French national team star Evan Fournier explained why you can’t compare the back-to-back matches in the EuroBasket and the NBA, via Eurohoops:

“It’s the EuroBasket and we have back-to-backs. Back-to-backs are very hard. And back-to-backs in the NBA and back-to-back in the EuroBasket is two different things. There’s less games here so it’s more intense. When you play at 20:30 you usually sleep around 3:00. It’s a real big challenge. To be fair, it’s the same thing for everyone. It would be great if FIBA changed that to allow us to have more rest in between games,” Fournier said.
