FInland beat France 77-73 in the additional qualifying second round for the Eurobasket!
It was a little disappointing night for a Blazer fan living in Finland (like myself), since Nicolas Batum didn't play (due to his trip to Portland to show his shoulder). The good news is that Petteri Koponen had a good match up against Tony Parker.
Here are the numbers for comparison:
Tony Parker played 30:43 minutes and shot 2/7, 0/7, 0/1 totaling 4 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal and 2 turnovers
Koponen played 32:44 minutes and shot 2/4, 2/4, 5/6 totaling 15 points, 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block and 1 turnover
