How the teams fared in the first two games?
The Carribean team beat Iran 83-81 in a closely fought game-1 to open their account with a win at the World Cup.
While the next game was against the mighty Spanish team. The result went right towards the way it was expected to traverse before the start of the match. But losing is one thing while giving the fight to the relatively stronger opponent, showing resistance and going toe to toe with the more esteemed players, is a sign of the team’s yet untapped potential.
Puerto Rico may have lost the game 63-73 to Spain, but Eddie Casiano’s men earned a lot of praise for their unrelenting display.
Tunisia infused life into their campaign with a much-needed 79-67 win over Iran in the last game. With 3 points, they are level on points with Puerto Rico heading into the next game.

David Huertas: Puerto Rico find themselves on the cusp of the knockout qualification all because of David Huertas’ incredible fourth quarter against Iran. The 32-year-old Guard scored a game-high 32 points, including a clutch 3-pointer which leveled the score 78-78, with just 45 seconds to go.
While against Spain, he was well-marked and couldn’t flex his muscles. Expect him to be on the top against Tunisia.
