Joffrey Lauvergne scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and one block in France’s 96-56 blowout win over Venezuela on Friday.
The lopsided score allowed some guys that haven’t been participating as much to get some touches and some burn, but we’re not surprised at all by Lauvergne stepping up. In fact, if Denver wasn’t so clogged with quality big men he’d get a lot more attention in fantasy leagues. France has locked up a spot in the knockout round after a slow start to Olympic play.
