Tweet of the Night: Batum, Rubio, Gasol and others react to EuroBasket semi-finals between Spain and France

Tony Parker Nicolas BatumEuropean basketball, aka EuroBasket, is well represented by notable NBA players (former and current), and plenty of them were in action on Friday in the semi-finals between Spain and France.

France boasted a lineup of Tony Parker, Nicolas Batum, Boris Diaw, Alexis Ajinca and Mickael Gelabale. Spain also had plenty of familiar names like Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon, Rudy Fernandez and Victor Claver. Unfortunately for Spain, they were missing two key players in Pau Gasol and Juan Carlos Navarro. 

Hoping for a chance to fight for the gold against Lithuania, the two teams were in a tight battle all the way into overtime action. In the end, France managed to upset the Spanish team 75-72. With no one in particular playing well for France – Batum managed just three points and three turnovers – Parker stepped up to score 32 points and was the only player to reach double figures for the team. Gasol had 19 points and nine rebounds, while Fernandez added 17 points.

Here are the reactions of some of the players after the contest:
