Serbia, who surprised with a second-place finish at the 2014 FIBA World Cup, has continued that momentum at EuroBasket, winning all seven of their games by an average margin of 15.1 points. An efficient offensive juggernaut, they are averaging a tournament-best 121.5 points per 100 possessions. Euroleague MVP and Minnesota Timberwolves signing Nemanja Bjelica has been one of the best players of the tournament, while veteran point guard Milos Teodosic is the engine that makes the offense run, averaging 8.3 assists per contest.
Lithuania, which has gone 6-1 with a loss to Belgium, will counter with Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas. The seven-footer had 29 and 15 against Italy in the quarterfinals, and he figures to be an extremely tough cover for Miroslav Raduljica and Ognjen Kuzmic.
With a spot in the 2016 Rio Olympics on the line, this one, just like the first semifinal, should be a scintillating battle.
