Bosnia vs. Italy - Preview

Last match of the Acropolis Tournament tonight and one of the final tests before the European Basketball Championship will start at Slovenia. Italy seems to be in trouble having to play without Barniagni, Hackett, Galinari and for this match Datome the new player of Detroit Pistons that is suffering from an injury in his ankle. They have issues in both scoring and also defending and things don’t look so good at all considering their latest results in friendlies, a heavy defeat by Lithuania last night and more defeats by Slovenia, Poland, Israel and even Belgium demolished them with a 19 points margin!

Bosnia on the other hand started not so well in the preparation matches but they seem to have a quite decent team for their standards consisted of several “tall bodies” in the frontline and they have Teletovic and American Zac Wright as their leading scorers. In the match against Greece they lost quite easily (they won against them though last week) since Teletovic had bad shooting percentages but I expect them tonight to appear much better playing against a team that doesn’t have so much energy and limited options in their roster. The Bosnians play a bit of “run and gun” type of basketball and I think that Italians can’t follow that fast tempo and will face difficulties to guard them.

I don’t rate Italians as the favorites for this match moreover since it’s friendly and it won’t be so “tactical” so i am backing Bosnians to win it.

It’s a home/away option so overtime is included (without overtime Bosnia is priced at 2.25)
