Should be an easy one for Spain.

Although looking at the notable missing list from France, boy would this team be darn good if those players showed up!! :speechless:

France was the team I expected to send Spain into #2 spot :/
It's terrible how "naked" they are now

That list of notable missing from France is horrible. Pity, they would have been a favorite. Spain here.

This game is currently on NBATV for US viewers. Too bad the announcer is really annoying.

France hangs in there, their defense really gives Spain problems, but Spain seems to push a litle harder now, but still only up by 6.

Argentina struggles against Germany. Germany leads by 3 at halftime. i'm switching between the two Games at the moment.

France up by 1 with about 4 min to go interesting, Spain really struggles to score.

wow Spain shooting like crap and France making all their shots...Spain needs to push the ball a little harder instead of using half court sets most of the time...

I agree, the execution in the Halfcourt doesn't look good and they have guys that can run the floor. Ouch that 3 Pointer hurt spain France up by 5.

uh Spain looses their first Game, France got nervous in the end but the lead was to big. Spain really didn't look good. But I think they will improve in the next games and still are the 2nd best Team in tourney.

Losing to France won't instantly make you 2nd (or 4th) in the group. There's also Lithuania who can beat France and even Spain. That could make you meet the Americans in quarters instead of the semis :p

that would be delirious.

We still got something to get back to tem for making us finish with NO medal in 2004 even if we won 11 of the 12 gmes in the olympics.

So being 4th and leaving them with NO medal after ebign unbeten in first phase woudl be cool.

Man that play by play guy grates on me. Good game though, France really pulled through even without all those NBA guys.

You need to become 3rd to meet them in Quarters.
1st you meet them in Semis
2nd or 4th you meet them only in Final

That is if they are 1st as well, which looks very likely

I know man that guy was annoying as heck.

Anyways, I think this game shows the weakness of this current Spain squad. They lack a go-to guy down the stretch. Last couple of years they had Pau Gasol who they'd just throw the ball to and let him go to work.

What I saw during the last 6 minutes of this game was a bunch of tentative guys who were reluctant to take the game into their own hands.

On the side note, I hope JCN is ok.
