Spain came out doing what they do feeding Pau as Italy used a balanced attack led by Gallinari and 2006 #1 overall Pick Andres Bargnani. Spain kept that same momentum going in the 2nd heading to the break leading 45-42.
Spain quickly after the break led 47-42 and the Italians went on a 15-0 run led by Sacramento Kings Sharpshooter Marco Belinelli. Marco hits 11 of the 15 including three Money Balls and Team Italy was up 57-47. That led to a 73-63 lead after three as Team Italy has Team Spain on the ropes.
In the 4th Spain just could not get any stops and 75-68 early in the 4th would be the close as they get in this one as Italy folds Spain 105-98. Pau led all scorers with 34 points grabbing ten boards. His Bulls teammate Nikola Mirotic was the only other Spain player in double figures with 13.
Italy was led by Nuggets Star SF Gallinari's 29 points and eight boards with six helpers. Belinelli added 27 and seven helpers with Bargnani adding 18 as Team Italy had all five starters in double figures.
