The Spanish National Team started their duties at EuroBasket 2022 in an ideal way. Scariolo’s players beat Bulgaria of the formidable Sasha Vezenkov (26 points, 11 rebounds) 114-87, in the game that marked the start of the tournament. The two teams compete in the first group held in Tbilisi, Georgia, with the Spaniards being the favorites to win from the start and confirming it in the match.

With Sasha Vezenkov off the pace in the first minutes of the game, Spain imposed its pace early on, even reaching 19 points, while also dominating the rebounds. Kostov and Stoilov helped a lot, while Vezenkov gradually raised his performance. Rudy Fernandez was the key player for the Spaniards and with three pointers of his own he was able to bring the difference to safe levels, a difference that was maintained thanks to perimeter shots for the +22 of the half.

And in the second half the picture did not change, Spain did not drop their pace despite the safe difference they had built and did not allow the opposition team to claim anything. The leading scorer for the Spaniards was Lorenzo Brown with 17 points, with the Hernangomet brothers being equally efficient and reliable (16 points for Willy and 13 for Juancho).

For Bulgaria, in addition to Vezenkov, Kostov was also positive with 16 points.
