Best quarter of the Championships....the defense at one stage was absolutely awesome to watch.

Maintain this level and the starters can rest early.

Very quickly went from playing the best ball of the Games to playing the worst. Got to stop fouling.

Mike Redd would be useful about now.

The international game really exposes who has skills and who gets by on raw athletic ability.

What a huge turnaround!! No calls now. They aren't kidding that the refs are not consistent.

USA passing along the perimeter is not helping. they need to take it in.

DAMN!!

Horrible second quarter.

At the beginning of the game, the announcers mentioned how Argentina never plays zone and then after the first, they were talking about how down Argentina must be since they were supposed to be USA's first test but they were being blown out and two of their best players were injured.

Then Argentina starts playing zone and turns everything around. :bang:

The fellas have to adjust to it though. Dribble drive under control and move the ball better.

On defense, they just need to help each other properly and not in a way that looks like they are trying to pick up steals.

Argentina came back in the 2nd quarter without Manu. FOCUS USA!!!

Pretty pathetic display going on here.

Argentina is flopping all over the court. How do teams take pride in that? :disagree:
