Greece Loses Game Against USA in FIBA Basketball World Cup



Greece lost to the powerful USA National Team 69-53 on Saturday in its fourth game of this year’s FIBA World Cup held in China.

The Greek team didn’t manage to repeat the triumph of 2006 when they beat the Americans 101-95.

This is the first game of the round of ”16” for Greece in this year’s competition.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and his squad are in Group K, along with the teams of the US, Brazil and the Czech Republic.

The NBA MVP scored 15 points and had 13 rebounds in nearly 27 minutes of action.

In general, the Greek team didn’t show great determination and the defeat came as no surprise.

Now the Greeks will play against the Czech Republic on Monday, where they have to win by a large margin if they want to keep progressing to the next round.
