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
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.
