France Tops Argentina in Prelimin Round
They’ve been teammates for so long that they’re basketball brothers, family. They’ve won countless games and three NBA titles together.
But Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili were out of place Tuesday night — on opposite teams in the Olympics.
“Very strange,” Ginobili said. “The first time ever after playing probably like a thousand games together. Wishing him to miss a shot is kind of something new.”
Parker scored 17 points and fed a lob pass over Ginobili for a key basket in the final two minutes to help France stun Argentina 71-64 in a preliminary round tournament game featuring 10 NBA players.
