Nic Batum and France crumbled late, falling to Spain, 66-59 in the men’s basketball Olympic quarterfinals. It was kind of an embarrassing win for Spain, as it struggled scoring but held France to a 6-point 4th quarter. France’s Nic Batum shot just 3-of-12 in a frustrating loss (teammate Tony Parker broke his googles after the game). With less than :30 left and the outcome decided, Batum took a full swing with a closed fist and punched Juan Carlos Navarro of Spain directly in the testicles.

Update: Batum is going to own the nut punch. Wow.

Batum also feels that Spain may have laid down for Brazil.

Batum said he believes that Spain tanked final preliminary game against Brazil to face France in quarterfinals.
