    Ante Tomic and Croatia vs. USA B Team

    When? Saturday, August 28. Noon EST.

    Where? Turkey

    TV? ESPN Classic, or you can stream it live right here. https://espn.go.com/extra/fiba/schedule

    What to look for? Let's see how Tomic matches up against NBA talent. Team USA's bigs aren't that great, so hopefully he won't get juggernauted. I know, right?




    NBA fans should remember point guards Roko Ukic (85 games with the Raptors and Bucks) and Zoran Planinic (three seasons with the Nets), who can both get into the lane and make plays. Tomas will likely be their top scorer for the tournament, but big man Ante Tomic will be the guy that the U.S. will have to worry most about.

    Article from a week ago says he's working his way out of a nagging injury -- hope we get to see him at full speed:

    Another article also mentions that he's gone from team's 13th man last year to one of top 4 this year:

    Do they ever lean on Tomic. If he can add some strength, Andrew Bogut lite?

    I've watched Tomic play 4 times now. I have a gut feeling that the Jazz need to make him the number one priority on getting him over next season. I mean, I don't want to make the Gasol comparison, but c'mon, man, dude got game.

    Outside of a few hesitant post moves, I would have to agree. He looks quite good. Is in a bit of foul trouble though so I'm not sure how good of a look we will get of him.

    I still think he looks awkward and weak, and will probably be a poor rebounder in the NBA, but he has a good feel for the game. Certainly he'll find a place in the NBA, if he chooses to come over.

    He needs to be more built sure but he can play in the nba right now. He has great foot work as well out there to get around people. They say the jazz got a steal with this kid and that might be true. We have to get this kid over here next year.

    He has some skill but get's pushed around a bit my smaller players. He still needs to get a lot stronger.

    He will be a good fit fo the Jazz. He got pushed around by Odom but if he got into the Jazz system, he will be set up with screens in the low post. He would not have to work as hard as he is right now trying to establish position. Once he got the ball deep, his soft touches will be hard to guard.

    He seems to be a good passer too! Just deliver a nice bounce pass to Popovic for a layup.

    Even though he's missed some bunnies, when he's on the court, there seems to be a lot more space for Croatia's players to operate (and less space for the US).
