Another day, another impressive performance from the Bulls' new point guard.
Tomas Satoransky was at it again in the FIBA World Cup on Monday, finishing with 13 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists in the Czech Republic's 84-77 loss to Greece. The Czechs advanced to the quarterfinals despite the loss because they lost by fewer than 12 points, giving them a tiebreaker win over Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Greeks.
It's much farther than anyone expected the Czechs to get in the FIBA World Cup; they're the 24th ranked team in the FIBA World Rankings.
But Satoransky has led the charge. In five games he's averaging 15.2 points on 44.6% shooting, 6.0 rebounds and 7.4 assists in 33.4 minutes. He has made 6 of 14 3-point attempts (42.9%) and is 20 of 22 from the free throw line (90.9%).
He'll look to keep the Czechs alive on Wednesday with a date against Australia.
