Sorry for being late today but I have only one pick for last group round and there is plenty of time to take it.
Lithuania – Lebanon
Lithuania is fast pace team and after playing against defensive teams like Canada, Spain and France market forgot about Lithuanian “overishness”. Lebanon is not a half-court team too and they also don’t have strong defense too.
Lithuania should contro tempo and run offense as they like and learn. After unexpected first spot in the group and play without pressure for their fans in Turkey. Against lebanese defense I do expect Lithuania to score over 85 points and finally 3-pointers should take their role and score those long shots. And also I don’t expect Lithuania to be so defensive to stop Lebanon under 70 points. So far I have seen Lithunian defense was rocking but all opponents were close to scoring 70+ points and Lebanon is a team which can score 70+ points for sure.
I expect something like 92-76 for Lithuania today.
Pick: Over 155.5
