Spain began their defence of the Eurobasket crown with a unconvincing 83-79 victory over Poland in Panevezys. Pau Gasol led the Spanish with 29 points with Juan Carlos Navarro backing him up with 23 in a game where Spain didn’t get out of first gear and still came away with the victory. The big story for the holders is how little their point guards influenced the tie. With Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon and Sergio Llull all failing to register a single point. Despite Spain leading 61-52 after three, and looking comfortable. Poland, with nothing to lose, went all out and attacked the glum Eurobasket holders. They dragged it to just two points, thanks to foul shots from Thomas Kelati with a minute to play (80-78), but a pair of free-throws from Navarro and one from Pau settled the tie and condemned Poland to defeat.

I've always said that I'm very happy playing with Real Madrid, that I want to stay next year and a couple more, that I want to win titles with Madrid.

Sergio Llull, a second-tier Spanish player behind the likes of Navarro, Rudy Fernandez, Gasol and Ricky Rubio, was also key with most of his nine points coming in the fourth quarter when Spain pulled away for the win. Llull seemed to be suggesting, as Rautins may have been suggesting, that once the games hit the knockout stage, Spain knows what to do. "I don't think the team ever lost its confidence," Llull said of the 3-2 record in the preliminaries. "But the game today was important and we had to concentrate. France and Lithuania were difficult games. They are both very good teams and we started a little bit nervous. But now we start from zero and we have to grow up." Toronto Sun
