GAME REPORT

24.08.2014
Gutoaia Wins It For Romania At The Death
9. Vlad Moldoveanu (Romania)
Vlad Moldoveanu and Romania defeated Sweden in the final seconds of the game

Romania abolished a 13-point third-quarter lead on Sunday but Adrian Gutoaia sunk a jumper at the final buzzer to lift them 88-86 over Sweden, in EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualifying Round Day 5 action.

Romania have now improved to 4-1 in Group F and maintain  their qualification options intact, while Sweden have dropped to 1-4 in the standings and exited the race to earn a spot at EuroBasket 2015.

The guests established their dominance on the boards right from tip-off and jumped immediately in the driving seat.

Mihail-Octavian Paul finished a fast break at the rim just before the half-time buzzer for Romania to go into the locker rooms leading 47-38 and the same player drilled a triple with 7:57 remaining in the third quarter to give his team their biggest lead all night, 51-38.

Sweden realised that an immediate reaction was needed for the game to not slip away and responded with a 10-0 run of their own, which Joakim Kjellbom capped off with an and-one play 5:01 from the third buzzer.

Rares Mandache and Gutoaia restored Romania's 13-point lead by the start of the fourth frame, 67-54, but once again Sweden had a response.

The hosts poured in 19 points in the first five minutes of the final frame and an Anton Gaddefors lay-up reduced the gap to 75-73 with 4:52 left on the clock.

With 1:03 remaining, young point guard Ludvig Hakanson drilled his fourth three-pointer and brought Sweden ahead for the first time, 84-83.

Romania misfired on the other end and fouled Hakanson, who split his free-throws and made it 85-83 with 33 seconds to play.

Paul levelled the scores from the charity stripe and then Romania fouled Hakanson again, who once again made only one of his two shots from the line and Sweden edged ahead 86-85, with 25 seconds on the clock.

The Swedes choose to foul once again and they sent Gutoaia to the stripe, who continued the established pattern of missing one free throw.

Only this time around, Titus Nicoara emerged with the offensive board and passed back to Gutoaia, who missed the jumper but almost incredibly came up with his own rebound to earn a second chance.

He did not miss the second time, nailing the game-winner at the death to break the Swedish home crowd's hearts while igniting jubilant celebrations on the Romanian bench.

Vlad Moldoveanu spearheaded the Romanian charge with 22 points, while game-hero Gutoaia finished with 15 points, six rebounds and three assists.

For Sweden, both Hakanson and Kjellbom collected 20 points, the latter also adding 11 rebounds to complete a double-double performance in defeat.

COACH QUOTES

24.08.2014
Quotes: Sweden vs. Romania
Vlad Moldoveanu, Romania

"It was a tough game for us. It felt like we had control of the game in three quarters. Then Sweden played great in the fourth quarter and forced us into turnovers. We had to work hard to keep our composure, in the end it felt like the game could have gone either way, it was crazy. A bounce here and a bounce there. I'm very happy we got the win."

Ludvig Håkanson, Sweden
"We didn't play up to our capacity at all in the first three quarters. In the previous game we had played defence well enough to keep our opponents in the 60's, today we let Romania score 47 points in the first half. Then we made a great job in the fourth quarter and almost got the win. It feels very tough, losing three games that were so close."

Marcel Dan Tenter, Head Coach Romania
"We played very well for three quarters, it felt like we were in control of the game. We scored the way we wanted to score and we controlled how many points Sweden were allowed to score. Then in the fourth quarter they jumped on us and started trapping and we had problems coming up with good solutions. Sweden were very tough, they played great in the end, I'm very happy we came away with the win. Now we need to refocus for the last game against Latvia."

Vedran Bosnic, Head Coach Sweden
"Very tough game for us. I follow a lot of basketball and I can't remember seeing a team losing three games in a row in the last seconds. A tip-in here, a missed free-throw there, a missed box-out... Today, we couldn't get it going mentally after the game against Latvia. That was a tough game that took a lot out of us and we didn't manage to be mentally string in this game. We have a young team and injuries have forced us to look for new leaders in almost every game. We have had our chances and played some very good games with a young and inexperienced team. We need to continue to work hard and develop the players, give them experience. We have something to build upon."

COACH QUOTES

24.08.2014
Quotes: Sweden vs. Romania
Vlad Moldoveanu, Romania

"It was a tough game for us. It felt like we had control of the game in three quarters. Then Sweden played great in the fourth quarter and forced us into turnovers. We had to work hard to keep our composure, in the end it felt like the game could have gone either way, it was crazy. A bounce here and a bounce there. I'm very happy we got the win."

Ludvig Håkanson, Sweden
"We didn't play up to our capacity at all in the first three quarters. In the previous game we had played defence well enough to keep our opponents in the 60's, today we let Romania score 47 points in the first half. Then we made a great job in the fourth quarter and almost got the win. It feels very tough, losing three games that were so close."

Marcel Dan Tenter, Head Coach Romania
"We played very well for three quarters, it felt like we were in control of the game. We scored the way we wanted to score and we controlled how many points Sweden were allowed to score. Then in the fourth quarter they jumped on us and started trapping and we had problems coming up with good solutions. Sweden were very tough, they played great in the end, I'm very happy we came away with the win. Now we need to refocus for the last game against Latvia."

Vedran Bosnic, Head Coach Sweden
"Very tough game for us. I follow a lot of basketball and I can't remember seeing a team losing three games in a row in the last seconds. A tip-in here, a missed free-throw there, a missed box-out... Today, we couldn't get it going mentally after the game against Latvia. That was a tough game that took a lot out of us and we didn't manage to be mentally string in this game. We have a young team and injuries have forced us to look for new leaders in almost every game. We have had our chances and played some very good games with a young and inexperienced team. We need to continue to work hard and develop the players, give them experience. We have something to build upon."
