Don't look now but Jan Vesely may have found his confidence. So far in Eurobasket 2013 the Wizards' forward certainly has found his game.
Plying for the Czech Republic along with Washington's 2012 second-round pick Tomas Satoransky Vesely leads the entire tournament in rebounding (11.3) and is tied fourth in scoring (18.5). For some context regarding the talent on hand for the tournament in Slovenia the scorer Vesely is tied with is San Antonio Spurs star and French guard Tony Parker.
The Czech squad evened its record at 2-2 with a 95-79 over Georgia on Sunday behind 27 points and 10 rebounds from a fist-pumping Vesely. On the assumption that many of you didn't seek out the game online there is video of Vesely taking a lob from Satoransky and overall highlights with the 6-foot-11 forward making an aggressive dunking appearance (about the 1:08 mark). He finished 12 of 14 from the floor. The 27 points came in only 27 minutes.
