Greece won Dominica in a tought match before FIBA ​​World Cup 2019

Giannis Antetokounmpo is still impressive, but his Greek team is struggling to overcome the Dominican Republic in the friendly match ahead of FIBA ​​World Cup 2019.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was extremely impressed in the second friendly match of the Greek team in Suzhou, China. Facing the Dominican Republic, the star of the Milwaukee Bucks scored 26 points, achieving a 7/8 finish and successfully completing 12/14 free throws. Besides, he also has 4 rebounds and 3 blocks.

Even so, Greece has gone through a game not easy. The Dominican Republic in the first 3 innings showed a defensive play, ready to make mistakes. Besides, they stretched the team well and created many 3-point throws.

In the first 3 innings, the European team was constantly leading but often chased by opponents. Giannis Antetokounmpo and his teammates could not create a gap of up to 2 numbers before the team that won fourth place in Pan American Games.

However, Greece did not let Dominica have a chance to rise. They took advantage of physical and physical strength to include 1-1 the pitch, making it difficult for the team from Central America to deploy the attack in the second half of the match. In the end, Greece won 87-75. This is the second consecutive victory since they came to China.

On the European side, George Papagiannis scored 12 points, Giorgos Printezis got 11 points while Ioannis Papapetrou contributed 10 points and 5 rebounds. On the Dominican Republic, the most prominent players were Sadiel Rojas (16 points), Rigoberto Mendoza (13 points, 4 rebound) and Victor Liz (13 points).

Greece will compete for the last friendly match against Venezuela today (September 27) before entering the gold search campaign in China. Giannis Antetokounmpo and his teammates will join Group F with Montenegro, Brazil and New Zealand.
