Tomas Satoransky Has Turned Into *THE* Player to Watch at the FIBA World Cup

Chicago Bulls

Yup, he did it again.

Tomas Satoransky has turned into THE player to watch at the FIBA World Cup, most recently leading the Czech Republic national team to its third victory.

You certainly have my attention!

Also, when Windhorst says “wrecked,” he means it. The new Bulls point guard tallied his best stat line of the tournament with a 20pts, 7reb, 9ast and 3stl night. He’s now shooting a 45.5 percent clip from the field and 50 percent from behind the arc (Note: he hasn’t hiked up too many three-pointers thus far, but he’s 6-12).

For a better look at just how well-rounded Satoransky has been, here’s his stat line from all of the previous four games. Let me know if you need a fan to cool off after reading:

  • vs. Team USA – 17pts, 5reb, 2ast (also shot 7-13 on the night)
  • vs. Japan – 15pts, 6reb, 7ast, 3stl
  • vs. Turkey – 11pts, 7reb, 7ast, 2stl
  • vs. Brazil 20pts, 7reb, 9ast and 3stl

I don’t know about you, but I sure do like everything about that. The assists numbers particularly act as a breath of fresh air knowing the Bulls are in desperate need of a true facilitator. Also, it’s worth mentioning, Satoransky has played the 9th-highest amount of minutes per game during this tournament at 32.4, so to say he’ll be well conditioned for Training Camp in a couple of weeks is probably an understatement.

Anyway, feast your eyes on the highlights from Satoransky’s latest masterpiece.

You love to see it, and Keith Smith, I’d have to agree.
