BOS vs FRA Dream11: FIBA Men’s Qualifiers have begun and in a year, the World Cup will field the squads that make it through this window. The window has been divided into the Asia, Americas, Africa, and Europe windows with the Qualifiers lasting from November last year to the first quarter of the next year. In this game of the European leg, France is going to take on Bosnia
France comes into this game after defeating Czech Republic 95:60 in a game where five players scored in double figures, with Yabusele and Luwawu-Cabarot both scoring 16 each.
Meanwhile, Bosnia had a tough time against the physical Montenegro team, losing 69:88 despite a 20 points performance by John Roberson. France is tougher than Montenegro so will Bosnia stand even a crumb of chance here?

BOS vs FRA Dream11 FIBA Men’s Qualifiers Projections, Stats & Analysis
France is too loaded
With Gobert patrolling the middle, Yabusele at big Forward, and Luwawu-Cabarota at wing, the French team is loaded with elite defense and also great offense. The offense is aided by playmaker Thomas Huertel and shot-creator Evan Fournier who makes three of the five starters as NBA regulars. And this is not the full-strength French team, yet, they can be too good for most European squads. France forced 25 turnovers against Czech and limited them below 36% field goal.
Bosnia’s defense was terrible in the last game as the team allowed 50% from the field and Montenegro made 66.7% of their shots from the two-point range. Team’s Center Jusuf Nurkic is a well-known NBA inside player but even he couldn’t rescue the team. The last performance doesn’t bode well for Bosnia’s chances to advance to the next round and a match-up against France seems out of their hand.

FIBA Men’s Qualifiers Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Gobert is an elite defender, rebounder, and can also finish inside. He is an incredible player and can be in 16-22 points, 8-11 rebounds, and 1-3 blocks range. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Jusuf will need to much more than the above numbers to stall the French momentum but Gobert will be up in his sleeve. I believe he will be in 12-18 points, 7-11 rebounds, and 1-2 blocks range.
Yabusele is a famous European hooper and his physical tools were on full display during the last game. I believe he will be in 10-14 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-2 steals range here.
Roberson had a solid game against Montenegro but the French defense can affect his production in big ways. I believe he will be in 10-16 points, 4-7 assists, and 1-2 steals range.
Thomas is an incredible playmaker and a long-time presence at one-guard for France. I believe he will be in 8-12 points, 7-11 assists, and 3-5 rebounds range.
Musa has been the staple on the offensive end for Bosnia and will need to bring his A-game here for sure. I believe he will be in 13-18 points, 3-6 assists, and 3-5 rebounds range.
Timothe is a springy wing who can bring the heat on both ends. I believe he will be in 11-15 points range.
Miralem didn’t have an efficient night and that won’t get it done versus France for sure. I believe he will be in 6-10 points and 3-5 rebounds range.
Evan shot just 3/13 in the last game and for a year or so, his shot has been off whether it is the NBA or the international scene. I believe he will be in 11-17 points range.
Amar will need to do much better than the last game.
Vincent is a strong back-up Center. I believe he will be in 8-14 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
Atic can be a solid rebounding guard but his shooting can be up-and-down.
Elie can be a decent role player.
Lazic can give some solid minutes off the bench on the defensive end.
Amath can give decent minutes.
Emir can give solid rebounding.
