Tokyo 2020: D’Tigers lose second Olympic game to Germany

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Nigeria’s D’Tigers have narrowly lost by 92-99  points their second match in the Tokyo Olympics against Germany on Wednesday .

It was their second loss after Australia.

Nigeria started against Germany brilliantly as Miami Heat Point guard Gabe Vincent secured the first basket of the game.

Jordan Nwora, who plays for Milwaukee Bucks registered 33 points for D’Tigers, with 7 rebounds and three assists.

The team had most of their points in the match via three pointers as the game ended tied 50-50 in the second quarter.

The third quarter also ended tied (74-74).

Although D’Tigers made frantic effort in the fourth quarter to get a win, Germany were dominant and took the game beyond Nigeria.

Nigeria at some point in the game led with as much as twelve points but didn’t do enough defensively, giving away fouls the Germans easily converted from the free throw line.

The win marks as the first Olympic win for Germany’s basketball team who lost previously to Italy.

Nigeria will play their last game against Italy on Saturday, hoping to win and if lucky qualify for the next round.
