    Phoenix Suns point guard Leandro Barbosa missed two free throws with six seconds left Tuesday and Turkey escaped with a 73-71 win over Brazil at the world basketball championship.Barbosa had hit on two free throws 20 seconds earlier to pull Brazil, which had trailed for most of the game, to within a point at 70-69.

    But after back-to-back time-outs were called and with the game on the line, Barbosa knocked both free throws off the rim.

    After a series of free throws by each team in the remaining seconds, Turkey emerged with the two-point win and advanced to the second round following its third straight win in Group C.
