the pitch. This man of honor and smart enough to play chess or solve mathematical problems is able to give killing passes and score unbelievable 3 pointers at any minutes. Right now when I am writing this post, I do remember of a football genius – Pirlo. Just one year ago, he scored a marvelous goal against Torino in the very last minute for the victory 2-1 .
Let’s hope we will see a marvelous basketball performance today from the teams Italy and Serbia. They will definitely do 150 % of their abilities to have the victory at the end. Also I have a point of view and something to emphasize: beware of the game of the “magicians” on the pitch. Always behind a wonderful slam– dunk, does stay an incredible pass. The show is starting in few hours, do not dare just to stay and watch.Please, participate with winning bets also.
