To me, this is quite shocking to say the least...

Argentina trailed most of the game, tied and took a 3pt lead in the 3rd, then trailed by 11, 3:50 left in the game. This is where it gets crazy. Lithuania leads 75-64, Argentina fought back to tie it at 75-75 with 1:34 left. Thereafter, neither team made a shot until Kleiza of Denver hit a 3 for Lithuania WITH 2 SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME. Delfino then TO, Argentina fouled Lithuania, but I thought intentional fouls are worth 2 shots and the ball. Lithuania hit 1 FT, and game ended with Manu heaving a 3 that is meaningless.

Kleiza is 3-3 on 3pt shooting, Manu is 6-17 overall, 1-7 on 3s.

Manu still is raw...=/

I saw some of this game, just kept checking every now and then on it, but I'll watch it all later since I recorded it on my DVR.

Frankly, I can't deny I'm a bit surprised as well. I guess Argentina isn't as good as most of us thought right now, but give credit to Lithuania as well.

Yeah I was playing my game and following the play-by-play on my other monitor, quite stunned when Lithuania scored the 3...until now, there's no mention of that thriller...

I couldn't remember the rankings exactly but when I checked, Argentina is no.2 =.="

Wonder how manu is feeling now....

Not too bad once he sees his amazing wife as well as remembers just how rich he is, but still, in all seriousness, I know. The guy is one of the most competitive folks you'll ever see. I'm sure it irks him.

She might not be the bombest thing in the world, but she's not exactly ugly by any standards either, at least in my opinion.
