Greece made its first win at these Olympic Games, very easy, against Germany. Panagiotis Yannakis made the first surprise at the game by starting the game with Andreas Gliniadakis (215-C-81), in order to face better Chris Kaman (213-C-82, college: Cent.Michigan), who also made the first basket for Greece. Germany made four early mistakes, after Greece's pressure, from which Greece took advantage and took the lead with 7-0, which was then extended to 12-2. The advantage remained for Greece (19-13), but Germany has started scoring, especially from 3-point line (3/4 successful attempts). However, this percentage increased to 5/7, with Dirk Nowitzki (211-F-78) having two successful consecutive attempts, and the first period ended at 23-21, with a 10-2 serie.
The second period started with an early 12-0 from Greece with Dimitris Diamantidis (196-G-80) scoring 6 points, to give a 8-point lead (33-23), while Germany hasn't scored for 5:06 minutes at this period. The picture of the game didn't change much until the end of this first half, although Germany reduced the difference at 6 points (39-33), due to the 3-point shots, before Greece with a 5-0 serie, took the final lead of 11 points (44-33). Theodoros Papaloukas (200-G-77, agency: Interperformances) appearance at this second period should also be mentioned (6 points and very good defense), without forgetting the general good percentage at free throws. On the other hand, Germany may had more rebounds and a very good percentage at 3-point shots, but its turnovers and Creece's very good defense (10 points at the second period) were proved important at this first half (Dirk Nowitzki had also three fouls).
At the second half the difference extended at 15 points for Greece (50-35), 7:21 before the end of the third period. Germany reduced it at 10 (50-40), but with the help of Vassilis Spanoulis (193-G-82, agency: Beo Basket) and mainly Andreas Gliniadakis (8 points) it was restored quickly (57-40), with 5 minutes till the end, and 66-45 later. The final difference at this period was shaped at 21 points (69-48).
The final period didn't change much at the whole picture. Greece's defense remained strong, Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman were preferred to rest. The difference was increased even to 27 points (87-60), before its final shape at 23 (87-64).
Greece: Theodoros Papaloukas 15, Ioannis Bouroussis (212-C-83, agency: FCM) 5, Nikos Zisis (195-G-83) 2,
