The team Australia is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Japan at 9:00 P.M. on August 8, 2017 in Zouk Mosbeh, Lebanon.
It will be a battle of height versus speed when Japan and the Boomers collide in the second game of 2017 FIBA Asia Cup.
Even without the 2006 NBA Draft number one overall pick Andrew Bogut and Milwaukee Bucks’ Matthew Dellavedova, team Australia is still the heavily favorite to win the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup trophy.
They will be led by their big man David Andersen who is a master in the low post.
Japan on the other hand will try to outwit their opponent using their familiar speed and agility.
Not to mention their long range shooting which made them popular in the entire Asia.
Makoto Hiejima is a player who knows how to create and make his points will be the go-to-guy for team Japan.
While Kosuke Takeuchi will try to stretch the Australian defense due to his perimeter shooting skills.
