Will Lithuania end the Azzurri’s dream of a back-to-back OQT win?

The FIBA OQT in San Juan has delivered an appetizing Semi-Final European derby between Lithuania and Italy.

The Green Death have looked extremely dominant, winning games in back-to-back days against Mexico and Côte d'Ivoire.

On the other hand, the Azzurri stumbled against hosts Puerto Rico in front of a roaring 12,519 crowd. Italy fell off in the 2nd half while Jose Alvarado got the crowd into the game and took control of the lead.

Italy will need answers, especially defending the paint, as Marius Grigonis and Domantas Sabonis approach. Any attempt to play small-ball could backfire against Lithuania’s strong frontcourt.

Italy shot dreadfully from behind the ark on Thursday night (26.7%) and will have to hope their shooters are in much better form if they want to stand a chance against The Other Dream Team.
