    Damn. Really could have used a couple more NBA bigs.

    The refs cost the team 6 points on total bs in the 4th, and another 4 points of garbage in ot.

    Too bad team canada didn't realize the urgency they needed to play with until it was too late. You can't pin this loss on Lyles. Disappointing considering how much talent we have. Oh well, bring on 2024? Maybe we can tank and get 4th pick?
    He was 1-7 FG, 0-4 on 3s that were all wide open easy makes. Watching live he just killed our momentum every time he touched the ball unless he was driving and got fouled.

    If we add any of the missing players Lyles are the first minutes I would give to someone else.

    Cory Joseph sucked big time as well.

    Meh. We already have 10X the talent of the Czechs without those guys. FIBA is like that sometimes. One & done, like March Madness. The best team doesn't always win. It's happened to the US many times.
    The reffing, the different style of ball, the guys not showing, one and done games - FIBA tournaments are virtually always a mix of irritating and underwhelming for Team Canada. Always.

    You also really can't underestimate how important it is that a lot of international team guys have a bunch of playing experience together (in FIBA in particular) and teams like Canada and USA are just slapping guys together at the last minute.

    Also, for that last shot, they should've designed a play for Wiggins. I get that Lyles got a wide open look but I don't trust him to make those shots. Wiggins on the other hand is pretty clutch and is more than capable of making difficult shots. Always give the ball to your best player.
    Forget about Lyles - the game was lost in the first half. Our defense absolutely sucked. Czechs were getting layup after layup and wide open 3s. Czechs came out with force, Canada wasn't ready and it gave them a lot of confidence that they could actually beat a superior talented team.
