Eurobasket: France beats Greece with talent, mentality

143 Comments

By Chris Sheridan

KAUNAS, Lithuania — Historically, when the French have played the Greeks, the script has so often played out the same way: It would be a close game in the fourth quarter, and the French would then fall apart like they were mimicking the recent Greek economy.

So when Thursday’s quarterfinal was a two-point game with 2:01 left, the French should have been predisposed to expect the worst. Who would make the crucial mistake? Who would commit a stupid foul? Who would let the Greeks’ strategy of slowing the game to a snail’s pace (they held France to 40 points through three quarters) become the determining factor.

For once, the answer was none of the above — although for a few moments it certainly looked like Tony Parker might be this year’s culprit.

Instead, it was Nicolas Batum who rose to he occasion and made the biggest plays in the final 120 seconds. First, it was a side jumper off a pretty feed from Nando de Colo. Next, he blocked a shot by Nick Calathes to preserve that four-point lead. And finally, he knocked down a jumper from the corner with 1:12 left to make it 60-54.

“We had to fight for 40 minutes, and we never gave up, and we continued to play defense,” French coach Vincent Collet said. “In the fourth quarter, we wanted it in the same way that before the Greek teams had wanted it against us in the past.

“Mentally speaking, we were very strong. We could have been scared after the first three quarters, but we didn’t slip. Tonight, it was equally a basketball victory and a mental victory.”

Greece and France met nine times in international competitions between 1996 and 2006, and Greece was 9-0 in those games before the French ended the streak two years ago at EuroBasket in Poland.

In this game, the talent advantage was squarely on the French side. The mental advantage? That was what was in doubt.

Parker was at his best in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter with eight points and an assist on a 3-pointer by Batum as France built a 56-50 lead. But Parker then had two misses and a turnover, and Greece went to the line six times over that stretch but only made four of the free throws.

Batum took over from there offensively, and Joakim Noah stripped the ball from Nicolas Zisis with 19 seconds left to end whatever miniscule chance Greece had of making it competitive in the final seconds.

Parker (18 points), deColo (16 points) and Batum (15) accounted for 49 of France’s points in the 64-56 victory that moved Les Blues one victory away from qualifying for the 2010 Olympics. 

In the semifinals, they will play the winner of Thursday’s nightcap between Serbia and Russia.

“Now that we are in the semifinals, we want more,” France’s Florent Pietrus said. “But it will be a difficult game.”

France defeated Serbia 97-96 in the second round, but they have not played Russia in this tournament.

Collet tipped his hand a little when asked which opponent he would prefer: “Sometimes it is better to play against a (new) team, but I think we can beat both.”

Greece, which is without top players Vassilis Spanoulis, Dimitrios Diamantidis and Sofaklis Shortsianitis, will play the loser of the Serbia-Russia quarterfinal on Friday afternoon for a chance to join Lithuania and a few others in next summer’s pre-Olympic qualifying tournament.

  19. To put it simply, All-Season tires are a huge compromise in all seasons. Winter tire technology has made leaps and bounds in the last 10 years. You will not believe how much better they are in the ice/snow/slush than All-Seasons. Im not talking about those big lug, old school winter truck tiresIm refering to the winter compound Blizzak style. Based on where you live, it is way safer and much more cost effective in the long run to have two sets of tires for your car. Seriously, the difference between Winter tires and All-Seasons is astounding. No more ass puckering stormy commutes home. Make the switch once and you will never go back.

  24. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  32. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  75. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  84. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  128. I’d must verify with you here. Which isn’t something I usually do! I take pleasure in reading a post that may make individuals think. Also, thanks for permitting me to remark!

  129. just watched the espn3 replay of this game and i have to give nando de colo a whole lot of credit for coming out in the second half and playing help defense. the whole first half, all greece had to do was make ONE pass and there would be an open guy with nobody closing out on him. france also made some offensive runs when diaw sat out — he had been doing his annoying “there’s no way i’m going to to shoot — look, tony parker is covered at the arc… kick out!!” routine. i dunno, watching him over the years, sometimes he’s aggressive and takes some shots, which makes the defense respond, and sometimes he treats the ball like a hot potato. today was a hot potato game.

    frustrating game ot watch — france’s offense was largely terrible with few exceptions. that falls on the coaching staff, IMO.

    i don’t mean to disrespect greece, but they hung in largely because france played with no energy whatsoever on either side of the court. they packed the paint and the french side didn’t do much of anything to draw them out. no ball movement, no plays, really. greece moved the ball on offense, but with no help D from the french until late, it wasn’t something they could look great doing.

    ugly game with some good shots late to close it out for france.
