so if we win, does that go as 12 gold medals to the medal count table or just 1?

USA wins, but I hope it will be the hardest game for you in this olympics. It´s going to be harder than the previous game, anyway, so don´t expect a +37 swept. Spain has some tactical resources that didn´t use in that game. We didn´t show all of our cards. So my prediction is something betwen 10 and 20 points. Maybe 12.

And I have to admit that even if I know 100% that you will win, there is still a little bit of hope in the deepest of my heart. This hope is based on the fact that it will be decided in one game. Being USA the best team, it wouldn´t have any problem in a series. But in one just game the worst team can surprise the best one. Just like Atlanta beated the Celtics three times.

You know, it´s hard to listen to your brain and forget about the dreams.

go USA!!!

also tactical resources or not, they got spanked by team usa. no matter what kinda "tactical resources" they may bring, the U.S. will match it so they will have a +20 victory.

You're pretty green on Spain tactics, aren't you scissors? Before talking you should know something about Spain's coach - I guess you even don't know his name without searching for it in the Internet.

I think that the game won't be solved until the last quarter. Then, I can't say who'll win, but it'll be a tiny diference, less than 7 probably. I hope the refs to call some travels like these...

I think that's the general feeling in Spain. USA needs to win this one, is definitely the best team...but you can always dream a little bit.

Faith in our country? I have faith in basketball, and right now the best basketball players are the American players. If Spain won I wouldn't be so glad, I would be really disappointed with the USA team. It's time to show they're the best team and not just the best players, and if they lose with Kobe, LeBron, Wade and the rest of stars giving their best it's gonna mean a big loss of prestige that CAN'T happen. It's just a game but it's the game of the proud, USA can only be defeated by his own lack of discipline and mental strength.

USA 100 - 80 Spain

USA played their worst game against Argentina and still won by twenty.

USA has reached their goal and im very sure this team will not let this slip away. It will be impossible for Spain to win. Sorry Pau.

USA by 30+

Kobe and team USA win the gold.

USA hears their national anthem playing at the medal ceremony.

I just want to know if my Spanish friends who were talking all of that madness in a few other threads will come here and man up when this game is over.

I'll be here...win or lose.

For sure. It was dumb on NBC's part not to make the game live in the first place, there are many NBA and olymipc fans who want to watch this game live, it's the gold medal game! I'm glad they decided to switch it.

Oh, so that's how it's gonna be, refs are gonna keep it close I see. Kobe was fouled and that was NOT a foul on James.
