My impression is US can be beat, but only with above average shooting. (which used to be the strength of most Euro teams) US set up offense or defense doesn't appear that impressive. But you cant miss that many shots and give up fast break which is US biggest strength.

The US can get by playing 80%, they know no one is pushing them for more than a half.

Looking forward to tomorrows match. Like the way Serbia has been playing but at -3 I'm gonna lay off. Looks like either team will be about a 25 pt dog to US.
Depending how Serbia looks I'll probably be taking the points in the final if its France probably wont. :bumpforgregm:

What happened to Spain? I thought they were a prohibitive fav to be in the finals?

France spanked them nicely as a 15 point dog, ergo my picks and comments above

Olympic Basketball starts Sunday.
I don't see Serbia or Lithuania :dunno: What happened?
Looks like 7 years since I paid attention
