Spain is going to Rio for the 2016 Olympic basketball tournament, and they can thank Pau Gasol
He scored half of Spain’s 80 points in an overtime win over France in the EuroBasket semifinals. Gasol was the only thing keeping Spain in the game for the first three quarters, when France’s defense largely frustrated other Spanish shooters. Then when Spain needed big buckets at the end, there was Gasol with hooks in the lane, and a few timely dunks.
Bulls fans should be smiling, hoping they get to see some of this Gasol this season.
