France led 5-2 early but Alexis Ajinca had problems containing Krstic, who scored 10 points in the first quarter in building a 17-11 Serbia lead. Boris Diaw scored a pair of buckets before Nando De Colo's buzzer-beating score to bring France to within 19-17 after one quarter.
France started the second quarter on a 12-7 run as Kristic was resting on the bench. With Kristic back on the floor, the Serbs outscored France 12-2 over the final 3:52 of the second quarter to take a 38-31 halftime lead.
Bogdan Bogdanovic started the fourth quarter with a three-point play and added a three-pointer to extend the lead to 14 points, 70-56. France crept back closer, bringing the deficit back to 72-65. But Nedovic knocked down a huge three-ball and then Ajinca missed two foul shots on the ensuing possession and France's comeback had lost its life.
Ajinca, De Colo, Diaw and Nicolas Batum each had 12 points to pace France.
Serbia won Group E and will move onto the quarterfinals along with Lithuania, France (3-2) and Ukraine.
