In basketball nothing is ever over, but this time things were really badly started at EuroBasket. Before winning in a snatch in overtime (87-86) against Turkey, les bleus came closer than ever to corrections at the end of the fourth quarter against Turkey. Back in three acts on this exceptional reversal of the situation.
After a huge scare in the third quarter, France team found the resources to win against Turkey after extra time. Vincent Collet will be able to thank Rudy Gobert, author of a big performance and important baskets.
It passes for the France team, but not much! In a very tense match against Turkey, Evan Fournier and his teammates got the better of the score 87-86 after extra time. Vincent Collet’s men however conceded an ugly 22-6 in the third quarter after a big start to the match, before suffering towards the end of the fourth. Fortunately, Rudy Gobert has been there.
Author of 20 points and 17 rebounds, the Frenchman was the author of the equalizer in the last seconds. In overtime, despite some fears, it was EDF who found the resources to win this game, by very little. Heading to the quarter-finals now, but there are clearly things to settle.
EuroBasket: It passes for France against Turkey!
Evan Fournier, guilty of a few mistakes in the late game, caught up with a big three-pointer. France is now waiting to learn more about its next opponent (Italy or Serbia), but a reaction is expected.
After a big start to the game, France lacked consistency to easily dominate Turkey. It still passes after a big battle, and a great Rudy Gobert, author of decisive baskets. A great scare, but the road continues for EDF. Head to the quarters.
