I think I am seeing a trend by the USA team, 1st quarter is always tough for them to get going defensively, but after that their quickness and speed take their toll on the other team.

JSM is always on the gameday thread, just wait to the regular season. Not every single member gets on the gameday thread but the normal regulars always do.

Really? I'd find it really hard to type while focusing 100% on a Laker game.

Halfcourt offense is pretty ugly right now, against Spain's stifling zone it might just be worse. I've got confidence in Coach K and the team to get past it though.

Kobe gets the steal, sick oop to Howard. We're gonna be seeing that next season with a certain young big man.

If Drew is awake watching this, which I doubt. Maybe he's tivo'ing it. He has to be excited.

If Bron would have gotten that one to go down, that would have been nasty!

Or if you're really skilled you can squeeze one in during an out of bounds play before the time they reach halfcourt.
