Greece’s EuroBasket 2022 dream comes to an end

·

Greece has been defeated 107-96 by Germany today in their EuroBasket 2022 quarter-final clash in Berlin, bringing the Greek national team’s championship dream and unbeaten run to an end.

Despite being picked as one of the tournament’s favourites, Greece was overcome by home team underdog, Germany, who will now be advancing to their first semi-finals at FIBA EuroBasket since 2005.

Germany came out firing, establishing an early 22-11 cushion but through Giannis Antetokounmpo, the tides began to turn for Greece who, at halftime, held a 61-57 advantage.

In his 30 minutes of play, Antetokounmpo finished the game with 31 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals and 5 turnovers.

However, momentum completely swung back in favour of the hosts in the third, with a pivotal 20-1 run from Germany allowing them to take back total control. There was no letting up from that point on.

Greece departs EuroBasket 2022 having made six consecutive wins prior to this morning’s loss.
