Spain vs Serbia by Lloyds
In the last match of the group phase, the host country Spain will play against Serbia. Both teams secured their place in the elimination phase. Spain has been perfect 4-0 so far, winning all the matches by at least 19 points or more. On the other hand, Serbia (2-2) will probably advance from the 4th spot unless they pull off a stunner against Spain, which is highly hypothetical. The hosts are definitely looking as the favorite to win the first place since they are crushing the competition in the tougher schedule than their main rival, USA. Last night Spain easily dealt with France (88-64), in a game which was already over at the halftime. The Spaniards had a 10-point lead at the halftime and never looked back. Their game is beautiful to watch and the combination of their centers and perimeter players just seems unstoppable. Spain is likely to rotate a bit tomorrow and give its key players some rest before they embark on the harder part of the journey to the title. The opponent, Serbia, will also try to rest some starters since it was a busy schedule in the past couple of days and they don't have the luxury of depth like Spain. Coach Sasa Djordjevic will look to make some adjustments, especially defensively as their defense was poor in matches against France and Brazil. Serbia will advance solely because they have beaten the two inferior teams, Egypt and Iran. The main flaw of this team is defending the opponent's 3pt shooting, wheres seen they gave up too many threes in their two losses. This weakness will get further more exposed by Spain who are loaded with shooters.
Both sides will be free of any pressure as result won't impact the standings too much. The game could be like an exhibition game for the fans as it will close the whole group stage.
