China is playing well at the moment.

EDIT: @LDR Spain won 72-59, Gasol played well. and yeah Sun Yue is flying around on the court, the whole team looks pumped.

I'm rooting for China. How unexpected would it be if they got to the semi-final?

It would be very unexpected. Since Lithuania took a five point lead in the beginning, China makes a basket to get closer, then make an error on defense or a turnover on offense, and the game goes back in Lithuania's favor.

And what just happened in the last 30 seconds pretty much explains what I wrote in the post above this one.

China's guards are pretty bad. They can shoot but thats pretty much it. They can't handle ball pressure, have poor court vision, and can't penetrate.

and when they find a way to penetrate, they throw the ball away or in the hands of a Lithuanian defender.

I want China to win as well. China has too many turnovers though... They try to rush it too much and create too much on their own. They need to be more patient.

Well this was bound to happen. China can't keep up with the ball movement on the three point line, and Lithuania is starting to make the shots. Good effort by China, but it's not enough. Also, great job by the Chinese crowd for providing a great atmosphere for their team to play in.

Manu is a bad boy.

Anyone else watching the Argentina vs Greece game?

Spain-Lithuania... what a game!

Tied in the 4th. Lithuania is shooting 3s like crazy. They might win this.

Spain wins. Pau had a great game, scored most points, and played excellent D down the stretch.

That Pau guy is a great finisher around the rim. I wish Mitch would find a way to steal him from Memphis! :bang:
