And justice shall be done


With many high points in the team narrowly defeated France 95-93 to Lithuania and climbed a podium in a World Cup for the first time in its history. A milestone for basketball demonstrating that nation with the last Eurobasket gold, which is growing rapidly.

The match for third place even started because both defenses were hard and reluctant in the low and high post. Lauvergne (13 points and 9 rebounds) and Jankunas (10 points and 4 recovery) broke that line pressure to start adding in the score for both teams. The first quarter ended 22-19 for the French with a triple Batum (27 points and 26 rating), the figure of the afternoon in Madrid.

The second quarter showed that initial parity by constant attacks and conversions of the two teams. Few faults and aggressiveness to tease and not let the rival in power play. Also, forward Batum began firing his hot hand from the perimeter and punish consecutively Lithuanian rim.

But thanks to Valanciunas, a key factor in the physical recovery of his team, the Baltic country straightened out of the match and went ahead 71-64 in the absence of 10 minutes for the closing. It seemed that the party was doomed. However, the Gauls were, as throughout the World Cup, a surprise to deploy in the field.

But the French comeback was clearly noticed in the final period and finished paying off for a historic third place, nine points difference in favor of them and agonizing victory after many failures to cut quick progress and the clock, another tough nut to crack for any enemy cast.
