It might not have been the prettiest performance for the Aussies but they got the job done over Nigeria in their opener. 

Patty Mills scored 25 points and dished out six assists to lead the Boomers to an 84-67 win over the African champions last Sunday. Nick Kay added 11 points off the bench while Joe Ingles and Dante Exum chipped in 11 apiece.

The Italians are also coming off a win in their first game, getting by Germany by 10 points. Simone Fontecchio had 20 points to lead Italy to a 92-82 victory. Four other Italians scored in double figures.

Verdict

To win this one Australia will need to shoot a lot better than they did against the Nigerians but with Patty Mills leading the way, I’ll back them to win a high scoring contest.
