Could this be the most entertaining game in GB basketball history? Throwback to August 2010 as part of EuroBasket 2011 qualifiers, Great Britain got past FYR Macedonia – who were led by Bo Mccalebb (who had 30) – in an OT thriller.
After GB went up comfortably early, Macedonia stormed back into the game in the second half, leading by 7 with two minutes remaining before GB came up with some huge baskets including a three from Luol Deng with 5 seconds remaining to force OT.

In OT it was all GB as they rolled to the win.

Dan Clark and Nate Reinking added 11 each, with Justin Robinson having 8.
Bo McCalebb’s 30 led Macedonia, Pero Antic had 16 and Todor Gechevski joined them in double figures with 11.
