Yao usually does better than Dwight in head-to-head matchups I'm pretty sure. If so the USA could struggle against China's size.

I say it will be more like 8-15 point range of victory in favor of U.S.A. China's size will give us problems sometimes.

I would say its going to be at least 30...China has only one good player->Yao, who is not even in good shape right now (anyone who has seen him play recently would know this.) Yi is soft and Lebron can shut him down and Wang Zizi is not good...there is a reason why he did not make it in the NBA...and the guards for China are not even in the same league as the guards in big d1 schools or guards in the nbdl...i think its gonna be like an aau game in the end with the U.S. routing them.

If Yao is healthy and shows up it will be a 10 to 15 point game.

If Dwight gets in foul trouble, then the U.S. is pretty screwed. Dwight can't guard Yao to begin with, but damn....if he has to go to the bench.......

outside of Yao...China has nobody so i'm not suprised at the prediction.

US' backcourt >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> China's backcourt...no competition. so while China's frontcourt might have an advantage over the US with Yao...the gap in talent and experience between US' backcourt and China's backcourt is waaaaaay too much. I mean...c'mon..the last time China and the US play against each other, China's guards couldn't bring the ball pass the half court line...the only way for China to get the ball pass the half court line was to pass the ball to Yao mid court and have Yao pass the ball to the other side.

That makes no sense. Yao can DOMINATE Howard and we will DOMINATE the other four positions plus bench play. There is no way Yao is beating the U.S.A team. US wins easily from 15-30 points. Definitely a statement game as well for the US.

25 point win. China's guards are a mess. If we pressure them all over the floor, they will have a ton of turnovers. The ONLY teams to worry about are Spain, and Argentina. I think we win those as well, but we have to be on our game

15-20 if Yao plays well; 30-40 if Yao gets some problems.

is Yi Jianlian playing?
but i think USA will win by 10-15 points

The U.S. is going to honestly massacre them...Yao isn't even 100% and is not in good shape...keep in mind that he already is the slowest player in the NBA. The guards are going to be the biggest problem for the Chinese and the fact that nobody on their team can match up with Lebron or Melo...

30 pts at least!

I say 20-30 pt range. Unless Yao just heats it up. Then it'll be 10-15 range.

I wasnt saying I think China is going to win, just saying that US will get demolished even worse by Yao, if Howard gets in foul trouble.

I actually think Yi will do good as well.

i think we might win by 20. but i wouldnt be suprised if we have a tough time with yao, but then again he just came off of an injury.

Are you people serious!?!?!?!?!?! The US is going to win by however much they want to win by. Yao won't dominae Dwight, he might have a better game, but won't dominate. Even if Yao has like 40pts, 10rbs, 4asts, Dwight can put up 15pts, 5rbs, 2asts and that means the frontcourt of Kobe, Wade, Lebron etc. just have to outscore the Chinese frontcourt by like 25. They could easily outscore that frontcourt by 70 or 80 and the chances of Yao dominating Dwight that badly are incredibly slim.

USA by a wide margin

China started out on fire, but then started missing all their open 3's. I was actually thinking it was gonna be close.

China's backcourt sucks. They always have trouble when they try to cross over the halfcourt line. Any kind of trap, it's game over for them. They almost always turn the ball over.
