Like today 15 years ago (24/9/2005) Dimitris Diamantidis and the National Team of Greece were writing history with an epic upset over France in the Eurobasket of Serbia and the three-point “knife” of “3D”!

It was the day that Vassilis Skountis’s chant, “Swamp my boy”, went down in history and Diamantidis was once again the last minute man for the National Team against the “tricolors”.

The game was a derby. The French had the lead for most of the match and about a minute before the end of the semifinal they won 60-53, but they did not count on the Greek soul.

Panagiotis Giannakis’ team with an epic effort reached a distance of two points about 11 seconds before the final of the match. In the last attack, Zisis was the one who took over the creation and at the right moment took out the unmarked Diamantidis, who just put it, made it 67-66 and we qualified for the final against Germany!

Greece (Giannakis): Spanoulis, Diamantidis 7 (1), Papaloukas 10, Chatzivrettas 3, Zisis 11, Kakiouzis 3 (1), Vasilopoulos, Tsartsaris, Fotsis 4, Dikoudis 14, Papadopoulos 15, Bourousis.

France (Bergeon): Parker 20 (2), Fotou, Rigondo 6, Diao 14 (2), F. Pietrous 8, Diara, Tzifa, M. Pietrous 6 (2), Zelabal 7 (1), Zillian 2, Smith 2, Weiss 1.
