After broadcasting exactly zero Olympic b-ball games in Japan so far, they finally will at least air the gold medal game. So denbutsu is happy.

I hope each and every player on the U.S. team will step up and have a great game. :clap: We should be able to win this handily, but I don't doubt for a second that Spain isn't going down without a fight.

Yeah, rico, been living here in Japan for 12 yrs. So it's 3:00 in the afternoon here - which for the Olympics is great in terms of time zones, but since Japan sucks at basketball they don't show the games here - it's all judo, swimming, badminton, etc. I'm just happy I get to see the gold medal game. :nod:

I can already tell this one will go down to the final quarter. Rubio looks damn impressive and Spain seems to have a whole new level of confidence and energy to them. LeBron and Kobe being in foul trouble won't help either.

Outside of Rubio all of their starters are in the game right now. Where playing all bench players. I see this game being close for a while, but our depth will prevail in the end. (IMO)

Conor
08-24-2008, 02:44 AM
Ricky Rubio is hurting. I hope it's not serious. I want Spain to be at full health (besides Calderon).

Me too. Beating Argentina without Manu and a healthy Noc wasn't nearly as fulfilling as it could have been with them healthy, and if we beat a Spain team playing a third string PG all night, it won't have same feeling as it should.

This is just terrible for both sides. 15 total fouls with 1 min remaining in the 1st qtr.

Many players are going to foul out at this rate.

I guess that is in the US's favor though, because of their tremendous depth.

We need to get Kobe & LeBron a few easy buckets before either can pick up anymore fouls. If they can go into the second half with only 2 fouls they should both be in great shape.

D-Wade has been picking up the slack for both early on.

The US players don't swat at those balls that are rolling around the rim.

It's too bad it isn't instinctive for them to do that, considering there athleticism & jumping ability is superior to that of other team's. They could save at least a few buckets each game if they did it.

Spain sure is putting up a hell of a fight. Kudos to them for that.

I still see us pulling away pretty soon here, though. There should come a point in the 3rd quarter where the U.S. really starts dictating the terms of the game. Overall, though, a much better battle than I'd been expecting.

But ARMIN, you're right - we really have to step up defensively. Can't keep letting Spain put up 30+ point quarters.

I think it would be nice if we could come out and shut these guys down, but if we don't, where still going to win the game. Lebron and Kobe where both in foul trouble before the game even started, Spain has been getting every bounce, and they've been making shots they had NO business making, and we still have an 8 point lead.

True, but we can't think that way. Remember Villanova v. Georgetown. Every bounce went there way for the whole entire game. They shot 85% from the field and only won the game by 1.

Team USA shouldn't have the mentality of saying, "well, Spain has been making every shot and have been getting lucky so they are due to miss." They still have to play great defensively in the second half because, sometimes, these teams have games where every bounce falls there way and all these shots that they had "no business making" actually go in...
