Maric & Andersen are the only players that are really worth it for the Australian team.

Interesting match up with Scola & Oberto in the paint.

Maric will eat Oberto alive, while it'll be nice to see Scola Vs Andersen like the old times

Oops never mind, I must have been thinking about that other game. :o

But still, Jordan just got beat by Angola pretty hard so I don't think we should have a problem.

Delfino is just not feeling it, he hasn't made a single three. But Scola continues to be beast.

Damn it, every time we catch up they pull away again. Who is this Ingles guy? He is torching us.

Down by 4 going into the 4th quarter, put ourselves in good position to try to win.

Wow that game was way too close for me, both games for us so far have been way closer than I originally thought. Still, at least we got the win and Scola was simply dominant.

When they lost the ball with 3 secs to go and up by 2 I almost had an heart attack.

Had lots of money riding on a Argentinian win. I thought they would win easy.
