Frank Ntilikina started for France and had 11 points and three assists, helping his team advance to the World Cup Semifinals.
Ntilikina made a key three with about a minute remaining in the game that put Team USA on the ropes for good. The French guard had an excellent defensive presence, helping limit Kemba Walker to just 10 points on 2-of-9 shooting. Overall, he’s been having an impressive tournament playing under a system and proving to be ready to contribute on both ends of the floor. The point guard situation in New York is a mess though and it’s unclear if he will at least be able to crack Dave Fizdale’s rotation this year.
