How both the teams performed in China?
The Dominican Republic came through a tricky group following two wins from three games at the first round stage.
Their only loss came against France, which in fact, was one of the most one-sided games in the current World Cup.
The World No-3 side flexed their muscles and handed out a grave lesson to the Dominican players, beating the World No-17 side at Shenzhen Bay Sports Center in Game-2.
No Dominican player, barring Victor Liz who ended with a modest 12 points, could manage a score in the double digits.
But Orlando Antigua's team had already won two games by the time they came against France and had already secured a place in the second round.
That said, Australia's 82-76 win over them means, this is a must-win game for the Dominican team.
Lithuania were placed in Group H, alongside Australia, Canada, and Senegal, which was also the group of Death at this World Cup.
The World No-6 opened their campaign with a straightforward 101-47 win over Senegal while seeing off the depleted Canadians proved to be a rather easy assignment as Jonas Kazlauskas' men beat the Nick Nurse's men 92-69 in Game-2.
Australia managed to crack their defense in Game-3, winning the match 87-82.
Like the Dominican Republic, Lithuania also comes into this game on the back of a defeat in the first game in the second round stage.
