Casspi Scores 20 With 10 Rebounds, 3 Assists in Loss to Italy

8

Omri tried to look for his teammates at the opening of the game. He went high for a couple of rebounds in traffic. He scored 5 points, on a 3-pointer and a putback. In the second quarter, he opened with a great spin move on the baseline, getting the basket and-one. A few moments later, he got the ball inside, back to the basket, and also got the and-one. The Italian team tightened their defense on Omri after that, and he didn't do much after that, except drawing some fouls. Israel started the second half on their back feet. Casspi did draw some fouls and made a tough shot off the glass, and grabbed some more rebounds, but was not a big factor. Omri started the 4th quarter well, with good defense and an assist. Then he fumbled a ball under the basket, took an ill-advised step-back 3. Later he drew a foul going aggressive to the hoop, making both free throws. With less than a minute to go in a tight game, he drew another foul under the basket and made both from the line. In the end, they lost by five (81-76) Omri was a mixed bag on defense, working hard, but also losing focus and/or making the wrong decisions at moments. Of course, getting double figures on the boards isn't bad. I forgot to mention that JT came to Israel and attended the game. Highlights here.
