A quick death today for the Dominican Republic. France was sloppy and wild just to make it appear to be the same competition. Nevertheless a rather ugly game where Les Bleus just outpaced an inferior opponent. The perimeter defense from Frank Ntilikina and the whole crew kept the Dominicans from really getting any easy looks and the interior defense was staunch as per the norm.
A few plays that stood out to moi:
Eight points, two bounds, four assists, three turnovers (all in the first half) and two steals with a +23 on the night for big Frank. Undefeated group stage for France and they go on to face the very large Lithuanian team on Saturday morning. Full recap a little later on today.
Oh yea, he got to play in front of Mom Ntilikina too. I see you head coach of the New York Knicks, David Fizdale.
