Yesterday Spain defeated France at the Eurobasket 2011 tournament 98-85 to take gold and reserve their spot at the London games.
Although France was dotted with solid players, Spain’s huge advantage was size. The tandem of Pau and Marc Gasol manned the paint but it was the huge defensive effort by Thunder’s Serge Ibaka which sent a message to France.
And his message to France was do not even think about getting easy shots at the rim.
Check out Ibaka with an impressive five blocks in four minutes.
