The fourth quarter of yesterday’s game was by far the best 10′ of basketball we’ve seen in this World Cup. Batum led France to a superb quarter where everyone contributed at a splendid level.
Collet, France’s coach, showed again great skill and above all courage, everyone at Palacio de los Deportes thought the game had ended in the third quarter.
Serbia suddenly stopped playing, evidence of their moody nature even though their marked improvement this year.
Bogdanovic came to the rescue and Teodosic managed to hold his temper at the right moment.
This is the dawn of a new era. The empire of the last ten years has come to an end, now we are going to witness the beginning of a multipolar world: Serbia, France, the new Greece, Lithuania and the new Spain. These are the new actors once the Spanish empire is over.
