Embarrassing performance by Team USA. Yes they still won, yes give Spain credit, but for the amount of star & firepower Team USA has even without Kobe, Wade, Bron, Melo, etc and Spain not having Pau, there's no reason why the game should be this close. This is more like a loss than a win in a way. They need A LOT of work to do.

I think that's a little harsh considering that this summer is the first time that many of the guys on this team are playing international ball.

I guess 18 or 19.

Bad game, too close. We could've lost this one if Spain didn't mess around with the ball during the last seconds.
D-Rose is more and more clutch. Who wants to see him in a Laker uni? :rock:

Give me Rose, Durant or D-Will on the Lakers once Kobe's ready to hang 'em up and I'd be going crazy.

Coach K said Rondo was getting the day off. Either Kevin Love or Granger is gonna get cut, that is for sure...

Hmmm Westbrook has been playing pretty good. Gordon as well. I guess Curry is the odd man out. Btw is everything alright with Love? I know he banged his head pretty hard against the floor last game against Lithuania...

I think Curry will get cut, while Westbrook and Gordon will stay. Kevin Love is definitely going to say, he's perfect for FIBA ball. It's a matter of him being completely healthy.

Box score up now at:

http://www.usabasketball.com/photos/10_mwc_exh_3_box.pdf

“Before we talk about the outside (players), Lamar Odom should be our starting center. He’s finally into shape I think to play at this level. Curry has been out so we wanted to give him a chance and we already know what Rondo and Granger can do, and Love was out. The doctor wanted to keep him out because of hitting his head and because it’s back-to-back, so that was a precaution. That was our plan tonight, just to take a better look at our team.”


http://www.usabasketball.com/mens/national/10_mwc_exh_3.html

For those wondering why those 3 didn't get playtime. Love would've been good against Gasol with Chandler in foul trouble and Odom being pushed around.
