Puerto Rico

In the first game against Iran Puerto Rico have shown one of the greatest comebacks as they were trailing by 17 points in 4th quarter, but managed to win by scoring game-winner 81:83. Huertas has made an incredible performance by scoring 32 points and he scored game-winner. Browne, Mojica and Pineiro scored combined 26 points.

Spain

The first round didn’t start to Spain as planned, for the first 2 quarters they looked nothing like is expected, however after half time things started to get better and they won against Tunisia 101:62. Rubio, Llull, Hernangomez scored combined 46 points. Of course Spain is one of the title contenders, so their goal is only the 1st place in the group, however such performances as first half against Tunisia doesn’t look promising. But in the end they managed to win, and second round should be a little more difficult, however Spain are absolute favorites and should prove everyone why they are one of the best teams in this competition.
