EuroBasket 2015: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greece tip off action NOW!

New, comments

And so it begins.

After weeks of exhibitions, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Greek national team tip off EuroBasket group play Saturday against Macedonia at 10:50 CT. You can watch live on ESPN3.com and the WatchESPN app.

They figure to get their stiffest test in Group C on Sunday at 2 pm CT against Croatia before an off-day Monday and then three games in as many days starting on Tuesday. Here's their schedule (all times central):

9/5 vs. Macedonia 11 am

9/6 vs. Croatia 2 pm

9/8 vs. Georgia 11 am

9/9 vs. Slovenia 8 am

9/10 vs. Netherlands 2 pm

UPDATE: Giannis scored five points (2/4 fg, 1/2 ft) with one rebound and a block in the first half as Greece lead 38-31 at the intermission. He opened the game with a dunk after a back cut from the corner, then filled the lane for a huge dunk after a Nick Calathes steal.
