Jose Manuel Calderon will not be able to play the final except surprise last minute. :panic2: very important player :panic2: any pressure to ricky rubio with 17 years.

Spain for the finals is already a triumph with silver, gold a dream. I hope that Spain put more game than in the previous match, where I did not give 100%.

Good luck, friends.

I just hope neither of our guys get hurt.

Secondly, if Kobe knocks Pau over, he should help him up next time.

USA by 22. Gasol brothers will have a field day, but their guards and wing players will play terribly.

USA probably wins, but by less then 20. This should be their toughest game.

Gasol will dominate though. :man12: Go Pau! Go Kobe!

If Calderron isn't playing, then it's too much to ask Navarro and Rubio to carry the full PG load. They'll get run into the ground. Rubio could not stay with Chris Paul in the last game. Also the Spaniards are not as physical as the Argentines except for Marc Gasol, that plays into the Americans' hands. I'll predict another 20 point win.

We need to get this confirmed!! NBCOlympics.com is confusing me for the Gold medal game.. don't know when the game will be shown on t.v

Edit: Ya know what guys, I think the game will be shown on t.v. at 2:30 AM Sunday for Pacific time zoners..

Here's how I'm reading it:

2:30 AM- NBC
5:00 AM- USA

on the west coast, olympics coverage on NBC is from 11:30 pm to 4 am on saturday. my channel guide says that its gonna be showing the gold medal game. im guessing its gonna be live since if it were to start at 2:30 am, it would go on until 4:30 am.

Dammit man, my guide says the same thing.. 11:30 PM Saturday night it lists that the gold medal game will be shown.. don't know what time though between 11:30 and 4:30 AM. This SUCKS.. somebody shed some light.

i believe on the west coast it will be delayed so we watch at 2:30 also. but if you have directv then you can watch it live on channel 754.

i could be wrong about the delayed thing but the directv is right.

1st Prediction) US takes the lead by 10 in the first, lets it slip away in the 2nd, drops 40 in the 3rd quarter, 30 in the 4th and wins by 25.

2nd Prediction) Kobe leads the 40 point 3rd quarter with 15

If you have directv, you can press the red interactive button on your remote while watching NBC to see a listing of all game times and when they'll be showing and on what channel.
