Leandro Barbosa scored a game-high 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including 5-of-6 from the charity stripe) with one rebound, two assists and two steals over 29 minutes in Brazil’s loss to Lithuania.
With the Brazilians getting blown out, Barbosa almost single-handedly brought the Brazilians back by scoring 17 points in the third quarter. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough for the host Brazilians. Returning to the Suns next season, Barbosa will have more real life value than fantasy value as the Suns are stocked with young and talented guards. He will provide emergency depth and won’t be on fantasy radars. Cristiano Felicio only scored four points with four rebounds and one block, but he looked to be in great shape and continues to build on his impressive summer. As Robin Lopez’s primary backup, he will have deep league value with standard league upside if anything were to happen to Lopez.
