Team USA was great once again and Kobe Bryant provided his best game of the Olympics in leading the team with 25 points on 10-16 shooting from the field.

The next game will be huge, Team USA faces a tough challenge with the Argentina team.

Key Matchups: Kobe guarding Ginobli on the perimeter. Lebron defending Scola and Melo defending Nocioni.

Prediction: Team USA has too much talent and fire power to be beaten, I think they will win by 20 points.

I think the US will this one pretty easily. Argentina is coming off a tough game with Greece and they are very tired. Plus if Nocioni will not be able to play then this should be a blowout.

Depends on Nocioni. If he can play without any problems, I'd say Argentina might give the U.S. team a little challenge.

I agree with bogdanrom. You have to remember that Argentina is a 5 man team. The rest of the team is a bunch of would be d-league players. The US should win this one very easily. In similar way they beat Australians but even more a blowout. Close for the first quarter, then the US shows its true colors and the real game begins.

I cant wait to see this one, I think Argetina has a chance to atleast challenge them, but I still think US will win by a good amount.

Totally agree. If Noc has his 3 point shot going, this game could come down to the wire.

You might be underestimating Spain a little bit just because U.S. blew them out during pool play :cool:

Do you have it for PS3? If so, we need to play sometime. I'm getting tired of scrubs quitting in the second quarter and somehow getting the win when I'm leading by 20+ points.

I played nba live 2005 on the game cube once... I never won (atleast I dont remember winning)

I'd usually lose by 20-50 pts

I just cant use that controller

Any news if Nocioni suffered a major injury??

I'm looking up stuff at Google but I can't seem to find news about Nocioni's injury.
