With the referees being totally pro-USA, the Greek NT lost the game tonight against the Americans and also the chance to claim the first place in the Globe against Croatia tomorrow. The Greek NT played an amazing game but had the very bad luck to compete against an extra terrestrial game by Jalen Brunson (188-G-97) who scored 30 points (having an a average of 10 before this game)

Tyler Dorsey (193-SG-96) and Vassileios Vasileios Charalampopoulos (206-SF-97) were amazing but unfortunately they didn't had the assistance from the big guys of the Greek NT as Georgios Papagiannis (214-C-97) even though he begun the game very positive scoring the first eight of ten points of his team at the first period, he was forgotten in the bench from Coach Papatheodorou and when he enter in the court at the third period he was called two offensive fouls, which the men in gray really invented, so the Greek giant was not able to help in the defense as he was doing in the previous games of the Greek NT.

The game was a total derby as the Americans could not take the score in the levels they wanted with the biggest deficit coming to the end as in the most of the game the deficit was between 3-5 points. With the Greek bench receiving three technical fouls, and the Greek players receiving not less than eight offensive fouls during the game!!!

The final 82-76 bringing the American NT to the finals to claim the World's top seat against the Croatian NT which earlier thrashed the Turkish NT with nearly fifty points difference!!

The top scorers of the Game were as follows:
Greece: Tyler Dorsey 23 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal, Vasileios Charalampopoulos 21 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal, Georgios Papagiannis 10 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 block shots

USA: Brunson 30 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal, Ferguson 11 points, Giles 13 points and 11 rebounds, Tatum 11 points and 4 rebounds.

It is worth mentioned that in all the categories nearly the two teams were more or less equal other than the rebounding area where the Americans dashed down 44 rebounds and that was one of the major reasons that the Greek NT lost the game tonight, as the Greek NT grabbed only 33 with the two Greek centers having only 9 altogether, as Georgios Papagiannis had only 4, and Mitoglou only 5, while in the assists the Americans had 10 against the 16 of the Greek NT. Furthermore, the Greek Head Coach used only five players, while another three had 2-5 minutes, while the American Head Coach used 9 players with another two players having 6-7 minutes per head, so he had a much greater rotation...
