GAME REPORT

13.09.2013
France Hold Off Latvia Rally

Turning Point: France led by 22 points in the third quarter but watched Latvia cut the gap to nine points when Latvia's Armands Skele missed a layup which could have made it a seven-point game. In the run back down court, the Latvia bench was hit with a technical foul and Tony Parker's two free throws established a double-digit lead.
Game Hero: Alexis Ajinca was too much for the Latvians to handle inside with 25 points, five rebounds and three blocks.
Stats Don't Lie: France shot 59.7% from the field for the game while out-rebounding Latvia 35-23 and hitting 90.5% from the free throw line.

9. Dairis Bertans (Latvia)
Dairis Bertans  had a game-high 28 points for Latvia but it was not enough to stop the Tony Parker-led French

France booked a spot in the quarter-finals of EuroBasket 2013 by knocking off Latvia to improve to 3-1 in Second Round Group E.

Alexis Ajinca paced the French with 25 points and five rebounds while Tony Parker scored 23 points and Nicolas Batum collected 19 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

"We controlled the second quarter. We started the third very well but Latvia are a very good team and play with so much heart and never give up. We were scoring two points and they were scoring three points. They were fantastic [in] the last 12 minutes," said France coach Vincent Collet, whose team moved onto the final eight from the group along with Lithuania and Serbia.

"We had a really good start, especially on defence and that led to good offence. We had a good start to the third quarter. We started to relax and they made some crazy threes, and they scared us for nothing," said Nicolas Batum.

It was the first time a team scored 100 points in the tournament, topping the 95 points the Czech Republic scored against Georgia.

Latvia dropped to 1-3 despite Dairis Bertans scoring 28 points - a personal best in a national team singlet.

"They played aggressive basketball and played like an experienced team are supposed to do. Late in the game when we calmed our emotions down we got back into the game. We were close to catching the French," said Latvia coach Ainars Bagatskis.

The Latvians square off against Belgium needing a victory in the first game on Sunday and a Lithuania win over Ukraine in the second game to book a quarter-final berth.

France didn't waste any time taking control of the game.

It was tied 10-10 when Les Bleus put on the clamps in allowing just one three-pointer in a 21-3 run over a 6:19 minute stretch to build a 31-13 lead. The cushion was 31-15 after one quarter.

Latvia trimmed the deficit to 33-19 early in the second quarter, but France would not let them get back into the game, building the lead to 20 points - 52-32 - late in the second quarter. The French advantage was 52-35 at the break.

France pushed the margin to 22 points - 65-43 - when Kristaps Janicenoks and Rihards Kuksiks both knocked down triples to help Latvia rush back into the game. Rolands Freimanis scored to get the score to 74-65. Armands Skele had a chance to cut the margin to six points but missed a layup which was followed by a technical foul on the Latvian bench. Parker made two free throws to give France a 76-65 lead after four quarters.

The combination of Ajinca and Parker helped increase the margin back to 14 points - 93-79 - before Bertans and Strelnieks helped cut the margin to 98-91 with 1:50 minutes to play. Freimanis missed a triple which could have made it a four-point game and Parker raced back to the other end to make it 100-91 with 54 seconds to play.
