USA vs Spain Gold Medal Game, SUN 7 AM PST

Postby The Rock on Sat Aug 11, 2012 12:12 pm

I think it will be close the 1st 3 Quarters but US will pull away. I expect a US win by at least 20 points. I expect Pau to destroy Lebron and Durant. I just dont think Spain's guards can keep up with the speed, athleticism and shooting of this team.

I'd like to see Pau go off for 50 and the USA win by 50. :man1:

Really? LeBron seems to root him out on defense and move him wherever he wants. Guess depends if Spain can find him with good passing to make James pay for fronting, and if Pau is the "beast" he says he is in this game and can hit his shots.

If we play bad, it'll be a +50 lose game. If we play like we are playing this tournament we can lose by 20 or 30. Only chance to win is a M I R A C L E.

I'll be watching with a few beers, won't be here to talk it with you guys, i'll come here when i arrive home to congratulate you guys. Don't be too bad with me.

I agree Lebron did quite a good job defendind Pau.

Yet there is one big difference with last USA-Spain game, Marc Gasol. Against Russia he did a terrific job. Marc and Pau together can make somewhat an impact.

But we'll see. I expect USA to win.

Marc already has 4 fouls, that's going to be huge.

Westbrook looks a bit lost out there today. But Love is playing his best game so far.

Anyway we can pick up Juan Carlos Navarro? I think he's a better backup than Blake, LOL

No wonder Batum went all hulk smash on Spain......Rudy's acting is pathetic and he needs a boot square to the face.

Refs ruining the 2nd quarter ... As for Team USA , it's Lakers D like ... shooters are left opened for no reason ... overreacting to semi penetration/losing his man at his best

Told you guys Spain is always crying and flopping all over the floor...

Marc and Navarro are complaining on EVERY single call ... Rudy ends up down on the floor every other possession

My favorite is Marc vaulting off of Kevin Love and then crying to the ref asking "WTF did I do?" :man10:
