It wasn't enough

Despite a dramatic comeback, France paid his mistakes in the first three quarters and lost 85-90 against Serbia, surprising finalist.
Serbia gave a lesson in basketball in France during the first 30 minutes, and much of this initial difference was the grace of Teodosic, who dominated the game at his own pace. Six straight points in a 11-0 run allowed them to peel away 20-10 into the eighth minute, but actions of Batum and Fournier narrowed the gap to six (21-15) at the end of the first quarter.

Teodosic continued his magic in the second period with ten points and another Serbian run, this time 9-0, to be up 30-15. Another seven straight points stretched the lead to 43-25 but France again settled things to put down by 14, 46-32.
.
The start of the second half was very similar. Serbia pulled the strings of the match and again a diffence of 18 during the 35th minute. Another triple of Batum cut it to fifteen at the end of the third quarter, 61-46. The Serbs had only received 15 points in the first quarter, 17 in the second and just 14 in the third, so the 15-point lead with which began the last period seemed final.

But France reacted with a huge heart and burning their last stamina on the court. They quickly came into play with a triple and there was all stick to stick, but always with Serbia on Batum unstoppable France came to make a double. Despite his 35 points and 7-10 in triples in 36 minutes, the French effort was pointless and Serbia endured the onslaught as he could, taking the match 90-85

The team lead by Djordjevic had qualified to the second round in last place in Group A, there won with great authority both in Greece and raised his game and confidence. In the quarterfinals they severely defeated Brazil and now realized France to be a finalist.

On Sunday at 21:00 (Spanish time) they will face the United States in the final, the Americans get plugged after defeating his rivals by more than 20 points. Tomorrow at 18:00 Lithuania clash with France to settle the final podium.
