Kinda cray to pick up 2 fouls against a team that you'll blow out. Oh well.

Lithuania looks pretty good right now.

Lot of bad habits they rely on...and if they aren't allowed to play physical D, they can get in trouble.

Lot of selfish, 1on1 ball, jacking up threes...funny part was Kobe willingly deferring to LeBron.

I think Coach K is a little overrated...I see very little coaching, and the inmates basically run the asylum.

Coach K is totally overrated , he should start 5 guards for the next game ... funny each time they played small they looked bad since the start of the exhibition games , yet he keeps playing more and more smallball ...

Lithuania had a great gameplan on both ends though ... no easy baskets for the US , packed the paint , PNR and exploit the mismatch on the other end

He took over when needed ... only consistent players on Team USA are Lebron , Melo and KD ( a total liability on D though) ... all others players have huge ups and downs from one game to another .. Kobe looked terrible today on both ends

Lithuania played a great, well organized, team game....they had a bunch of NBAers in there too. Not a disorganized joke squad like Nigeria.

Kleiza was just thrashing Durant down in the post and I was surprised Coach K didn't put Chandler/Melo back in the game. While the lineup he had to close out the game is great offensively, it becomes a big liability of defense when an opposing big man knows how to operate in the post.

Kobe needs to stay away from the Brazilian Women's Soccer Team or whatever extracurricular activities he has going on... 7-28 is not acceptable on Team USA with that many other scorers out there.

edit: sorry, read stats before watching game on replay... Thought that seemed odd.

Kobe shot 11-26 for the first 4 games... Where did you get 7-28 from?
