Serbia and Latvia together with Lithuania are all 2-1 after three games played. In this group are also Macedonia, Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina and these three are all right now with score 1-2. So, after previous round results when Serbia lost to Macedonia and Bosnia beat Montenegro, everything become open and all teams have their chances to finish among top 3 places which leads to the next group stage.
Back to game between Serbia and Latvia, it si really hard to say how come this for me very short spread. I mean only 5.5 points on Latvia? That's more than generously if you want to bet on serbian team.
Note that Serbian players more or less easily won opening match against strongest team of this group (vs Lithuania 63-56) and then demolished Bosnia & Herzegovina (although final score 77-67 does not show this in full). Defeat from Macedonia arrived in my opinion maybe because of relaxed approach after two good games, maybe little bit because of the refs who seemed like they wanted to correct some huge mistakes that have been made against Macedonia in previous games. In any case, defeat of Macedonia has not changed my opinion about quality of Serbian team.
On the other side Latvia beat Bosnia pretty much with same points difference like Serbia did. But in fact it was much closer game then final result shows. Also note Latvia was shooting even 40% for three point in that meeting. 3 point is their main weapon and when this is not working, then they are in trouble. I see trouble for them also today cause I doubt Serbian head coach Dusan Ivkovic will allow to Latvia the same what happened in friendly game between these sides some month ago. Back then, Latvia managed to hit many open 3 point shoots, they were leading even with double digits during thr 2nd quarter but until half it was tied and at the end easy victory for the Serbs (67-54).
Maybe not so easy this time but definitely above this handicap line.
