What Canada She aspired firmly to embarrass USA It was taken for granted, but the first version shown at this World Cup is shocking. The selection of Melvin Ejim showed ample qualifications against a France several notches below (95–65). The composer was given fifteen minutes to showcase these well-known virtues, which are greatly valued on any team and add breadth to the rotation. 3 points, 4 rebounds, and a PIR of 7, with a very aesthetic penetration of the last ring, one of the most brilliant moves of a game in which he shone Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a clear contender for Championship MVP (27 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, and a PIR of 36). At half throttle, the star of the Oklahoma City Thunder delivered the most outstanding performance of day one of the World Championships.
Lebanon, Latvia As rivals in this group, it would be a big surprise if Canada weren’t the group leader, so this win gets double the value and also leaves a very touched French team. It’s worth Ejim spending that time on the track and giving a break to Dillon Brooks or Luguentz Dort, two NBA players who can resemble the traits of the composite player. Jordi Fernández’s ability to oxygenate his perimeter with Toronto’s is a good resource that he will tweak as the games progress
The score remained even until the break (43-40)Even though France won the game, there were too many defeats that fed the Americans. But from the third quarter on, it was a storm for Shai, well accompanied by Kelly Olynyk (18 points and 4 rebounds) or Nickeil Alexander Walker (12 points). Canada will be watching the second day of competition from afar, where the USA, Spain, or Serbia will make their debut. Nice beginning. And there’s Melvin Ejim, who represents Unicaja in one of the best teams in the world.
