Germany Beat Italy!

Germany beat Italy today to advance in 'EuroBasket' and keep their 2008 Olympic dreams alive. A certain someone stepped up to lead Germany to the win.
With the game tied 33-33 with five minutes left in the third quarter and Dirk Nowitzki struggling, Johannes Herber took the load upon his shoulders and scored 10 of Germany's final 13 points of the period and gave the 2005 silver medallists a 46-37 advantage over Italy going into the final 10 minutes. Germany never relinquished the lead in winning 67-58 and advancing to the quarter-finals."
Dirk had 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Does anyone actually care if Germany plays in the Olympics? Do you want Germany to lose so Dirk can rest?
