After a sound defeat to the Russians the Iranians came out swinging and built an early 14-6 lead. However, after a timeout, a couple of defensive stops, and 2 3-pointers the favored Lithuanians are right back in it. The best part? Without announcers I can hear the Lithuanian fans chanting just like Henry Abbott talked about on TrueHoop today. Right now Iran is up 18-12 and the Iranian Lithuanian fans are not in the least bit fazed.
UPDATE: After outscoring Iran 31-14 in the second quarter Lithuania is up 46-34 at the half. Strangely the stadium kicked off the half with the song, minus the Lil Penny voice over, from the following commercial playing over the loud speakers:
