Probably one of the worst first halfs I've ever seen, and I've been watching the Israeli league for quite a long time so there's a tough competition.
The 2nd half was much better for both teams, we lost it for a stupid foul of Pnini and then an amazing and-one by a Greek player that I couldn't recognize
But once again, just like last game, because of all the players that will only join later this is more of a tournament to judge the other players, to see where the rotation players are standing and who's looking best.
Nissim was the only one who did well in the first half and really got himself another chance, Kadir and Naimi who had awful first half got much better and lead Israel in the 2nd.
Eliyahu and Pnini were again the best in the team
, but they also were far from their best
, both with disappointing shooting percentage but both took right shots that would usually go in so I'm not disappointed of them, but I just hope Pnini would grow up cuz this kind of foul in the Eurobasket and we lose a game and probably get back home earlier then expected, so he really needs to get rid of this child he still has in him.
Ohayon Roth and Mekel were nothing special and all have to step up and get much more confidence, if next game looks the same then maybe Naimi got his chance back and it's gonna be a big fight for the places in the final 12-man roster.
Green was once again SH*T, he picked early fouls, when he was on court he took the wrong shots for him and didn't contribue in the rebounding area as much as he's expected to. If he won't step up, we'll see Israel playing with Blu and Eliyahu as 5 most of the time and run a lot
