If I would be asked to name this group I would call it “Group of Wrong Favorites”. According to odds group A have 2 clear favorites – Greece and Croatia. Public as usually expects big teams to have easy life on first stage but as often happens some of them starting to experience problems at the start of the tournament. This group also has one I would say “questioned” favorite…

LATVIA Now is the time for this young generation to write their names in Latvian, and probably European, basketball history. Since 2007 centre Andris Biedrins of NBA club Golden State Warriors has become a cornerstone of the team on both sides of the court and his appearance make more solid team performance.

SERBIA In spite of a lengthy list of NBA absentees, a slot in the ‘Group of Death’,no captain fantastic and Rakocevic opting out, Serbia have enough in their locker to survive. With a core of European high fliers and an experienced coach driving them, they are slowly but surely heading in the right direction again. Passing the Group stages would signal success. The masterplan may have the 2012 Olympic Games…

Spain – Lithuania Both teams are in bad physical conditions here but Spain have more class and balance in their roster. Lithuania looks awful on this tournament and looking into their past games I can’t see what they can offer tonight for Spain. Lithuania is weaker team on all positions and what is more important can’t play for 40 minutes with needed concetration.

Serbia – Russia Heh.. what a game awaits us. Two very disciplined and organized team with very very good coaches and plenty of young players… It is hard to predict the outcome here because a lot will depend on coach and players decisions on the court, psychology and mentality.

Player average points scoredGasol, Pau Under 17,5 @ 1.85 Unibet 3/10 Gasol missed all preparation camp and I think he will gain form from game to game as well as playing minutes and scored points. 2 low scoring games under 12 points should be enough to keep tournament scoring under 17.5

TURKEY The team consists mostly of the ever so successful qualification round players. The emergence of Hidayet Turkoglu not only as a star but also a leader fills a big void on the team. Turkey many times seems in dire need of direction and now Turkoglu can provide it. Unlike many stars, Turkoglu doesn’t need the ball in his hands, nor does he care that much about personal accolades, making…
