France is the second favourite on this contest to win the title and so far they are looking great. Team with great roster, experienced players, most of them are NBA superstars. Yesterday they showed the team quality beating Greece in the quarter-finale even they where 5 points down at half time. The key in this team is the shoot, the defence works great, great transition from defence to offence and clear shoots from 3points line. Tony Parker is the capiten and he is doing great job so far, the centar Noah is the most powerfull player in this team and Batum is the best shooter. There is no doubt about the quality. In the other side we have the russian team who looks as good as ever. This guys are still unbeaten so far but in some games they have it to much lucky. Points in the last seconds against Macedonia and Slovenia, in games where they were big favourites, where all the world was expecting to see some easy wins in this matches. The roster is good, their best and key player is NBA superstar Kirilinko but this guys is not showing his best perfomance. Against Macedonia he scored only 2 points in all game, this statistics is showing me that he has problems against the teams who are playing good in the defence. So, if France stop him they will have one pretty easy match today. Yesterday they beat Serbia thanks to the bad game of Teodosic. Serbian best player lost to many balls, shooting some stuppid shots from distance and this poor perfomance where the reason of their lost. But France is not Serbia and France has the roster who can stop the unbeaten guys. In my oppinion France look better so far, for me they have stronger roster from their opponent, better transition, best shooters. I’m expecting their win today.
Good luck !
