France Eurobasket LIVE: follow the match live with us

39th: 3 points… His grandmother the grandmother… 71-67 for the Blues

38th : Honestly there if we don’t mess around it should be able to do it. Above all, do not take a three pointer.

38th: And a second for Heurtel, the Blues are widening the gap, we have never been so far ahead! 71-64

38th: Yes Heurtel who finally enters a basket and it’s at the best of times! 69-64

37th: MR EVAN FOURNIER THE POPOPO CHILDREN! A mammoth recovery in defense followed by a three-pointer from space in stride, who’s the boss?!!! 67-64 FRANCE, yes, FRANCE (and not just any)!

36th : Pffffff the spin move of Sabonis which makes the whole French defense waltz before finishing in the basket, how beautiful! 64-62 Lithuania

35th: BADABOUUUUUUUM TARPEY HAS 3 PTS FOR THE 60-60!!!! (Yeah, I got a George Eddy in every finger, I know, I know)

35th: But of course, the and one for Evan at the best of times! 60-57

34th: Ohhhhh the buzzer floater that goes maaaaaaaaaaal! 60-54 (not) for us

33rd : The physical intensity at the end of the match is something. Sabonis comes to be beaten by the Blues in the racket, the shoulder and the arm almost took very expensive.

32nd: BUT YES VINCENT THE MONSTER WITH AN OFFENSIVE REBOUND! It feels good this basket of -4 (58-54 Lit)

31st : As my friend Pascal Dupraz would say, “it’s not tomorrow, it wasn’t yesterday, it’s now! “.

30th: Poirier misses the basket which would have brought us down to -4… 56-50 at the end of this third quarter

29th : 2/2 for Valanciunas on free throws, 56-50 Lithuania.

29th : Collide and shots today, my god…

28th : We are being bitten in a key moment of this match, attention gentlemen, they have had more gnac than us for a few minutes.

27th: Oh yes the caviar of Grigonis to offer the dunk to Valanciunas! They go back in front of the pigs. 50-54

26th : Nice infiltration of Luwawu-Cabarrot which ends with a small lay up left hand. 50-48 France

24th: And Tarpeeeeeeeeeey which gives the Blues the advantage for the first time!! Time out requested by the Lithuanians.

24th: Yes the 3 points of Guerschon! 46-45 Lithuania

23rd : We will not take it out of my head that the contribution of Rudy Gobert in attack is downright insufficient since the start of the Euro.

23rd : Nice air ball from Fournier, it happens.

22nd : The Lithuanians more biting in the offensive rebound and it starts with a +3 from Sabonis for the Slavs.

21st: Come on, roll my chickens!

6:45 p.m. : Come on wags, it’s going to start again soon. So far the Blues have responded to the challenge they had given themselves before the match, they have made an impact and are not clumsy in attack, even if there is still waste here and there.

20th: Come on, let’s say we’re not doing too badly with his last free throws from Fournier (1/2) and Gobert (2/2). The Blues come back to a point just before the break, nickel. See you in a few minutes.

19th : Apart from Grigonis which must be at 5/6 if I’m not mistaken, it is boiling hot. 41-37 Lithuania

19th : Ugh, it’s a festival of failures in this second quarter on one side as on the other.

18th: OK guys, otherwise you can also let Grigonis slam three points from his chair… (39-35 Lithuania) And always this passivity in defense by sequence, that to get your games stuck in a French window.

17th : Stop that!!! What is this maboule lay up from Grigonis? A little “chatteux” certainly, but pretty parabola all the same (36-31). We are again a little in the hard.

14th : Slump on both sides, only two points scored since a shovelful of seconds… 33-31 Lithuania

13th: Popopopo Fournier is in maquina mode tonight, new award-winning shot and already 17 points for him! 31-31 we don’t give up!

12th: But ouiiiiiiiiiii Poirier who perfectly shifts Fournier in the corner and BAM BAM BAM, string! 28-28

11th : Go gas, we leave as we finished and we avoid going through this start of the second quarter.

10th : Luwawu-Cabarrot and Okobo also go there with their little basket, 25-23, we are there ààààààà papa!

9th: WE DON’T ARREST THEM ANYMORE!!! La Fournance’s little layup with the board to bring the Blues to 5 points. 24-19 Lithuania

8th: Go there! Fall’s big right-hand dunk chained by an award-winning shot from Fournier, here are 5 puntos that are good for children. 22-15

7th : The entry of Fall and Poirier does us good all the same I must say, 21-12 Lithuania despite everything.

7th : Enough to say that and behind, bim, +3 clean and clear, without the slightest French challenge, that goes without saying.

7th : It feels good to see them finally miss a three-pointer.

6th : We have less address than a homeless person, it’s exceptional.

6th : First time out of the match, 18-6 for the band in Sabonis.

5th: We are nicely getting sauced, 15-6. Fournier tries to stop the bleeding at 3 points but it’s still a miss, caramba!

4th : While opposite it snipes everywhere, 5/5 for the Lithuanians since the start of the match.

4th: Heurtel still far too short, 0/2 for the leader of Real, we are Tintin!

3rd : Well ok, the guys are warm and skilful, 9-4 Lithuania and Heurtel who fails at three points in stride.

2nd : Well done Fournier who crashes straight out of the screen, we are reassured right away because the Lithuanians were leading 4-0.

1st : The two Gobert-Valanciunas rounds to fight for the first ball, and it is the Lithuanian who wins this duel.

5:45 p.m. : Come on, it’s time to find out if the Blues have any in the belly after the non-match against the Germans.

5:43 p.m. : (Not) thank you to the FFB who did not bother to put the 5 major of the Blues on Twitter. I therefore announce that Teddy Tarpey and Thomas Heurtel replace Andrew Albicy and Elie Okobo.

5:40 p.m. : The hymns have been sung and I take this opportunity to share with you the end of that of the Lithuanians, which I like very much: “You have lived too long in peace […] But my blood will be reborn […] Even if we are only three million […] Legends we will become. »

5:35 p.m. : There are officially 2,000 Lithuanian supporters in the stands, in reality they are at least double. It will make noise this afternoon, I hope our Blues are ready.

5:30 p.m.: Salute la mif! I hope you are having a good Saturday and that it will continue with a victory for Les Bleus. They don’t really have a choice anyway, out of the question to repeat a purge as they did two days ago against the Germans. As Collet said before the match, “there is already an emergency”.

Stunned after its heavy defeat against Germany for its first steps at EuroBasket, the France team must already start again with coal and react. Vincent Collet’s men had promised to work hard on the fundamentals after the rout at the start of the week, and this second match will be an opportunity to see if the Fourniers, Goberts and company will keep their promise. Anyway, there is really no choice, in this group which also includes Bosnia and Slovenia, among others. From this match against Lithuania, we will also expect a duel of giants between the pair of giants Poirier-Gobert and their Baltic counterpart Sabonis-Valanciunas.

>> Kick-off at 5:45 p.m.
