How both the teams fared in the first stage?
Puerto Rico’s only loss in the first-round game against Spain, a 63-73 defeat in Game-2.
It was neither unexpected nor a negative result considering the gulf between the two teams in Basketball terms.
The world no-16 team won the other two games against Iran and Tunisia respectively and booked a place in the 2nd round.
But the real battle starts now for the Carribean Islan team, and Eddie Casiano’s men learned it the hard way as Serbia thrashed them 90-47 in the first game in the 2nd round.
Italy fell down to Spain 60-67 in their first game in the 2nd round. It was their second loss in four games at the 2019 FIBA World Cup with the other one coming against Serbia.
