Lithuania And Greece Battle For Bronze
Not only is the bronze medal up for grabs in the 2007 EuroBasket third place game between 2003 champions Lithuania and 2005 title-holders Greece but the winners also will clinch a spot in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

So, there is plenty of motivation for both teams to bounce back from tough losses in the semi-finals.
