Bulgaria and Spain play with a score of 17:28 in their first match of EuroBasket 2022 in Georgia.
Our boys started the match well, after the score was equal in the first 5-6 minutes. After that, however, the Spaniards stepped on the gas pedal a little and made a run of 11:0.
Two strong attacks followed, including two points from a free kick by Vezenkov. In those minutes, however, the dominance in the fight under the basket was entirely on the side of the Spaniards. At the end of the part, Vezenkov returned a triple.
