Despite the elimination of Les Bleus in the first round and then of reigning world champion Spain in the second round, the Basketball World Cup continues. The surprising Latvians, who fell for Les Bleus and La Roja, were this time beaten by Germany (81-79). The Mannschaft put an end to the epic Latvian, who knew how to maintain hope in a last quarter which saw them recover almost entirely a delay of 14 points. The Germans will face, for their first world semi-final since 2002, the United States, which crushed Italy in their quarter-final (100-63).
Finally, Serbia stifled Lithuania (87-68), yet victorious against the United States in the second group stage. The compatriots of the NBA champion and MVP of the finals Nikola Jokic, absent from this World Cup, will play against the winner of the match between Canada and Slovenia. The match can be followed on beIN Sports 1 from 2:30 p.m. this Wednesday, September 6, to find Luka Doncic and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in particular.
