TZ Note: Many thanks to RikSmits for recapping Israel's games. There are two more this week.
Omri opened sluggishly, not contesting his man on a three, and then turning the ball over on an inbounds pass.
On offense, he established deep position with his back to the basket and made a strong move, drawing the shooting foul. His first field goal was also from a move with his back to the basket. He scored two more from the line, and then went to the bench near the end of the first quarter, with 5 points and two rebounds.
Omri returned to the game with 3 minutes left in the second quarter. Israel turned a deficit into a 20 point lead without him. He scored a dunk off an behind the back pass. And another dunk on a fastbreak to end the half with 9 points.
Omri opened the third with a turnover, then got a nice defensive rebound in traffic. He was quiet, until he drew a shooting foul on an agressive move to the hoop.
4th quarter, garbage time in a rout. Casspi with 12 points, 4 rebs, 1 assist and 3 TO's.
