So if you guys didn't know, anris is participating in the 2009 european's world championships... last year he did GREAT! we saw that he developed a baby hook... saw a post move or two... and he dominated the stat sheets.... this year i hope we see a lot more improvement... they just played against russia and lost by double digits... he didnt do too well in terms of numbers... i think its 8 point and 6 rebounds or something like that... here's the box score...

Turiaf did a lot better against Germany:

15 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocks, well done :)

14 rbs for Turiaf!

Well done, I'm guessing career high.

Btw the next game should be a "hum dinger" as our centres do battle. Latvia v France.

I think this season it's time for him to step up big time. You came into the league young, you were really really skinny, getting used to the pace of the Pro level. no more excuses, it's time to do some damage.

I know, I know. he avg a double double. I say BS though. On a team where he is pretty much the only rebounder, and on a team that get's as many possessions per game as the warriors, he should be at like 15-15 (these are inflated stats remember). he works hard there's no denying that, but last year, he missed some real easy baskets, And I felt like every part of his game just took a step back.

this year, I want to see a free throw shot from a person that looks like they are being paid millions and millions of dollars to play basketball. there's no excuse for a shot that bad after being a PRO for half a decade.

The two big things that have been keeping his game down - 1) he only goes left, 2) he can't shoot. time to get rid of at least one of those by the end of the season.

Another thing that hurts Andris is being called for BS fouls. He gets taken off the floor a lot for clean blocks.

LAT 51:60 FRA. Low scoring, defensive game.
Biedrins 6+20, 4 fouls in 36 minutes
Turiaf 0+5, 3 fouls in 12 minutes
Kaspars Kambala (LAT) outplayed Ronny. Turiaf couldn't get his shot going while Biedrins were guarding him. Andris had a bad offensive game (except one nice reverse dunk with a foul (of course he didn't make the free throw)), FG: 3-10 and FT: 0-3.
