The results of the France vs. Jordan game are in, and the final score is 103 – 64, France.
Fans will notice when looking at the box score that France was playing great defense, keeping Jordan from scoring more than 20 points each quarter. The most Jordan scored in one quarter was 18, and that was in the first.
It could be argued that France not only did an excellent job defensively, but offensively as well. France consistently scored 25 or more points per quarter, which resulted in a lopsided victory winning by 49.
When you compare Evan Fournier’s performance this game to the previous one, you will notice he scored significantly less; however, the scoring was evenly distributed throughout the team for this win. Reserve player, Nando De Colo, scored the most for Team France putting up 19.
Looking at the standings for Group G, France moved up from the two seed and now sits at the first seed; however, that doesn’t mean the team should celebrate early, as its next game will be against the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic has not lost a game yet either, which means both teams will be competing for the number one spot in Group G.
Additionally, when comparing where France is ranked to other NBA teams that have Magic players, France is the only team to have improved their seeding; whereas the other teams, Montenegro, Nigeria and Canada have remained at the same seed.
While Team France may have reached the first seed, the team’s next challenge will come this upcoming Thursday as they look to defend its spot in the standings.
France will compete against the Dominican Republic Thursday at 8:30 AM EST.
