Adrian Wojnarowski: If there’s gonna be a team that beats [USA Basketball[ in a one-game setting… I always thought it would be a team that’s been together for a long time — that’s not intimidated… [France] is equipped to do it. Rudy Gobert: We are. I deeply believe that it’s gonna happen. One of my dreams is to win an Olympic gold medal with the French National Team. Hopefully in 2020 we can put a team together to try and compete with them.
Boris Diaw scored a huge buzzer-beating three-pointer from half court, allowing Levallois Metropolitans to escape with a precious 85 – 82 win from Bourg.
Even though he hasn’t played a game since the EuroBasket and spent only a few days practicing with his new team, Diaw managed to score 10 points (1/2 2-pointers, 2/3 from beyond the arc), gather 6 rebounds and dish out 3 assists to his teammates.
