FIBA Basketball World Cup: We’re in the semifinals – now against the USA | Sports

Germany. Situations. In the semi-finals. the. world Cup!

Our giant team beat Latvia in the quarterfinals with a score of 81:79. The credit goes mainly to Franz Wagner (16 points) and Andreas Obst (13). But they are having a really hard time.

In front of 7,584 spectatorsIt’s the new thriller from Manila. Latvian outsiders are causing more problems than expected for Gordon Herbert’s team (64 years old).

He takes advantage of the fact that things are not going well for Dennis Schroeder (29). Even the German captain’s shoe trick failed. But it helps the team. And we have another NBA star…

The good news before the match: Franz Wagner (22 years old) can finally play again!

The Orlando Magic’s NBA player injured his ankle in the opening game against Japan and was only able to see the next four games.

He’s back now. But that’s all good news for now – the German giants (with Wagner on the bench) missed the start of the game entirely. Sometimes they are ten points behind. Schroder missed all six of his shots in the first quarter. Wagner (who came on after four minutes and 33 seconds) scored his only attempt.

At the end of the quarter, the score was 13:16.

In the second quarter, Moritz, Franz’s brother, gave the German giants the lead for the first time with a dunk goal – 17:16.

Dennis Schröder comes off the bench and tries on gold boots instead of white boots as at the beginning. But it doesn’t work for him.

So with Johannes Thiemann. The Alba professional kept Germany close to Latvia with six points in a short time.

The first half is 36:34. Schroder has more fouls (two) and more pairs of shoes (two) than points (zero).

The bench players around Thimane and Maudu Lu contributed 23 points, while the Latvian players contributed only two points.

The second half started very poorly – Davis Bertans put Latvia back in the lead with a four-point game (three-point shot with a foul and an errant free throw).

But now Dennis Schroeder is participating for the first time! His thirteenth (!) attempt at throwing finally found its target. The first points after 2 minutes and 30 seconds in the third quarter.

After his second successful shot (106 seconds left in the quarter), he ran to the bench and was celebrated by his teammates and supervisors during the next timeout. Give him courage.

After the third quarter, Germany led 62:59. Schroder’s numbers are terrible: two of 17 shots from the field, four points. In addition to three errors.

In the final section, Schroder sat out for more than four minutes. Without him, Germany moved away to 14 points (74:60). Then the NBA star returns – and wants to force it. does not work. Latvia is within five points (74:69).

To make matters worse, he also received a technical foul with 133 seconds left in the game. The judges want to recognize the “flop” (=swallow).

In the end, the Germans barely managed to win. With real luck! A three-pointer from Davis Bertans seconds before the final siren sounded narrowly missed its target…
