Rudy Gobert rejects Marcin Gortat during key French win over Poland at EuroBasket

It may not have been the most dramatic, but the showdown between unbeaten France and Poland at EuroBasket Monday was the key game of the day in Group A — two undefeated team and the winner is in the drivers’ seat to win the group.

It started with history — Tony Parker became the all-time leading scorer in EuroBasket history with France’s first bucket of the game.

Once again Jazz big man Rudy Gobert was making some plays — he had eight points, seven rebounds and three blocked shots. One of those you can see above — it’s not easy to reject Poland/Wizards big man Marcin Gortat.

France held a small but relatively steady lead most of the second half, but they were never comfortable, and Poland made a push. It wasn’t enough, Les Blues were able to make enough plays to get the 69-66 win. One of the guys making those plays? Gobert.
