Bucks unite people ,despite their differences!
I am greek and i am watching my national team against Turkey. Even though Greece and Turkey are two countries, not exactly friendly to each other, every time Ersan makes a shot, i am rooting for him :)
Bucks' fans all over the world,
united and strong!

It is. Also both Serbians and Greek are similar in mentality, both quite competitive and things only need a spark to heat up...

Its night and day compared to, say, the game vs ITA. Aint nobody coasting.

Greece looks better than I expected so far (thru the acrop tourney). But man do they need shooters.

Who's stopping Giannis in this tournament? I don't think Greece winning this **** is even close to out of the question.

Desperately especially since Sloukas (a career 40% 3pt shooter) got injured and is even doubtful for the WC..

HT 38-31

Giannis rested the whole 2Q. Thanasis in very good form today.

Serbias getting much easier baskets/running their offense more than greece, it seems. I know stats so far may not show this. Neither does the score..
