Les Bleus will be hungrier than most, having missed out on recent EuroBasket, World Cup and Olympic glory by the finest of margins. Rudy Gobert and Evan Fournier have been in frightening form ahead of the tournament, and good thing too, as being drawn into the same group as possibly the best Canadian team ever means they’ll need to hit the ground running in order to secure as favorable a route as possible through the 2nd round and knockouts.
Spain and Serbia are unknown quantities by comparison, with both nations missing their respective best players. Any side would struggle to fill the void left by Jokic or Rubio, but the Eagles and La Roja are far from one-man teams.
Even by his standards, Luka Doncic has been playing like a man possessed since gaining the Slovenia captaincy, while Germany are sweating over the fitness of star man Dennis Schroder, not least because they share a group with an outstanding Australia setup.

A VPN makes it look as if you’re surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you’re in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
For instance, a Spaniard who’s currently in the U.S. could watch FIBA Basketball World Cup live streams free on RTVE even though they’re not in Spain.
