GAME REPORT


Georgia Put Pressure On Dutch With Victory

Georgia used a late fourth quarter run to pick up a second straight victory in Group C, beating hosts Croatia 71-58 but are still waiting to see if they will advance to the knockout stage in Lille.

 

Turning Point: Croatia were leading 51-49 with 7:38 minutes left in the game before Georgia raced away with an 18-0 run over 5:27 minutes for a 67-51 lead and the victory.

 

Stats Don't Lie: Georgia shot 51% from the field compared to 34% for Croatia, nailing 7-of-19 three-pointers (37%) compared to 4-of-23 (17%) for Croatia. Georgia turned 17 Croatia turnovers into 23 points while Croatia picked up just nine points on 13 Georgia turnovers. Before Georgia's decisive run, there were 11 lead changes and eight ties.

 

Game Hero: Viktor Sanikidze paced Georgia with 12 points, five rebounds, four assists and four blocks.

 

Bottom Line: Georgia may have celebrated after the game but they are still not through with a 2-3 record as they will be eliminated if Netherlands beat Greece. Croatia finish second in the group at 3-2.
