Aron Baynes and Ricky Rubio will soon unite in Phoenix.

Right now, they’re two days away from facing each other in FIBA World Cup semifinals Friday in China.

Baynes posted six points, five rebounds and four assists Wednesday to help Australia beat the Czech Republic, 82-70, in the quarterfinals to set up an showdown against the Rubio-led Spain.

The Suns starting point guard scored 19 points, knocking down 3-of-4 from 3, dished out nine assists and added five rebounds to lead Spain past Poland, 90-78, on Tuesday.
