A pivotal match-up at the FIBA World Cup as the Second Round begins 

Second Round Group J of the FIBA World Cup features an opening matchup of two European powerhouses. Lithuania, led by Jonas Valanciunas, went 3-0 in the group stage and ended as Group D winners. While Valanciunas didn’t dominate as expected in their last match against Montenegro, it opened the door for teammate Rokas Jokubaitis to shine on the global stage. They’ll need everyone on bringing their A-Game to get the win over Greece, who aren’t at full strength, but more than capable of pulling off the upset.  


Greece come into this one, as runners-up from Group C, riding high after a 15-point comeback in their last group game over New Zealand. Off the back of a standout performance from their leading scorer at the tournament, Ioannis Papapetrou, the Hellenics will know their team have a shot to get a much-needed win to start the Second Round.
