2023 FIBA World Cup Group K Preview, Prediction & How to Watch

31 Aug 2023

  • Luka Doncic looking to shoot Slovenia to quarter finals after stellar First Round performance
  • Dante Exum looking to ruin World Cup Mavs reunion with Luka
  • Germany building on solid first round performance

Group K Predicted Final Standings

  1. Germany
  2. Australia
  3. Slovenia
  4. Georgia

The pivotal match: Australia vs Slovenia

Luka Doncic carried his Slovenia team to a comfortable 3-0 in a not-so-competitive Group F. The question now is – can Doncic make up for a general lack of depth as the competition steps up?

Australia will be a formidable opponent as Patty Mills, Josh Giddey and fresh Mavs teammate Dante Exum approach a must-win game for the boomers after they qualified second from the First Round after losing in their match against Germany.

Slovenia will need a similar performance to what their supporting cast did against Georgia if they want to fend off Australia and punch their tickets to the Quarter Finals.

Germany looking poised to maintain leadership as they eye quarter finals spot

Germany look set to qualify for the World Cup quarter finals as they should be easily able to beat outsider Georgia and stroll to the next round. The Germans managed to upset Australia behind Dennis Schroder’s 30 points and 8 dimes.

The Raptors playmaker, supported by Indiana Pacers big man Theis and Isaac Bonga, will want to secure a spot to the quarter finals with a convincing win against Georgia. The final faceoff against Slovenia will show if Germany are serious dark horses for this FIBA World Cup, or if the win against Australia was a fluke.
