Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

 

One day after falling by two points to Brazil, France finds itself in a position where it needs a win.

After a crushing loss to the Brazilians, the French will turn their attention to Serbia, who are no slouch either. Serbia is coming off a 21-point victory over Egypt in day 1, where Stefan Blrcevic led the way with 11 points and nine rebounds.

In France’s loss against Brazil, Boris Diaw led the game with 15 points, six rebounds and five assists. If France is going to bounce back, they’re going to need other key contributors, such as Nicolas Batum who only finished with 13 points in game 1, to fill the stat sheet as well.
