Argentina vs Japan basketball match forecast

There are two fights in men's basketball in Tokyo on the 1st of August. We look at the forecast for the duel between Argentina and Japan.

Argentina men's national basketball team

A repeat of the 2019 World Cup Final took place this week. As part of the Olympic tournament in Tokyo, the Argentine national team did not take revenge on the Spanish national team for the defeat two years ago. It is worth noting that this time the handicap between Europeans and South Americans was halved and amounted to ten points.

The first was enough only for the starting quarter in the duel of the vice-champions and the champions of the planet. Nicholas Laprovittola scored 27 points and was far ahead of his teammates in terms of performance. The hosts are in third position in Group C.
