Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum led France with a game-high 27 points as Les Bleus completed a 95-93 come-from-behind victory and bronze medal finish at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup on Saturday.

Lithuania led by seven points entering the fourth period, and center Jonas Valanciunas scored five points to put Lithuania ahead by three points with three minutes to play.

But Boris Diaw drove twice to score contested lay-ups as France went ahead and held on.
