Shved inspires Russia to Serbia EuroBasket semi

14 September 2017 02:04

Aleksei Shved enjoyed an inspired second half as Russia fought back to defeat Greece and book a EuroBasket semi-final with Serbia, who overcame Italy in the last eight.

Russia made a slow start to their showdown with Greece in Istanbul on Wednesday and trailed by six points at half-time.

But former Houston Rockets and New York Knicks guard Shved found his range in the final two quarters, scoring 22 of his 26 points in the second half – including seven during an 11-2 run in the third – as Russia clinched a 74-69 victory.

Greece had knocked out Lithuania, losing finalists at the past two EuroBaskets, in the previous round but fell short on this occasion against a Russia side that are now into the last four for the first since 2011.
