to a stunning comeback, it’s Russia, not the Spanish, who won Group B
and earned the right to avoid the Americans until the final.

Timofey
Mozgov made the tiebreaking dunk with 18 seconds left, Vitaliy Fridzon
scored 24 points and unbeaten Russia erased an 18-point deficit to pull
out a 77-74 victory on Saturday.

“We won the group today,” Russia
coach David Blatt said. “It’s a good feeling. I’d hoped that we would
finish in one of the top three spots, to be honest with you, just so
that we could avoid the Americans team in the quarters.”
