For San Antonio Spurs fans wanting to see more of 2011 NBA Draft pick Adam Hanga, Hanga and Hungary will have to take care of business in a must win game against Portugal today in the additional qualifying round for the 2011 Eurobasket.
In their first matchup last week, Portugal narrowly defeated Hungary 71 to 66. It was a close game throughout and even though Hanga struggled on offense, he still had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds when Hungary was down by three points. Hanga missed a hurried shot but there are some things which show a positive light for Hungary in the rematch.
For instance, Hungary shot 41% while Portugal shot 40% for the game. Portugal beat Hungary in the rebounding battle 33 to 29. Both teams were almost even in turnovers as Portugal had 13 and Hungary had 12 turnovers.
The major issue will be on Hungary’s defense where they allowed five players from Portugal to score in double figures. no comments
