The FIBA World Cup Second Round comes down to the final matchups in Group L
Second Round Group L of the FIBA World Cup has Latvia coming as the team no one wants to face after yet another major upset over a European powerhouse. In the first group stage it was France. In the Second Round, it was Spain. They just keep playing great team basketball, which was best represented in their game versus Spain when five players scored in double digits. Davis Bertans ultimately led the team scoring 16 points and 3 rebounds in the upset win, but their team basketball has the whole tournament on notice.
Brazil will be equally fired-up after pulling off a Goliath-sized upset of their own. It was heated and defensive battle, ending 69-65 for the underdog Brazilians over the heavily favoured Canadians. This upset shook up Group L even more with everyone now owning a 3-1 record. Led by a player who knows Canada well from his days with the Toronto Raptors, Brazil’s Bruno Caboclo scored a team-high 19 points and 13 rebounds, to take the game’s MVP honours. After that performance on the world stage, perhaps he’s finally put the famous “two years away from being two years away” quote to rest with those Canadian fans who remember his draft night. With very different styles and pace, but with a place in the Quarter Finals on the line, Latvia vs Brazil is going to be a compelling game that few ‘experts’ saw coming.
