Spain, with green shoots from Lorenzo Brown, falls to a Greece led by Calathes and Antetokoumpo in their first test


In their first game of preparation for the Eurobasket, the renewed Spanish basketball team suffered a resounding defeat against Greece (86-70) in a duel where NBA star Giannis Antetokoumpo (31 points and 10 rebounds) pulled his own, assumed all the protagonism and managed to placate the threat of reaction from Sergio Scariolo’s men in the second half. He began the confrontation with the Milwaukee Bucks player and Willy Hernángómez offensively supporting their respective teams in the first scores. They were the few moments in which Spain withstood the pull since from 5-7 the current world champions would not get ahead again. An 8-0 run, in which Dorsey and Papanikolau added to the scoring inspiration of Antetokounmpo, gave wings to a local team that from that moment began to look superior against an opponent that suffered excessively in defense. It was the beginning of the match where Greece more than doubled the score of the Spaniards, that they did not find solutions in any of the two baskets. Thus, with seven minutes played in the second quarter, the difference was twenty-one points (46-25), despite the fact that five unanswered points from debutant Lorenzo Brown had given some air to the visitors, putting them down fifteen. I looked overwhelmed. But that was where he hit rock bottom. A 10-2 run with baskets by the Hernangómez brothers, by Rudy Fernández and a triple by Jaime Fernández made it 48-35 at halftime and showed that, beyond the adjustments that must be made in the game, the claw He has not been lost in this new stage. However, that dynamic was not enough to stop the power of Giannis Antetokoumpo, who came back from the locker room plugged in to score seven of the host’s first nine points in the third quarter. That streak again raised the income to nineteen (59-40) and, once again, Spain emerged from the abyss. Step by step, thanks to four points from Sebas Saiz, a triple from Brizuela and successes from Sima and López-Aróstegui, the panorama radically changed and an 11-1 was forged that caused Spain to face the decisive fourth only six down ( 63-57, min 30). It was then that Antekoumpo appeared once again to put things in their place. The Bucks player once again carried the team on his broad shoulders and this time he did it definitively, scoring repeatedly and activating his teammates and the pavilion, which enjoyed the display of its star. In just over five minutes converted nine points of all colors that extinguished the Spanish fire and raised the advantage again above fifteen points. It was the final stone on which victory was built. Two days of reflection and analysis now await Spain to exact revenge in Madrid, where they will meet again on Thursday.- Technical sheet: 86 – Greece (31+19+13+24): Calathes (7), Dorsey (11), Papanikolau (5), Giannis Antetokounmpo (31), Kostas Antetokounmpo (7) -starting five-, Agrabanis (9), Kalaitzakis (4), Papapetrou (2), Thanasis Antetokounmpo (3), Larentzakis (3) , Bochoridis (2), Kaselakis (2).70 – Spain (13+22+22+13): Brown (7), Pradilla (10), López-Arostegui (4), Willy Hernangómez (15), Juancho Hernangómez ( 4) -starting five-, Rudy Fernández (3), Colom (3), Saiz (8), Parra (-), Sima (3), Brizuela (8), Yusta (2), Jaime Fernández (3).
