Parker, France cruised past Bosnia and Herzegovina


After finishing the London Invitational Tournament on a 5-0 slate, the French national team went back into action against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Team France had a slow start, they finished the opening period trailing 22-25 but eventually came back into the game in the second quarter erasing a 3-point deficit on their way to a 45-39 halftime advantage.

During the third quarter, with San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker and Nando De Colo leading the attack, France turned a close game into a blowout.

The Frenchmen outscored Bosnia and Herzegovina 25-5 in period and entered the final quarter up by 26 points 70-44.

Bosnia and Herzegovina never threatened the lead as Team France held on for an easy 85-60 victory.

Parker led the French nationals with 21 points, De Colo added 18, while Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah had 12 points and nine rebounds in the win.

Henry Domercant had a game-high 23 points for Bosnia and Herzegovina while Mirza Teletovic added 10 points and nine rebounds in the loss.

      • Tonyforlife, Yeah TP and Nando are really doing well in these friendly games let’s hope that continues at the 2011 EuroBasket.

        Bruno, It looks like it, Brazil and Argentina could finish the FIBA Americas as the 1st and 2nd teams thus earning an automatic berth for the 2012 London Olympics.

        At worst, maybe one of them could possibly slide at 4th spot. From my understanding, the third, fourth and fifth teams will have another chance to gain an Olympic berth via the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
