by Bill Lea

Raul Neto scorched the nets for 21 points, on 9-for-10 shooting, to lead Brazil to a 85-65 win over Argentina in the Round of 16 at the 2014 FIBA World Cup. He added 2 assists, a rebound and a steal in 25 minutes for the Brazilian National team. 

Brazil advanced to face Slovenia on Wednesday in the Quarterfinals.

The Jazz acquired Neto in a 2013 Draft night trade with Atlanta after the Hawks selected the Brazilian with the 47th pick.
