Fromsport says 19:00 -> 21:30, but I'm not sure what timezone that is, probable GMT.

Should be good, shame I got work this evening

France is a pretty big underdog, I think I'll bet on them.

You guys think they have a good shot?

I think it's possible, I like what I saw from France. But of course, Spain is hard to handle.....

Spain has no one who can check Tony Parker, France has a ton of guys able to shut down Navarro, for example Batum who will lock him up easily if given the assignment to, but Gasol and Gasol are too good for all of France's shit bigmen.

Its possible, but they have to show their best.

When Navarro is on fire, there is nobody who could shut him down.

Only team that can beat Spain is the U.S.

In Europe maybe, but not NBA against NBA level players, where I have seen him shut down multiple times.

I agree,

but

fuck it, I have:

i) France to win
ii) France to first score 20
iii) Batum more than 1,5 three pointers
iv) Tony Parker more than 20,5 points
v) Joakim Noah more than 8,5 rebounds

which means:

GO FRANCE

You must've missed the part where France already played him twice. Moron.

No one can stop Navarro when he's on, not in the euroleague, not in the NBA, nowhere.

This game is very simple, if Navarro is on then it's an autoloss for France, otherwise they might have a chance but they need to have their best game of the tournament.

I won't be able to watch any of this. But I pick Spain, the twin Gasols would be too much for France to handle.

Spain is a favorite but France can win it too,especially if Parker gets hot.

Game starts at 2 PM ET.
