The final score of game between Team France and Team Lithuania is in, 78 – 75, France.

This could be contributed to France’s many offensive and defensive options, such as Evan Fournier’s 24 points, Nando De Colo’s 21 points and Rudy Gobert’s 8 rebounds. While the final score may indicate that France barely won this game, the fact that it was a team effort should be a reason to celebrate.

In addition, Team France is now the first seed of Group L, ahead of Australia, Lithuania and the Dominican Republic. However, just because France won against Lithuania, doesn’t mean they’ll be able to cruise on to the next round, it still needs to win against Australia, another formidable team with NBA players.

Some NBA players that are on Team Australia’s roster include: Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Matthew Dellavedova and Andrew Bogut; furthermore, three of the four players listed were NBA champs from the last four years.

Additionally, while Team Australia may not have a player who has scored in the 20-point range, in its previous game against the Dominican Republic, it’s still a serious threat that Team France mustn’t take lightly, especially if it wants to compete in the final round. Because one of the worst things a competitor can do is celebrate before the game is over.

The upcoming game between France and Australia will be on Monday, so this gives both teams time for much needed rest, as well as a chance to see what needs to be fine-tuned for the upcoming match, that decides who gets to be the first seed of Group L.

Catch the game between France versus Australia, Monday at 8 AM EST.

My name is Jonathan David and I am from a small town called Green Cove Springs, located in northeast Florida. Originally from Miami, Florida, my family moved up north, as I was entering the fourth grade. Once we moved, I eventually started getting into sports a lot more. I did soccer, basketball and running and pole-vaulting; however, the main sport that I pretty much keep up with is, basketball, specifically the NBA. Although I’ll occasionally watch track and field if it’s on ESPN. There were many reasons why I got into basketball, besides it looking like fun, one reason was because I wanted to be like Bugs Bunny from Space Jam, not Michael Jordan, but Bugs Bunny, and while my dream of being an animated character hasn’t panned out, I still enjoy playing and watching the sport. My favorite NBA team is the Orlando Magic, and I’ve been a fan since Lebron was in Miami, so when they eventually get good, people can’t say I’m a bandwagon fan.
