In last game in group D on Olympic qualifying tournament in Manila, New Zealand will play against France.
New Zealanders have a surprise by beating the host country to this Olympic Qualifying Tournament Philippines (89-80).

With Tony Parker and other NBA players like Evan Fournier, Boris Diaw, Joffrey Lauvergne etc, France will big favorite in this game. I think that they will make a good game and win with more than 15 points.
