Boston alum Vincent Poirier, Celtics forward Danilo Gallinari among standouts in France-Italy FIBA friendly




 

Teams in Europe are playing exhibition games ahead of their looming Eurobasket qualifying games, and a pair of familiar faces to fans of the Boston Celtics were putting up some solid numbers on opposing teams on Friday, August 12 in Bologna, Italy according to new reporting from Eurohoops.

New Celtics forward Danilo Gallinari managed to chip in 13 points to the Italian National Team in a 78-77 losing effort as they faced 2020's Olympic silver medalists in the French National Team. On the other side of the court, former Boston big man Vincent Poirier put up an impressive 14 points and 11 rebounds to help France secure the friendly win.

Teams are getting ready for FIBA qualifying games for the next World Cup, which will include Celtics center Al Horford for his native Dominican Republic, and are slated to kick off at the end of the month of August.
