W/S Start of press conference
SOT, Rudy Gobert, France national team basketballer: "[Argentina] was the better team tonight, from the first to the last minute. They were more aggressive, they played more as a team, we couldn't run one play, they were jumping the best lanes, pushing us off the starts. Just from the first to the last minute, just complete domination."

SOT, Vincent Collet, France coach: "For me it's not fair that one team have two days to recover and prepare even if they don't know the first day who will be the opponent. But they know it will be one of the others so they can start to prepare [for] both."
