Good effort by Greece 
Lost to France 95-87 
Both times Greece cut the deficit to 6 and France just responds with 3s, kills off their momentum.

So embarrassing, Finland is beating Greece up so badly it's laughable. Regardless Giannis plays or not, their basketball team is hot garbage. The dark ages is here.

Yep. FT 77-89. The Poland game is crucial now. But then what? #1 of another group awaites....

Media are talking about the worst Ethniki of the last 20 years.

Russia beat Croatia 101-78
I am thinking that Russia will come into the quarterfinals thinking to themselves that they can beat Greece easily after they poured 100+ points. Sure, we remember when Greece did that against USA and in the finals, Spain shut them down to 47 points. I am going to believe that Greece will pull off another surprising upset.

Russia's head coach made a comment that is purely arrogant. 
He said ahead of the Greece - Russia game that we are not CSKA and that they don't have Spanoulis. OK, he didn''t mention Giannis on the team either? 

I hope Greece smash Russia real good.

If you don't make your free throws, you cannot win! If you continue to shoot 3s and keep missing them down the stretch when your only behind by 2, you cannot win! Greece basically threw this game away! They did this 2 years ago vs. Spain, and now this! Greece blew a couple of double digit leads (13 and 11), that is not how you play basketball!!!

Very true. We controlled most of the game, but we screwed everything up at the end. When we had those double digit leads we should have ended it there. Instead we let them back into the game with poor free throws and poor choice of shots. Too bad. We could have easily advanced.

For those interested how the Eurobasket 2017 ended. Slovenia won the trophy by beating Serbia with 93-85, thanks to a very good second quarter.

Greece ended on the 8th place.
