More then a simple game!!! It will be though one. Hopefully we can win. If we can stop Ukic and Tomic our job would be much easier. Anyway, I think we are better team, but we have to prove that on court. I say bench scoring will decide this game in our favor.

PS it is interesting that we also play against Croatia today in soccer under 21 teams...

If Serbia plays one on one, who is going to stop Bogdanovic from the arc?
If Serbia plays zone, who is going to stop Bogdanovic from open threes?

:D

Tomic might get loaded with fouls again :/
Ukic is some days on, some days off

Velickovic will be the decider of the game imo. If he performs, Serbia wins, if not, then Tomas or Ukic must not perform either etc...

Ukic looking good early on.

Okay I retract my statement, looking at things right now, it won't be an easy game at any stretch.

Damn Croatia is looking good so far. Tomic decent so far but Ukic is playing great.

Less than 2 minutes left, doesn't look like Croatia will get back in it.

Hard game for us, but we won again against Croatia. Teodosic played hurt, so that is one of the reasons for his poor play. But Croatians played good defense in general. Bjelica and Markovic injured during the game and that could be problem for next game. I still don't know if it serious, but Bjelica didn't play after he left the game. Markovic came back, but quickly left again. Rasic made critical move when he sneaked and scored quick two points with 5 seconds (I think) left. Great move and poor defense from Croatia.
The good thing is that we'll have few days to rest, heal and prepare for Spain...

Spain vs. Croatia will come down to a game of the bigs since their wings pretty much cancel each other out...should be interesting.
