The action on day 4 saw some of the main favourites booking their places in the next phase. All of the USA, Spain, Serbia and Slovenia recorded their second wins and progressed. There were also some very close battles between smaller teams with Ivory Coast and Iran producing a drama that the Africans edged 71-69.

The big tournament favourites USA cruised to an easy 109-81 win against Giannis-less Greece. The Americans won all 4 quarters and unlikely in their first match they looked much more composed this time around. There was no standing out performance just a solid team effort from everyone. Austin Reeves was the best American scorer with his 15 points off the bench. Edwards struggled though and despite his 13 points, he was only 4 from 11 from the field. It was a good team effort but nothing more and the judges are still out on this young American roster.

The defending champions Spain also went through their match vs Brazil unscratched. Strong 2nd and 4th quarters were enough for Spain to win 96-78. The Spanish shot 41.7% from distance in this match (10 out of 24). The best part of their display was their defending though with Spain finishing the game with 12 steals. Brazil struggled without their star playmaker Neto, who missed the game injured.

In other matches, another vintage Luka Doncic show – 34 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists – was more than enough for Slovenia to cruise to an 88-67 win vs Georgia. Serbia also won easily against Puerto Rico – 94-77. The Serbians distributed the scoring well and they were the only team on day 4 to have 3 different players scoring 15 points or more.

Will there be more records broken and more blowout wins on day 2? Well, we’ll have to watch and see.
