The Tall Blacks have suffered another heavy loss ahead of next week's last chance Olympic basketball qualifying tournament in Venezuela.

The New Zealand men's side has been beaten 99-66 by the world's fourth ranked side Greece, at a warm up tournament in Brazil.

It comes after a 73-49 loss to Brazil yesterday.

The Tall Blacks have one final warm up match against Nigeria tomorrow, before playing Macedonia in the opening round of the Olympic qualifier next week.
