GAME REPORT


Lithuania Rock Helpless Danes

Fans at Sports Hall Topolica in Bar, Montenegro winessed an uncomfortable result in Group B when Lithuania smashed Denmark 92-47 on Friday evening.

Lithuania used the game to regain some confidence after the 20 point loss yesterday and climbed to a 1-1 record, while Denmark was taken back to the ground after their dreamy start in Day 1 with the win over Greece, to hold a 1-1 record as well.

Tomorrow Lithuania will try to keep the good momentum against Greece while Denmark will try to recover in another tough game against France.

Tomas Dimsa led Lithuania with 22 points, Jokubas Gintvainis added 12 while nine other players contributed points as well.

Rasmus Larsen was the top scorer of Denmark with 17 points and nine rebounds.

"We weren't ready for this level and we paid for it," said Steen Guido Hansen of Denmark's bench.

"Maybe my players were a bit over confident after yesterday but we learned a lesson today when we had to play against the aggressiveness and pace of Lithuania, which is something our players aren't used to."

The one-sided scenario was written right from the tip off as Lithuania, in their very typical way, showed no mercy and attacked the Danish basket time after time.

The first eight points were scored by Lithuania, but Denmark answered with four and it seemed decent, yet following was a 24-1 run that set a totally different angle for the game.

Another run, this time 15-2 in the second quarter created a 39 point gap already in the first half, and it wasn't about to be over.

Lithuania's lead reached at its peak 59 points and it seemed like the score is on the way to an unpleasant spot, but Denmark hit shots from the arc and connected 14 points in a row to finally lose by just 45 points and escape a much bigger gap.
