France brutalized Jordan today. Pilloried with body blows, it was only a matter of time before Jordan just couldn’t even compete. Our good pal, Frank Ntilikina started and played fantastically.

Jordan was overmatched but this here is a microcosm of the game. Overwhelming defense and some charmed passing led to easy opportunities.

For now we rejoice in Frank dominating against a team he should be dominating. It isn’t a Kobe Bryant style dominance, but he played his role and made sure everyone else could be their best right along with him. He led the team with a +31 too. Full recap to come.
