Greece survived a furious second-half fightback by Israel on Tuesday night at the Pionirr Arena in Belgrade to win 67-61 and advance to a quarter-final showdown with Russia.

Panagiotis Yannakis' Greeks led by as many as 15 points in the second half but saw their lead dwindle to just three late in the fourth quarter before holding on for the triumph.
