GAME REPORT

Romania Survive OT Thriller With Sweden

4. Rares Mandache (Romania)
Rares Mandache kept his cool in crunch time to lift Romania to their second win in Group F

Romania broke open a tightly-knotted contest in overtime and prevailed 77-72 over Sweden at home on Wednesday, claiming their second win in a row in EuroBasket 2015 2nd Qualifying Round Group F.

The thrilling encounter featured 16 lead changes, saw the scores tied on four occasions while neither team led by more than six points during regulation.

In a clash that seemed destined for a nail-biting finale, Jonathan Person gave Sweden a 63-59 lead when he split two free throws with 2:31 remaining in the fourth frame.

Rares Mandache, who was immense for Romania in the clutch, responded with a huge three-pointer to reduce to 63-62 but Person again sunk a jumper and restored a 65-62 lead for Sweden, 1:07 from the end of regulation.

Both sides missed one chance each to score until Adrian Tudor was fouled with 12 seconds on the clock and reduced the gap to just one point, 65-64.

Romania quickly fouled Thomas Massamba who made only one of his shots from the charity stripe and Sweden replied with a quick foul on Mihai Silvasan, with seven seconds remaining to the fourth buzzer.

The Romanian forward did not fail and sunk both his free throws to tie the scores at 66 and send the game into overtime, as Martin Pahlmblad misfired on a potential game-winner for Sweden at the death.

Silvasan lifted Romania with an early triple in overtime and, after Sweden wasted two possessions, Mandache followed suit and hit a three of his own to put the hosts ahead 72-66, with 2:36 remaining to the end of the extra period.

Mandanche then made it 73-66 for Romania from the foul line but Anton Gaddefors refused to let the game slip away from Sweden and replied with two back-to-back triples to reduce the gap to 73-72 with just 53 seconds remaining.

Sweden sent Mihail-Octavian Paul to the foul line who kept his cool and gave the hosts a 75-72 lead and Pahlmblad missed a three on the other end that could have tied the scores.

With eight seconds on the clock, the Swedes fouled Silvasan who, to general surprise, missed both of his free throws but Mandache intercepted a hasty pass by Joakim Kjellbom and wrote the final score with a lay-up.

Catalin Baciu led all scorers with 18 points, Mandache finished with 16 points and Silvasan added 15 for Romania, while Pahlmblad had 17 points and Person had 14 for Sweden.

COACH QUOTES

13.08.2014
Quotes Romania vs. Sweden

Vedran Bosnic, Sweden Head Coach
"It was a very tough game. I congratulate the Romanian team on the victory, they play very well. We lost this game because we missed some open shots in overtime but we have to continue the fight. We have a young team and must learn from this game. We will see in the end who will win second place in our group and also the qualification to EuroBasket 2015."

Jonathan Person, Sweden
"It was a crazy game and unfortunately we lost in overtime. Romania had a great night. I want to congratulate them. They played really good basketball. We played well for one half of the game, but I think we had too many turnovers and we missed a lot of open shots. We are not satisfied with this game and we have to move on to the next game against Slovakia."

Marcel Tenter, Romania Head Coach
"This game had it all: show, drama and quality basketball. And, obviously, we had a great support from our fans; they supported us when we needed it. It was very important for the moral of my team. I want to congratulate my team on their fight on this night, but also I must thank the crowd and my technical staff. It was a great victory, achieved in overtime, and this is the reason why we enjoyed it so much. But, from tomorrow on we must focus on the next game against Latvia."

Mihai Silvasan, Romania
"We had a very tough game against a very strong team. But we've played very good, we had such a solid defence and unlike in our previous campaigns we stayed mentally strong even when we were in disadvantage on the scoreboard. Now we are looking forward to playing against Latvia. They seem to be the strongest team in our group but we'll go to Latvia to win the game."

COACH QUOTES

13.08.2014
Quotes Romania vs. Sweden

Vedran Bosnic, Sweden Head Coach
"It was a very tough game. I congratulate the Romanian team on the victory, they play very well. We lost this game because we missed some open shots in overtime but we have to continue the fight. We have a young team and must learn from this game. We will see in the end who will win second place in our group and also the qualification to EuroBasket 2015."

Jonathan Person, Sweden
"It was a crazy game and unfortunately we lost in overtime. Romania had a great night. I want to congratulate them. They played really good basketball. We played well for one half of the game, but I think we had too many turnovers and we missed a lot of open shots. We are not satisfied with this game and we have to move on to the next game against Slovakia."

Marcel Tenter, Romania Head Coach
"This game had it all: show, drama and quality basketball. And, obviously, we had a great support from our fans; they supported us when we needed it. It was very important for the moral of my team. I want to congratulate my team on their fight on this night, but also I must thank the crowd and my technical staff. It was a great victory, achieved in overtime, and this is the reason why we enjoyed it so much. But, from tomorrow on we must focus on the next game against Latvia."

Mihai Silvasan, Romania
"We had a very tough game against a very strong team. But we've played very good, we had such a solid defence and unlike in our previous campaigns we stayed mentally strong even when we were in disadvantage on the scoreboard. Now we are looking forward to playing against Latvia. They seem to be the strongest team in our group but we'll go to Latvia to win the game."
