BLAZERS STAR GETS HOT FOR FRANCE


LONDON (AP)

Nicolas Batum scored 23 points to lead France to a 79-73 victory over Nigeria in the Olympic men's basketball tournament on Monday.

France will finish no worse than third in Group A.

Batum nailed a 3-pointer to put France up 65-62 and the French (4-1) never trailed again after Nigeria had battled back from an 11-point halftime deficit.

The Portland Trail Blazers standout hit two more 3s down the stretch. His 3-pointer with 2:38 to play gave France a 75-68 lead and he drained another for 79-70 France advantage. Batum also had six rebounds.
