In a late thriller in Shenzhen, the Dominican Republic stunned Germany (68-70) and came one step away from advancing to the second round.
The game was decided in the final seconds, with Danilo Barthel missing the game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer.
Victor Liz and Eloy Vargas led the winners in scoring, with 17 and 16 points, respectively. On the other hand, Dennis Schroder had a game-high 20 points for the losing squad.
Germany now is on the brink of elimination (0-2), whereas the Dominican Republic (2-0) will qualify, if France defeats Jordan later today.
Don’t forget to get NordVPN’s special deal
If you’re heading to China for the World Cup, don’t forget that China blocks all the most popular websites and social media, so no Facebook for you. Unless you grab a VPN that is.
With a VPN service you can access the content you’re used to like Google, Instagram and so on. Even if you’re not there physically, you’ll probably want to stream FIBA World CUP 2019 matches.
A VPN helps to do so securely, not to mention you’d be able to do so from any country, with no geographical restrictions to streaming content.
