France defeated Lithuania 95-93 to secure the bronze medal. This game was all about Boris Diaw, who scored 15 points, and about France’s 31-22 fourth quarter. Before the third quarter...

The Origin of Evan Fournier’s Nickname

I just realized that there hasn’t been an official Orlando Magic post on the ‘More Champagne’ nickname that has been bestowed upon Evan Fournier. Let’s change that. One look at the 21-year-old’s Twitter account, and you know immediately how much Evan covets his nickname. Fournier has been having a solid run for the French national team at the FIBA World Cup. That means...

Group A has the day off Tuesday before France takes on host Spain tomorrow. Magic fans, and...
