I pick USA by 15 points.

Kobe scores most points

Wade get most assist

Bosh most rebound

Lebron best defensive player.

The Olympic basketball this year hasn't been that good. So far only a couple of really close high level games.

I'm praying for a close game, though I think USA will crush them

I'm definitely hoping for a close game and possibly an upset, but I'm positive the USA will thrash Argentina

I agree.

Hopefully not another blowout.

I want it to be more entertaining.

Argentina does not have ANY bench, therefore as Nocioni, Ginobili and Scola CANT play at top level for 40 minutes there is no way they upset USA.

We have to face it, Next time Usa fails will be in 08 in the World cup, once they have gone back to "Bad Habits".

Only thing left to see is if Lithuania or Spain are able to finish in less than 20 points defeat.

Argentina's weak bench will kill them, waves of fresh defenders will tire or get ginobli & their stars in foul trouble and it will be over.
Personally, I want to see a tough close game.
The last thing I want to see is another blowout and showtime.
We have a great team, I would like to see them really tested.

Yeah, it should be at 8 AM Mountain, but check NBCOlympics.com and their online coverage/schedule just to make sure.

The USA will win by 20 points or more. Kobe and Lebron will play good defense on Manu and Scola. Look for a huge scoring game from Wade and the Howard and Bosh combo on the inside.

thats not fair, this forum already has a USA vs Argentina thread

I say when the Olympics are over, move all the Olympic Basketball threads to the FIBA forum... make it seem more active

The US isn't going to have a game in this Olympics that is within 20 points. This game should be closer than the one on Sunday though.

You're on delay.

I hate it when the games are delayed, because it's hard to avoid hearing about or seeing the outcome before you actually watch.
