Made me mist the first half.

Recap por favor.


LTU can't dribble the ball. When USA gambles for steals, we get beat. Scoring is coming easy Howard has plenty of easy buckets. Kobe is shooting well, the 2nd unit cannot play as good defense as the first unit.

Pick and Roll defense just got 10x worse. It was pretty good in the first half.

Good unselfish play. Melo hands it off to Bron for the two handed dunk.

USA cannot attack in zone, and cannot defend her, only Kobe. Playing this way Spain can win him) easy.

Lebron, Carmelo and Howard they do travels with normes FIBA. Is scandalous, as the foults that doing with the hands and that allow them to go out to the counterattack.

No idea how Melo got that ball, horrible pass by Bron.

Melo has a nose for the basket. He's always in the right place at the right time.
