Olympic Basketball: Sunday August 7, 2016
Odds: Spain -9
Game Time: 6pm EST
Croatia and Spain meet Sunday in their opening match of the Rio Olympic Games.
This is only the 2nd time Croatia has qualified for the Olympics since 2000. Croatia has two true NBA players on its roster which are Orlando Magic player Mario Hezonja and the Brooklyn Nets Bojan Bogdanović. Dario Saric, also on Croatia, is on the 76ers roster but spent the last two years playing for the Anadolu Efes.
Croatia has some outside shooting threats and could be dangerous if guys get hot. Roko Ukic will captain the team and has big game experience that will help this young, energetic team.
Spain has won back-to-back Olympic silver medals and is easily once again the biggest threat to the United States.
Spain is looking sharp and has NBA talent such as Pau Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon and Nikola Mirotic. Rudy Fernandez and Juan Carlos Navarro can also takeover a game from beyond the arc.
Spain’s captain is Felipe Reyes who is a two time Spanish League MVP.
This is a tough opening match for Croatia and the -9 point spread ripe
