2011 Eurobasket: Zaza Pachulia Leads Georgia Over Belgium 81-59

Zaza Pachulia scored 16 points in 21 minutes as team Georgia knocked off Belgium in preliminary action at the 2011 Eurobasket. Georgia grabbed an early 20-11 advantage after one quarter of play and never looked back despite Pachulia being limited due to foul difficulties. Pachulia went 4 of 7 from the floor and did most of his work from the free throw line where he made 8 of 9. 

Georgia hit 58 percent of its shots and held a sizable 38-21 rebounding advantage over Belgium. Georgia's defense helped force Belgium into 17 turnovers in the game. 

Georgia will be back in action tomorrow when they take on Russia. The game tips off at 8:30 a.m. and can be seen live on ESPN3.com.
