I think Team USA needs to play Granger more during crunch time. Yesterday vs Brazil he had a look on his face that he wants to play and close this team out. I think he should be given the chance to do that and they need to play players who are composed and has killer instinct during crunch time. Billups has the most killer instinct next is Granger and next is Durant.

Crunch Time Lineup

C Odom
Pf Durant
Sf Granger
Sg Rose
Pg Billups

Steph Curry is a candidate

Odom needs to be sitting during crunch time. All he does is grab boards, and that's not enough to make up for his terrible decisions with AND without the ball.

C - Kevin Love
PF - Kevin Durant
SF - Andre Iguodala
SG - Eric Gordon
PG - Chauncey Billups

Iggy has to be in there, and I would honestly rather stick Rudy Gay in the five before Granger. The last time Granger was out on the court, he was rubbish...spotting up for threes and looked scared and confused on the defensive end, definitely not the Granger we see in the NBA.

Odom is not crunchtime-y, he's a good player during the game because he grabs more rebounds than any other player but when comes the time to make good decisions, he's not the first player coming to mind...
I think Rose, KD and Billups have the most killer instinct. Iggy is more clutch than Rudy Gay but Rudy is playing better on the US Team. Granger hasn't sold me yet :hmm: He doesn't look like Indy-self.

C - Love or Chandler
PF - KD
SF - Rudy or Iggy
SG - Rose
PG - Billups

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

I don't quite trust Love yet he is young at least Odom has won 2 chips. Maybe Durant at center?

Well, there aren't true C or PF this way but they all are good shooters, from behind the arc too. And KD, Rudy and Iggy can get some rebounds. But we couldn't handle teams with a good frontcourt like Spain. They'd beat us in the paint.

Love again proved why he's the best big on the team today. Odom doesn't even compare.

Love or Chandler should def start. Odom should now be the 6th man. Also Rudy Gay needs to start for A.I. Westbrook has been messing up as well, overall the lineup needs some shuffling this isn't the Exhibitions anymore lol...
