GAME REPORT

10.08.2014
Poland Edge Out Germany On Opening Night
Adam Waczynski
Adam Waczynski carried his good form from the warm-up games into the main competition, scoring 19 points

Two free-throws by Mateusz Ponitka 18 seconds from time gave Poland a hard-earned 68-67 win over Germany at home on Sunday, in their opening game in EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualifying Round Group C.

Poland led for 35 minutes in the encounter but, time and time again, the resilient Germans would pull back, for the game to be decided in the dying seconds.

The hosts enjoyed their biggest lead late in the third, after Przemyslaw Zamojski drilled a triple and Ponitka followed up with a dunk 1:59 from the end of the period, to make it 53-43 for Poland.

Germany however started the fourth quarter on a 6-0 run which Karsten Tadda capped off with a fast break lay-up with 8:12 left to play, to tie the scores at 56.

With 2:16 remaining to the final buzzer, Adam Waczynski sunk two free throws and gave Poland a 66-60 cushion.

No one really expected the Germans to go away that easily though and Dennis Schröder first dished out an assist to Robert Benzing, then drilled a triple and lastly made two shots of his own from the foul line to pull his team ahead for the first time since the second quarter, 67-66 with only 34 seconds left on the clock.

At the other end of the floor, Maik Zirbes fouled Ponitka and the Polish winger kept his calm at the stripe to sink both decisive free-throws.

Germany called a time-out, run down the clock on their last possession and Schröder took the responsibility of the crucial shot.

The point guard's three-point attempt fell short however and although Zirbes came up with the offensive board, he did not have time to fire off a put-back shot.

Waczynski was in impressive form for Poland early on, scoring 11 points in the opening quarter, and finished with a game-high 19 points.

Ponitka only had five points in the first half but rose the occasion late and collected 16 points and five rebounds, while Aaron Cel picked up a double-double of 10 points and 10 boards in what was his first official game in a Polish jersey.

For Germany, Schröder and Heiko Schaffartzik had 16 points apiece in the losing effort.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes: Poland vs. Germany

Emir Mutapcić, Germany Head Coach
"In the end luck was on the side of the Polish team. This was a game played between two young teams with many good young players. In my opinion both teams were nervous. We started very slowly. In the first quarter Poland scored 20 points and 14 of them were made by Adam Waczynski. Then we played better defence, but we didn't have rhythm on offence for all 40 minutes. We fought to the end and that was positive. We had a situation to win the game, but we missed the last shot."

Heiko Schaffartzik, Germany
"We started the qualifications with a loss. We didn't start the game very well, but we fought to the end. If we want to win against Austria on Wednesday, we have to play better. Everyone can play today - Switzerland beat Russia. We are all self-critical, me included. We were very well prepared by the coaches, but it was a loss made by the players."

Mike Taylor Poland Head Coach
"I want to give credit and respect to my players. It was a really hard fought game. I'm proud of our defensive effort. Germany had a great defensive plan, they pressured us. We found a way to make plays on the offensive end. We responded very well to all kinds of challenges. That was a great team win."

Adam Waczynski, Poland
"I'm very happy that we've managed to win in this hard fought game. We've withstood the pressure and made our game plan work. We have been preparing for this game very long. Our defence stopped their main shooters. Every player gave something to this win."

COACH QUOTES

10.08.2014
Quotes: Poland vs. Germany

Emir Mutapcić, Germany Head Coach
"In the end luck was on the side of the Polish team. This was a game played between two young teams with many good young players. In my opinion both teams were nervous. We started very slowly. In the first quarter Poland scored 20 points and 14 of them were made by Adam Waczynski. Then we played better defence, but we didn't have rhythm on offence for all 40 minutes. We fought to the end and that was positive. We had a situation to win the game, but we missed the last shot."

Heiko Schaffartzik, Germany
"We started the qualifications with a loss. We didn't start the game very well, but we fought to the end. If we want to win against Austria on Wednesday, we have to play better. Everyone can play today - Switzerland beat Russia. We are all self-critical, me included. We were very well prepared by the coaches, but it was a loss made by the players."

Mike Taylor Poland Head Coach
"I want to give credit and respect to my players. It was a really hard fought game. I'm proud of our defensive effort. Germany had a great defensive plan, they pressured us. We found a way to make plays on the offensive end. We responded very well to all kinds of challenges. That was a great team win."

Adam Waczynski, Poland
"I'm very happy that we've managed to win in this hard fought game. We've withstood the pressure and made our game plan work. We have been preparing for this game very long. Our defence stopped their main shooters. Every player gave something to this win."
