    Good game Aussies. Lithuania will need to beat France and Dominican Rep to advance to playoffs. Honestly I think France is way better opponent for Lithuania than Australia.

    I haven't seen Nick Fezekas since I saw him in Vegas when Jimmer was lighting up Gonzaga.

    Hey, I will eat it even if I only said you guys are in for surprise ( did not say we will win) . Game could have gone either way. We missed 3 FT at the end and couple easy layups while Mills made high degree difficulty shots. I doubt Baynes will ever have another game where he makes 3 3-pointers...Congrats on the win, I think Australia and Serbia are the best teams in tournament so far and most likely Finals

    Your team looked fantastic in Rio as well and I was sure they will be in finals but then they choked badly in semis...

    Yeah the Boomers were our most popular team last Olympics, they normally dont get a great run (the womens team does cause they are contenders.) on tellie. But they were a huge draw last time round. Only two Olympic sports i really like are basketball and football (dont think our mens team has qualified since Sydney 2000) its good for the game to see them do well.

    Oh im also a huge fan of the Polish womens volleyball team...

    Donovan looked great today (granted this was against Japan) Rudy has a very good game, and Joe is doing great playmaking during FIBA. Overall all 3 guys are playing pretty good during FIBA. Hoping for a real big jump once Donovan gets with this new roster and a more spread NBA floor as opposed to FIBA. He isn’t getting to the rim much at all during this tournament....which is also okay with me, you’re risking injury a heck of a lot more driving to the basket in traffic, it’s just noticeable that he hasn’t been scoring at the rim hardly at all.

    Donovan was clearly trying to pass the ball and rack up some assists. He's one of the few players on this team who can make a read and pass. He looked really good, but he's bigger and more athletic than the Japanese players.

    At :42 seconds into the video Mitchell with the smart Euro block on the rim. Nice.
