10 minutes away with 14 points to play with. Kobe-Wade-Paul-Bron-Bosh to start the 4th please.

It's not the refs.

USA shooting way too many contested shots from outside. Pretty dumb when you can dominate inside.

Just a case of being lazy.

This should be a 40+ point lead right now.

very dirty...but I have to admit, I have nothing against dirty play. I want to win at any cost and if dirty play is necessary I would do it too if possible to get away with it.

USA plays pretty soft up front so its the only key to beat them. Scola abused them after all.

Man Ginobli and Scola are some dirty mothers, tons of falling and flopping and elbows, I hate these guys and their style of play, so ugly.

It was ugly in the 2nd when the USA fell in love with the 3pt shot and didn't play very good defense, and you could see how patient the Argentines were in their zone. Huge difference in the way the USA came out and attacked that zone in the 3rd. When the (re)Dream Teamers came out to play ball the right way, it was over for all intents and purposes. Of course they had to play hard to the last minute, but as long as they stayed in the attack mode, the Argentines were not going to come back all the way. Too bad Ginobili got hurt and Nocioni was hobbling. Them's the breaks.

Did anybody see the graph that compared the average minutes per game for the starting lineups? Kobe and Lebron lead the USA at 23.9 minutes per game. So while the Olympics are an intense sprint, the USA guys are not wearing themselves out that much. Only one more game to go and no one has gotten hurt. The stars from the other countries are the ones that have problems because their teams ride them into the ground.

So when will the Gold medal be on tv in the west coast? The online feed crapped out on me for the 4th quarter this morning. So I think I will switch to TV.

He was getting battered and bruised defending bigger guys like Scola. Taking quite a few elbows into the chest. He got really pissed after awhile.

Yeah, they were playing dirty, but it always seems likes Anthony wants to fight. He was about to rush Oberto or Scola, but Kidd pushed him out of the way.
