Posted on Sep 12 2013 - 9:59am by Admin

France, sluggish offensively in the image of its leading trio Parker-Batum, Diaw, faded before the Lithuania (76-62) in the second round of Euro 2013 Gentlemen basketball , Wednesday, 11 September in Ljubljana, and still has work to reach the quarterfinals.


For their first real test of the tournament after a first generally well managed despite initial defeat against the tower Germany (74-80), the Blues have hit a snag and had a taste of what awaits now. With 26 points in 10 of the 28 shots to their three stars NBA , the French have gone through and found no solution to use on the bench, Alexis Ajinça ​​being the only one to bring his usual points total.

The vice-champions of Europe had the opportunity to ensure their qualification for the quarterfinals. They did not know how to do and will have to wait a bit to make sure we finish in the top four of the group E. They have an appointment you significant Friday 21 hours face to Latvia . They will s’ impose on pain otherwise of having a cold sweat last Sunday’s game against Serbia .
The Blues will avoid take Latvia lightly. With their motion game and crazy shooters, the Baltic sprayed the Ukraine (85-51), although it had stood up to France (77-71) in the first round.


Lithuania recalled some pleasant memories for teammates Tony Parker. They had beaten the Euro 2011 and the 2012 Olympics. Considered before the competition as one of the favorites for the title , she had miraculously enough qualified for the second round. But against France, it has shown a very different face. If the attack is still far from having reached its full capacity, its defense , with five players at 2.10 m and more, of what scare.
The French have experienced the greatest difficulty in approaching the basket and their external address remained far from his usual standards. Nicolas Batum, preserved Monday against the Belgium after injuring his right foot the day before, was back in the starting five blue. A very delicate back to Portland winger.
After ten minutes, he was 0 of 4 shooting and two stray bullets, even if his defense was welcome . As his wingman (8 points total), France, pretty solid defensively, offensively with suffering catastrophic address (26%).
Lithuanians, not very clever either far, would get some baskets in the circle to put pressure on El Tri (22-12, 13th). Fortunately for France, Joffrey Lauvergne brought a little punch in attack. Parker then fielded five points to bring his team before the break (32-27). But after a 0 to 9 in the first period, Lithuanians finally ajustaient the three focal points, and again repelled the Blues (41-31, 26th), inspired little better in attack.
France held the somehow thanks to Alexis Ajinça ​​efforts in the paint, his remaining silent leaders. But every tricolor close was greeted by a volley of winning Lithuanians (57-45, 33 e) shots. The last minutes were not a long ordeal for French, which collapsed, forgetting even in passing that the average point could ultimately be important.
