World Cup Day 10

As I understand it, there's no scenario where Brasil can make it out of Group K unless they beat the US right? If they lose they're 3-2. A Czech win makes them 4-1, but a Greece win over Czech and they're all 3-2, but Brasil can't go through on PD in any case. Is that right?

If Brazil beat USA Brazil goes through
If Czech Republic beats Greece, Brazil goes through as Greece would be 2W-3L
If Greece beat Czech Republic by more than 43, Brazil goes through on point difference in games among the 3 teams

And scratch the 43 point scenario. Your original statement was right. Brazil have to beat USA to het through. I need more sleep. Sigh

In a 3-way tie between Brazil, Czech and Greece at 3-2, it would look something like this:

Brazil 1-1, -21
Czech 1-1, +22 (with tonight's 'loss' to be factored in)
Greece 1-1, -1 (with tonight's 'win' to be factored in)

So no, Brazil can't win that tie-break. If they win and the Czech's win, putting both into a 3-way tie with the USA on 4-1, it would look like:

USA 1-1, +21 (with tonight's 'loss' to be factored in)
Czech 1-1, +1
Brazil 1-1, -22 (with tonight's 'win' to be factored in)

So doing some quick maths, I'd say Brazil needs to beat the USA by 22 points to be top 2 in that tie-breaker. Realistically, Brazil need to beat the USA and hope Greece beats the Czechs for the Brazilians to go through.

Thanks guys. Seems unlikely. That loss against Czechia really hurt them.

Greece vs Czech finely poised. Greece need to make a run

So Greece win by 7. That wasn't enough for them, but where does this leave Brazil?

Yes Greece gone.

Brazil need to win over USA by 22 to boot Czech out.

No I think Brazil just need to win to go through (as they and the US will be 4-1, Czechs and Greece 3-2) and they'll go through as the first seed too as they'll have the head-to-head over the US.

Wow. Quite the pressure on Giannis. Everyone had huge expectations.

Epic fourth quarter. Cedi Osman on one end and Delaney going nuts on the rim at the other.

USA beat Turkey by one. NZL beat Turkey by one. Ergo NBL = USA.

NBL is no cup cake league, Australia and New Zealand prove it.

"Wow. Quite the pressure on Giannis. Everyone had huge expectations."

To be honest, they did not look like a Top 8 quality team in this tournament.

I know this is what everyone has been banging on about, and I'm just Glad Australia completely bypassed the need for such shenanigans,
but the +/- rule seems to be whacked.

Both Greece and Czechs come in on 2 wins.
Greece beats the Czechs, but Czechs advance?
Because Brazil lost their bottle?

Surely with two teams equal, their h2h should prevail?

Why would you just ignore the results of one of the teams in the three-way tie?

Great performance in this tournament from NZ. Is there any chance we can get some of their defense and offensive rebounding?

D2.0, there were 3 teams equal, not two, so the tie-breaker goes:

1) Win-loss in the games played between the three teams:

Czech 1-1
Greece 1-1
Brazil 1-1

2) With that tied, it comes to points differential in the games between those teams:

Czech +15 (beat Bra by 22, lost to Gre by 7)
Greece +6 (lost to Bra by 1, beat Czech by 7)
Brazil -21 (lost to Czech by 22, beat Gre by 1)
