Australia vs Germany Basketball
Australia and Germany will meet in a basketball meeting at the Saitama Super Arena on Saturday morning for the 2020 Olympic Games. Australia are 2-0 in these games with wins against Nigeria and Italy. Germany has just won a victory over Nigeria and needs a win to improve its chances of promotion.
Australia has a total of seven games winning streak and has a chance to win Group B. In an effort to win, Australia shot 45.7 percent out of the field and 35.5 percent out of three. Jock Landale led Australia with 18 points and seven rebounds while Patty Mills had 16 points and six rebounds. Nicholas Kay was the third double-digit scorer and Aron Baynes took seven rebounds. Defensively, Australia allowed 50 percent shots from the field and 32 percent shots from three. Australia celebrates a competitive win over the Italians, a win that should give even more confidence. While we knew Australia had a chance of a medal, it can be argued that the Australians were the most impressive team to date.
Germany sits 1-1 after losing to Italy and defeating Nigeria. In the winning streak, Germany shot 54 percent out of the field and 46.2 percent out of three. Johannes Voigtmann led Germany with 19 points and seven rebounds, while Moritz Wagner had 17 points and three rebounds. Danilo Barthel was the third double-digit scorer and Maodo Lo grabbed two rebounds. Defensively, Germany allowed 50.7 percent shots from the field and 47.2 percent three shots. Germany played a fair game for the last time and now has to give itself the kick because of the collapse in the fourth quarter against Italy. Germany has not reached the knockout round of the Olympic Games since 1992.
