Spain clinched their second victory at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 by prevailing over Brazil in Group G, securing a spot in the Second Round.
This extended Spain’s winning streak to seven consecutive wins against Brazil in international contests, achieved through their impressive depth and poised gameplay. The outcome was a 96-78 victory and progression to the Second Round.
Juan Nunez displayed his exceptional skills during the match, orchestrating Spain’s offense with 5 assists, 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals.
His versatile performance allayed concerns about Spain’s point guard situation, particularly with the absence of 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup MVP Ricky Rubio.
“I think it was important how we started in the second half,” Nunez said. “We rebounded better and were more physical. We ran more, and that gave us more improved play.”
