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.
Last Time Out: Lithuania lost in the semis to Russia 86-74 while Greece fell to Spain 82-77.
Key Match-Up: Dimitrios Diamantidis vs Sarunas Jasikevicius. Russia did a great job frustrating Lithuania's main man Jasikevicius, who had just five points and three assists with five turnovers in the semi-final loss. Expect Diamantidis to shadow Jasikevicius's every move.
X-Factor: Lithuania big men Ksistof and Darjus Lavrinovic. The twin brothers have combined for just seven points in their last two games but Lithuania need to have at least one in-form Lavrinovic brother to break down the Greece defense.
Stats: Greece held Slovenia to 27% (6-of-22) from three-point range in the quarter-finals but Spain lit up the still-reigning champions for 50% (11-of-22) on Saturday.
Sounding Off: Greece forward Kostas Tsartsaris: "We still have one more game and we want to win a medal."
