paid the $16.00 to watch every game and now I can't watch the game Argentina vs France....WTF...It's saying is blocked... I guess I won't be able to watch any tems from the America region. They should have said that before I bought it
without T.Parker, there was not much hope on French side and, eventually, 10 points at the end of the game (70-80) is not that bad.
Argentina looked solid : whenever the French got back to 5 or 7 points, Nocioni or Ginobili would send them backwards. Those 2 guys were extremely impressive, especially the former. I was not much thrilled by the big guys, Scola being a bit shy.
On the french side, TP's substitute Jeanneau was lost and soon back on the bench. Then entered Bokolo, 20, and I'm sure the scouts of the world took good notice how good this incredibly energetic PG could be. Pietrus Florent, PF, was easily the best French on the floor. I know 6 feet 6 or 7 is short for the NBA but this one deserves a spot.The other ones were average : diaw and gelabele could not compensate for TP's offensive game.
next games : argentina is solid. They may lose vs Spain or Greece, but i can't see how the US could beat them. They just don't have enough front court offensive weapons, and Nocioni/Ginobili will no doubt outclass Wade/James.
France : a quarter final would be nice. semis are out of reach
Boris Diaw took his responsabilities at the end of the game.
Darko was brilliant from time to time, though he took too many outside shots. He was alone though, Rakocevic being the only other offensive weapon of the serbs. Eventually, France's defense prevailed.
