  • Spain beats Finland, 100-90: Willy Hernangomez scored 27 for the Spanish and Lauri Markkanen scored 28 points for the Finns. However, Spain pulled through in the final moments to pull off a come from behind victory.
  • Germany beats Greece, 107-96: Given that Germany doesn’t have any NBA superstars like Greece, the result was a surprise. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 31 points for Greece, but was ejected lated in the game. For Germany, Dennis Schroder scored 26 points.
