Basketball team downs Brits

Take note – story published 6 years ago

Latvia's team at the Eurobasket 2017 Championships racked up a second win in three matches September 4.

The Great Britain team proved harder to crack than some commentators predicted before the game, and wound up losing by just 5 points 97:92, not least because of another powerful performance from NBA star Kristaps Porziņģis who scored 28 points.

But the way the unfancied British team repeatedly refused to buckle should provide team Latvia with a useful wake-up call as they head into their final two group matches in Istanbul against Russia on Tuesday and hosts Turkey on Thursday, with both games likely to be tough.
