Men's Preliminary Round

Postby E.T Gasol on Tue Aug 12, 2008 5:35 am

Spain not lose by 15 points during a game since 2005. O_O

Spain today has played one of the worst matches since these players. are only Pau Gasol and Rudy Fernandez (is my favourite player, will play very well in the NBA) played well, and ricky in defense.

All teams have bad days, the important thing is to save juice and spain at the end as it should.

Good basketball yesterday and today, rally good. Croatia-Russia, then Spain-China.

Germany lost against Greece, Dirk was defended well.

Argentina is schooling Australia now. It's live on nbaolympics.com

You can't compare the Celtics interior defense (specially Perkins) with the Chinese interior defense. Besides, it seems that Pau really needed some rest after his ankle injury.

Spain beats Germany in a low scoring game: 72-59.

Too bad we had to trade Marc Gasol, dude is really big, and could probably help us off the bench behind Bynum and his brother.

I was also watching some water polo games: Croatia-Germany and USA-Serbia. Man, Water polo has to be one of the hardest sports ever invented. It's crazy.

yes, i :man10:

seeing those defending spain? That is what I wanted to say the other day, against U.S.A did not leave them with such intensity, because they are not.

Pau Gasol is a monster en 1º half: 14 pts and 5 reb. And Jimenez (injured against U.S.A) is the best defender and rebounds, a lesson all parties, is amazing for me.

Spain always gets to play well when you start the real competition. this is Spain, I date of the USA does not recognize.

We are playing awfully. Can't create open shot, can't penetrate, pau gasol is looking like prime shaq in the post. Spain is not so good, the problem is we are so bad. I hope we will change something. It's -11 , but it's not over.
