It was 99-87 at Victoria’s Memorial Arena. The next game will be against the Bahamas, in Mar del Plata.
The road to the World Cup will not be easy, that is clear. And against Canada it was one more example. At the start of the second stage of the World Cup Qualifiers, Argentina fell to the local 99 to 87 and now he must change the chip for the next meeting, which will be at the Islas Malvinas Sports Center in Mar del Plata, next Monday, closing the double window.
Argentina suffered the power of the NBA men who wear the Canadian jersey. Kelly Olynyk (21 points and 7 rebounds), Dwight Powell (12), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (23), figure of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Thus, they added their seventh victory in a row.
With a record of 5 wins and 2 losses, Che García’s team finished fourth in Group E, by point difference. This Monday will be a fundamental match since if he wins he will be better positioned to wait for the next windows (now the AmeriCup is coming) which will only be in November, against the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas, as a visitor.
Because, in addition, by that time the coach will not be able to count on Facundo Campazzo, Nicolás Laprovittola, Gabriel Deck, Leandro Bolmaro and Luca Vildoza, who was not in this summons either.
Canada (99): Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 23, Nickeil Alexander-Walker 8, Melvin Ejim 5, Dwight Powell 12 and Kelly Olynyk 21 (FI); Cory Joseph 8, Kevin Pangos 5, Kassius Robertson 8, Thomas Scrubb 5 and Phil Scrubb 4. DT: Nick Nurse.
Argentina (87): Facundo Campazzo 17, Nicolás Laprovittola 30, Gabriel Deck 16, Leandro Bolmaro 5 and Marcos Delía (FI); Nicolás Brussino 0, Carlos Delfino 10, José Vildoza 5, Tomás Chapero 0, Tayavek Gallizzi 0 and Juan Pablo Vaulet 0. DT: Néstor García.
Partials: 28-21, 24-18 (52-39); 31-29 (83-66) and 16-19 (99-87)
