Revanš Orlova, uz proslavljen jubilej Nemanje Bjelice. Na prijateljskoj utakmici protiv selekcije Francuske, Srbija je uspela da se revanšira za poraz u Nansiju, rezultatom 73:63.
Ekipa Aleksandra Đorđevića opravdala je visoka očekivanja u najvećem delu utakmice, a igrač koji se najviše istakao tokom deonica, bio je Nemanja Bjelica, kome je danas upriličena proslava prošlogodišnjeg jubileja. Naime, još na Mundobasketu, Bjelica je ostvario 100 odigranih utakmica u nacionalnom dresu. U međuvremenu, ta brojka je porasla, a odlučeno je da se pred domaćom publikom obeleži upravo večeras. Novi igrač Timbervulfsa je dobio uramljeni dres, sa brojem 100.
Ekipa predvođena kapitenom, Milošem Teodosićem, koji je preventivno veći deo utakmice proveo na klupi, je nadigrala odličnu Francusku, na čelu sa Tonijem Parkerom. Bravure francuskih igrača na parketu Kombank Arene, samo su potvrdile njihov nesumnjiv kvalitet, te težinu “posla”, koji čeka Srbiju na predstojećem Evropskom prvenstvu.
Na strani Srbije se istakao i odlični Miroslav Raduljica, kao i Simonović, Nedović, te Bogdanović. Uprkos samo dva ubačena poena, i mladi Nemanja Dangubić je prikazao veliki napredak u igri, sa više lepih poteza.
Reprezentativci Srbije deluju sve snažnije, te je očigledan njihov ulazak u dobru takmičarsku formu. Nakon Trofeja Beograda će se znati i konačan spisak igrača, koji putuju na Eurobasket.
A good rematch by the Serbian Eagles, and a very special jubilee for Nemanja Bjelica. After another friendly game against France, Serbia has won by 73:63, in front of the home crowd.
The team of coach, Aleksandar Đorđević has justified the high expectations and delivered a very solid game. Tonight’s MVP and the player that showed the most moves on court was Timberwolves’ new player, Nemanja Bjelica. He was also given a chance to celebrate a very important milestone, that he had reached last year, during the Mundobasket. A hundred games for the National team, and a number that had grown in the meantime. It was decided that this would be a great chance to commemorate such an achievement, which is why he was given a framed jersey, with the number 100 on it, as a token of appreciation.
The team was lead by captain Miloš Teodosić, that had spent most of the time on the bench, due to his recent calf injury. It was a precaution measure, meant to relieve the pressure from the “brains” of the Serbian National Team. The players have definitely shown a rise in fitness and the fact that all the pieces are starting to come together. Something that will definitely be needed at the Eurobasket.
France was lead by the always excellent Tony Parker. Together with his teammates, he has shown beautiful moves, and why it will be difficult for any team, including Serbia, to beat them in the upcoming championship.
Aside from Bjelica, Miroslav Raduljica was showing off his skills, and a total of 10 points, together with teammates Marko Simonović, Bogdan Bogdanović and Nemanja Nedović. Despite scoring only 2 points in the game, the young Nemanja Dangubić has shown how far he has gone, since last year, with various respect worthy moves.
Coach Đorđević will have a difficult job deciding on the final number of players that will go to the Eurobasket. A job that will be finished after the Belgrade Trophy.
