I was shocked that know one had made a thread on this game, so I decided to make this one.

GO TEAM USA :patriot:

Way to much 1 on 1 in this game so far by the USA.

I can't stand that announcer who keeps telling the audience, but he is right.

Patrick Mills carved up Team USA's defense for a few possessions there.

Kobe about to scrap???? He and some dude got in a little shoving/verbal match and Bron had to get between them.

That dude running his mouth has no idea who he's talking to. Don't make this man mad. :man10:

If there is a potential for a fight during these games, it's this one.

Kobe's little spat, Bron just got in a small wrestling match on the floor, and Melo just got elbowed by some dude.

These Australians are feisty...that's for sure. And they're hanging in this game too. Score is 29-25 USA.

It's on ESPN360.com, but your ISP has to have the service. It's worth a try.

What a terrible performance. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come.

I watched the second half. Meh. USA is much more athletic than these clowns so it's hard to judge how well they played. That Antsey dude took it to us.

Kobe played dumb today.. don't know why he decided to make it 1 on 5. Luckily his defense made up for his ball hogging and that pushed the lead up.

Kind of nervous still, Spain, Argentina, Greece are much better than Australia..

That's their right. When we smash Spain, we can go and talk trash in the Spanish Speaking Forum. :man1:

Alternatively, why don't we set up a thread so those who can't go beyond trash talking have a field day and try to keep the other threads as relevant as possible?

I haven't had a chance to watch this game, but from the games I've watched so far, USA has been far above their competition. Which is a good thing, but could also be a bad thing. They can play a more free style against much lesser teams, but they'll need to lock it down against the likes of Spain, Argentina, Greece...

Winning by just 11 points against an Australian team without Bogut isn't very impressive.

Watched the game but couldn't get out of bed to the computer ha.

I thought the team played below average and I think it had a lot to do with Australia's defense. We'll see how good this team is in the coming weeks.
