Australia keeps playing down to its opponent, very annoying. 6-0 and beaten France but have had poor showings against Czech and Senegal. Turnovers and pnr defense the biggest issue. Haven’t watched Spain this WC but their roster doesn’t seem overly intimidating with Ibaka and Mirotic not playing. I honestly think we have legitimate chance at winning it.

Mills, Delly, Ingles, Baynes and Bogut have been so good with committing to the team over the years... I hope the next batch: Simmons, Exum, Landale, Green, Maker, Adel, Cooks and Bolden are... but I am doubtful.

On a side not, Albicy seems to be the French version of Marcus Smart

USA got demolished in the first quarter... is this their worst team they’ve put out in a big tournament? Too many Boston players?

Absolutely. There isn't a single top 5 player at their respective position in the NBA on the roster, and their depth is laughable.

These Chinese pricks booing Bogut every time he touches it because he called their drug cheat swimmer a drug cheat

Call me bias but Jock Landale should be in the NBA, tore up summer league. He’s basically everything we hope Wade to be just better.

Mitch creek should also be in the NBA but maybe cavs aren’t a great fit when trying to develop Cedi/Windler/KPJ

delly was good, the problem was Australia collapsed when delly was taken out of the game with 5 minutes to go and the lead went down from 65-58 to 67-65 in 1 minute

you keep him in there for the composure and Australia simply don't give up those points or look bad

so what if he had some turnovers, mitch creek and nick kay shot attempts should be counted as turnovers

Didn't watch the game, but I assume Delly was primarily being guarded by Rubio? If so, shouldn't come as a huge surprise that he struggled to score. For all his warts, Rubio's still probably a top-10 defensive guard in the league.
