Former Boston Celtics forward Juancho Hernangomez saved his best game of the European Basketball Championship for last, helping the Spanish National Team win EuroBasket gold with an 88-76 victory over the French National Team and a trio of former Celtics.

Hernengomez put up an impressive 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals in just over 26 minutes of game time, shooting 9-of-11 from the field, a red-hot 7-of-9 from beyond the arc, and a perfect 2-of-2 from the stripe. On the other side of the court, ex-Celtics shooting guard Evan Fournier led the French National Team’s silver-medal effort with 23 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal.

Boston big man alum Guerschon Yabusele added another 13 points, 2 boards, and 6 assists, and former Celtics center Vincent Poirier chipped in 4 more points, 1 point, and 1 assist, but it was not enough to get the French National Team the gold.
