The Team Spain is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Team Argentina at 8:00 P.M. on September 15, 2019 live from the Wukesong Arena, Beijing, China.
Both the Spaniard and the Argentinian squads are looking to win the gold medal. Yet, only one team will be granted while the other will finish as the second-best in this year’s FIBA World Cup and will also be rewarded with the silver medal.
Team Spain ended the gold medal chase of team Australia after their exciting semi-final match in Beijing last Friday.
Their game was like a tug-of-war as both squads refused to be defeated. However, at the final buzzer of the second overtime, team Spain will advance to the Finals round.
Marc Gasol will play his second straight basketball championship match in 2019. The last time he was in this similar biggest stage was in the 2019 NBA Finals as a member of the Toronto Raptors.
For team Argentina on the other hand, they had no problem disposing of team France in their semis clash.
The Argentinians sailed along with the stellar performance of their veteran Luis Scola. The 39-year-old proved that age is only a number as he muscled his way and registered 28 points and 13 rebounds.
Scola’s active play inside the paint played a major role in their success as he helped clamped down the French bigs like Rudy Gobert.
