While the United States takes a week off from basketball to complete their essays on why Mason Plumlee is a good fit for Team USA, the rest of the world is still in action. Today, Nets sharpshooter Mirza Teletovic was at the center of it all during a EuroBasket Qualifier in London.
Teletovic poured in 25 points and 6 rebounds as Bosnia and Herzegovina held on to win 80-67.
BallinEurope, an ESPN Affiliate, said that Teletoivc “kept having his own way through the third quarter. Facing tough D? Nails the 3. Loses his handle? Recovers for the bucket and the foul.”

Neither Bosnia and Herzegovina nor Britain will be participating in this month’s 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain, but this is a reassuring sign for Nets fans nonetheless. Team USA will begin defending their crown, with or without Plumlee, on August 30th when they take on Finland.
