On the bright side, Lassiter was scrappy on the defensive end, and even received a vicious elbow from the Iranians which left a cut on his left eyebrow.
Meanwhile, Cabagnot still made the right play for his team and was still an effective playmaker.
Let’s hope that they’ll redeem themselves against Qatar on Monday, September 17.
