Pau Gasol was fantastic in Spain’s loss to Croatia, scoring 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting (including 3-of-4 from deep) with nine rebounds and one assist over 32 minutes of action.
Gasol was up to his old tricks, carving up the Croatians down low and burning them from deep when left open. He was easily the best player on the floor. Unfortunately, he point blank layup attempt to tie the game was blocked at the buzzer by Dario Saric. Gasol is a good fit for the Spurs and should once again provide early-to-mid round value, especially if he continues to knock down treys like he did tonight.
