GB defeated by France
Great Britain were brought back down to earth in their second EuroBasket 2013 match with a 88-65 defeat by France in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
GB opened their campaign with a 75-71 overtime victory over Israel on Wednesday, which ended a run of six straight defeats, but an injury-hit side were powerless to stop their superior opponents on Thursday.
San Antonio Spurs point guard Parker proved his class with 16 points and five assists in a superb all-round performance, while Nicolas Batum was the French side's top scorer with 17 points.
France opened up a 26-14 lead at the end of the first quarter and, while GB narrowed the deficit by half-time, they were powerless to stop another onslaught.
A 26-11 third quarter saw France move 71-48 ahead, making the final period of the game almost a training session.
Daniel Clark, carrying an ankle injury into this encounter, top-scored with 16 points - all of which came in the first half - for GB, who will attempt to bounce back against Belgium on Friday.
