Quarterfinals[edit]

In spite of an undefeated preliminary round, the Spaniards were ousted by the "Dream Team" to the jeers of the crowd assembled in the arena and to the chagrin of Spanish head coach Mario Pesquera.

Unlike their Spanish counterparts, however, the Lithuanians had an easy time disposing of the Del Harris-led Chinese squad.

Argentina, led by 13 points from both Manu Ginóbili and Fabricio Oberto, disposed of the home squad, led by the 12 points from Nikolaos Chatzivrettas.
