GAME REPORT


Spain Hit Century Mark Against Turkey

Spain overcame their opening night loss to Serbia and picked up their first victory at EuroBasket 2015 in utterly convincing fashion as they rolled over Turkey 104-77 in Group B Day 2 action on Sunday in Berlin.

 

Turning Point: Spain jumped in the driver's seat right from the start and pulled away decisively on the back of a 20-6 burst midway through the second frame. 

 

Stats Don't Lie: Spain dominated all aspects of the clash but their superiority on Sunday was especially evident in their outlandish field goal percentage, 64.5% from the floor. The two-time EuroBasket champions ran in the open court, dished out a collective 24 assists and scored a big amount of their buckets in secondary transition.

 

Game Hero: Pau Gasol registered 21 points on 7-for-11 from the floor, seven rebounds and two blocks in just 23 minutes of action and went to the bench late in the third quarter for a well-deserved rest. Fernando San Emeterio and team captain Felipe Reyes came off the bench and were inspiring for Spain in the second-quarter burst which determined the outcome.

 

Bottom Line: Both Spain and Turkey now stand at 1-1 in Group B but will go into the rest day on an entirely different mindset. Spain could not have showed a more improved image than their game against Serbia, where they had only shot 3-of-19 from three-point range. Turkey appeared tired after their hard-earned Saturday win over Italy and the rest day seems to be coming at the right moment for them to regroup.
