Leave a comment

In the EuroBasket semi-finals, France was finally able to conquer Spain in overtime, thanks in large part to Tony Parker’s big 32-point performance. Parker is just one of many NBA players racking up big minutes this summer, but when you watch these games, you begin to understand how important it is to these guys to represent their home country.

While Parker deserves a great deal of the credit for France advancing to the championship game tomorrow against a surprising Lithuania squad led by Toronto Raptors big man Jonas Valanciunas, check out how well France defended Spain’s last possession. That’s what you call suffocating defense.

We’ll see if Parker and France can keep it tomorrow in the final game of the 2013 EuroBasket tournament.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
