Venezuela Beats Ivory Coast with a Great Offensive Performance from the Start
The beginning of the encounter was an exchange of points with inaccuracies, then Venezuela was taking the rhythm with its identity and began to take advantage having an excellent offensive performance, while Ivory Coast stagnated and showed its lack of defense, ends the first quarter winning Venezuela by 9 digits. Source In the second quarter Venezuela continued taking confidence Heissler Guillent impelled Venezuela of implacable form with shots from the perimeter increasing its balance in the scoreboard, the cuts and picks also worked for the South American team, finishes the first time 49 - 32 up Venezuela. Source Second Half Venezuela continued to set the tone but would come a slight reaction from Ivory Coast that deducted some points on the scoreboard, but cooled its actions from the immediate response of Venezuela in the offensive, although the partial was equal, ends the fourth with Venezuela up on the scoreboard. Source With the last period to play confidence was reflected in the Venezuelan team doing an excellent offensive work, but Ivory Coast began to press to decrease the advantage and score, in these instances the scoreboard remained low by the errors caused by the defense, Venezuela resorted to its defense although the partial of the fourth was won by Ivory Coast by just 1 possession, but Venezuela still dominated the game by the advantage it enjoyed in the scoreboard, ends the game with a great victory for Venezuela over Ivory Coast 87 - 71. Source Details and Personal Analysis Venezuela had to face this encounter with much seriousness and had to impose its game, at first there were some imprecisions then some exchanges of points, but then Venezuela began to make efficient use of its offensive and began to throw very well of field, deciphering the low defensive intensity of Ivory Coast what gave them advantage of 9 digits in the beginning. In the second period the selection of Venezuela was taking more confidence in their game and Heissler Guillent the base of the South American nation took control of the game and the offensive with effective and relentless shots from the perimeter that did a lot of damage to the African team, was decisive considerably increasing the advantage, making a great second quarter the team of Venezuela. In the second half Ivory Coast increased the defense and made some mistakes to Venezuela through defensive pressure, but Venezuela maintained its character and identity and restored their game, the African team discounted a few points but the advantage of Venezuela was still considerable although Ivory Coast equaled the partial of the fourth. At the end of the game there were some errors due to increased defense by both teams and the offensive was lower but Venezuela maintained its rhythm of play by achieving a good closing with a lower score, although the South American team was still fed from the perimeter this time with Jhornan Zamora who also came fine from that area like Guillent, it was only a matter of diluting the minutes to print the excellent victory of Venezuela against Côte d'Ivoire.

China Earns First FIBA World Cup Victory in 9 Years
The best result for the Chinese men's national basketball team occurred in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The best Chinese basketball player ever, the freak of nature Yao Ming, led the team to the knockout rounds, where they promptly lost to Lithuania, 94-68. That was Yao's last game suiting up for the national team. China has only won one single game at the elite level of international basketball - either in the Olympics or the FIBA World Cup - since Yao's retirement. That victory was achieved way back in the 2010 FIBA World Championship (they didn't call it the World Cup back then) held in Turkey. In that contest, China defeated the Ivory Coast team, 83-73. So hopes were high when the China men's team opened up this year's FIBA World Cup against Ivory Coast in Beijing. Those hopes just came to fruition in a 70-55 win to satisfy a whole nation of hungry basketball fans. I watched the game on Tencent Sports. There were 20 million people watching that stream and likely hundreds of millions watching the CCTV-5 feed on the national sports TV channel. China loves its basketball. With some monster games from their three best players, China easily handled this one pulling away with conviction in the 2nd half. Guo Ailun, the first Jordan Brand talent in Asia and by far the best player on the team, had a monster game of 17 points, 9 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals while shooting 50% from the floor. Yi Jianlian, Yao's heir apparent who never quite lived up to the hype but ended up having a stellar domestic career (5 championships, 4 MVPs) once he gave up on his NBA dream, also played well netting 19 points and 8 boards. His veteran leadership really allowed the team to pull away in the 4th quarter. Zhou Qi, who had a couple cups of coffee with the Houston Rockets a few years ago, looked pretty good as well, granted it was against one of the few teams in this World Cup that does not field any NBA talent. He earned 12 points, 6 rebounds, a steal and 2 pretty impressive blocks. Plus, this emphatic dunk clinched the game. It will be quite exciting for China to get to see this much quality basketball in prime time for 2 weeks straight. I think the world is going to be astounded by the viewership of this World Cup. Next up for China is Poland, who won their opener today against Venezuela 80-69, in two days on September 2 also in Beijing. Poland should be a much tougher opponent for them, but also it is another winnable game especially with home court advantage and the confidence gained from this game.
