  • Serbia vs Garbajosa and Spain

    Serbia up by seven late in first quarter.

    Spain without Calderon and some guy named Pau is just not the same team.

    they really need Calderon, that young dude Rubio does not have the same calmness and leadership as Jose

      Bad defense by Garbajosa on the game winning three.

      Exciting game.

        Garbajosa turnover! Serbia wins! shocker!!!

        92-89 final score

        http://live-statistic.fiba.com/index...=4728&game=69#

        does anyone else have a chance to beat USA???


        Kleiza is great - but if Argentina sends a defender to shadow him, I'm afraid the Green Team will be in trouble.
        Scola 30ppg in pace for tournament MVP -- almost became a raptor! shucks!

          I don't think Scola was almost a Raptor. Bosh never really considered going to Houston - it was Houston that wanted Bosh.

            Argentina, Serbia and Turkey (only because they will have a very big home court advantage if they play team USA)

              Not that much of a shocker imo, Serbia's a powerhouse, always has been, they have quite the resume

              I never rooted for Serbia (basketball-wise) because of a couple of games against italy that made me hate them with a passion, but this time as a neutral I suddenly found myself rooting for Serbia with all my heart...as buddhafan said an exciting game (not only the last 30 seconds), hard not to get carried away

                Yah as someone already mentioned earlier Rubio doesnt seem able to carry the point guard position all the time. Dude had a few points, 3 assits, 3 turnovers you cant have a guy that plays a lot of time at the point to falter in a crucial game -_- man, guess i was rite they need......... calderon oh and.... gasol brother number one

                  I hope Garbo had fun playing with his buddies again, I guess he ought to learn something that when the best player on your team does not want to compete because he wants to save himself to the grind of the NBA season and be the best he can be to his team-mates for 6 months (you know the one who pay his yearly salary) then that is probably more important then a 2 week tournament.

                  yeah I know I know...

                    Rubio must just play badly every time I watch him play.

                    I have never seen him play a good complete game yet and probably have watched him play about a half a dozen games or so.

                    In fact yesterday he didn't really shoot very much though he did make a three. However, I noticed that except for a couple of highlight passes his passes were nothing special.

                    Even his defense wasn't very good yesterday. In the past I have seen him get three or more steals in a game.

                    He was in foul trouble yesterday and it seemed to me that he basically stunk up the court with his play. There is not doubt that Spain missed not having Calderon and some tall guy named Pau.

                      C'mon. They guy is 19. He is leads the biggest powerhouse in European basketball in the most important tournament in the world. The pressure is high, of course he won't be great every game. He is still incredible IMO just needs to mature.... If he entered the draft this year, NJ might have picked him 1st.

                        People do say that and it may have been true except for the fact that the T-Wolves hold his NBA rights. No need for him to re-enter the NBA draft

                        On second thought, given who holds his NBA rights, if he could he might re-enter the NBA draft.

                          It's really sad actually. If another team had drafted him, he would actually be in the NBA now. Apparently, Jovetud (his old team) had accepted to let him go because of the ultimatum, but because Rubio didn't want to go to Minnesota he decided to stay in Spain, win more trophies, make more money and gain some experience...

                            If I was going to compare Rubio to anyone it would be Rondo at KY. Rondo was there for two seasons from 2004-2006. He was between 18 and 20 years old at the time

                              He is a very rondo type player, but he'll never have the play defence like rondo does! But I think Rubio is a better passer with better court vision.
                              Just a note, assists aren't counted in the same way as they are in the US. If Rubio played college ball, he'd prolly average over 10 assists a game. They are real stingy in Europe in giving out assists :P
