Spain Wins Bronze Medal Game

In the bronze medal clash, teams have traded baskets during the first period, which stayed close all the way. Both coaches wanted to keep their star players fresh in the early phases by not matching them up against the opponent's. Papic on Gasol and Paraiso on Nowitzki. However, both match-ups happened to be favouring the deadly weapons with Gasol scoring 13 on 3/4 3-point shooting and Nowitzki 10. Extremely high field goal percentage with both teams above 50% in the first period was the reason for the big numbers on the scoreboard: 22-24 for Spain.
