Joffrey Lauvergne's free throw with 1.1 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter lifted France over Serbia 74-73 during the second day of the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

France (1-1) trailed for nearly the entire Group A meeting, but timely three-pointers from Edwin Jackson, Antoine Diot and Charles Kahudi kept the French close throughout the second half.

Boris Diaw and Nicolas Batum again struggled beyond the arc, combining to shoot 1-of-7 from distance. However, Diaw offset his porous start with a game-tying layup in the final minute, and he finished the contest with four points, five rebounds and five assists.

Miroslav Raduljica tallied a game-high 21 points and seven rebounds, but it wasn't enough for the Serbian (1-1) squad that shot 4-of-18 from three-point range.

Though Bogdan Bogdanovic managed 12 points, he was largely ineffective after eight quick first-quarter points. Nemanja Bjelica chipped in 11 more off the bench.
