Australia will play the Dominican Republic in the second group stage of the 2019 FIBA World Cup on Saturday at 6:00pm AEST.

The Boomers sealed top spot in Group H with an 87-82 victory over Lithuania. They also defeated Senegal 81-68 and Canada 108-92. 

Dominican Republic won their opening match 80-76 over Jordan, their second match 70-68 over Germany, before losing 56-90 against France. 

Australia‚Äôs Patty Mills was named the player of the game against Lithuania as he scored 23 points on 8-16 shooting. Aron Baynes dropped 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Joe Ingles continues to be the playmaker with eight assists. 

In their surprise victory over Germany, the Dominican Republic were led by Victor Liz who scored 17 points on 7-14 shooting. Eloy Vargas netted 16 on 7-10 shooting in just over 16 minutes of play. Gelvis Solano was another standout with 11 assists and three steals.

It was a horror display against France with the Dominican Republic shooting 27.9% from the field. Their defense was almost non-existent against the French who shot 57.4% on 35-61 shooting for the game. They also had a massive 21 turnovers and if they repeat that effort, the Boomers will make them pay with Mills and co. all capable of scoring when required. 

The Boomers are almost money back in the head to head market at $1.002 with the Dominican Republic at $46. The line is 25 points and the Dominican Republic are more than capable of keeping the game under 20 points if they play like they did in the first two matches of the tournament.
