Hell they could have put up 180 if they wanted too. They didn't even press in the 2nd half. Big players didnt even play in the 2nd half.

I don't think I've ever seen an 83 pt blowout.

The over-reliance on the three is insane though, do they even run an offense? I saw maybe five passes that turned into easy baskets. Otherwise, everything was a deep chuck. I could see it biting them against a quality opponent.

it was all nigerias fault. they pack the paint and crash the boards resulting in every single basket being an open shot. plus nigeria doesnt know how to play basketball apparently.

We're here talking about a total domination display by USA and the record made tonight. Enough with the man love, there's a place to everything.

hey if the guy wants to say what he is thinking so let him and don t attack him for sayin that he thinks kobe is still amazing. yup it was a team effort but when he wants to say something over kobe so let him because you are not the king of the world or the ruler of this forum.

Ten of the other 11 teams that played today scored 82 points or less. The US just WON BY 83.

I only saw the second half, but what a show. I think Melo had five consequitive 3-pointers on five consequitive possessions. Absolutely stunning display by Team USA. :patriot:

it's not like he can't he doesn't even want to ... he just jabs all the time, fakes ... even when he is alone he usually waits for the defender ... he doesn't shoot off the screen that much he slows the game down a lot

No offense, but every time you post I prepare myself for Kobe Bryant hate.

Historic game ... but yeah they're going to keep chucking threes after the incredible % they ended up with tonight ...
They were at 36% before this game , not exactly outstanding .. or maybe they start adapting to the FIBA ball
