Iran vs Czech Republic Team Preview
Iran basketball team will be featuring Hamed Haddadi, the 7’2” player. His large frame allows him to finish over most of the Centers in the world. He can give the Czech Republic fits with his inside play and either Jan Vesely or Patrick Auda will have to play a physical brand of basketball against this talented player. However, the 3-pyt shooting for Iran is also a on an advantage side. They may not be the fan favorite, but will give Czech a tough fight.
Czech Republic are terrific squads, however, Czech Republic has more experience and more depth while they have done a great job against higher ranking teams compared to Iran. It will be vital for Iran to cull the inside-outside game of the Czech Republic and not find it easy to deal with the combination of speed and agility. However, the rebounding battle will be an interesting one in the game and it will be interesting to see which team comes out on top in that department with the Czech Republic having a slight edge.
