  • Did anyone else notice that Jonas played 6 minutes and had 5 personal fouls? Yikes. Not exactly what a Raps fan wants to see!

      • JV has 17 pts (on 9 shots) and 7 rebounds in the key qualifying game for Lithuania. Al Horford (for PR) had 12 pts (on 13 shots) and 4 rebounds. JV seems to have come through in the clutch. Lithuania qualifies for the Olympics.

          • JV's stats in final qualifying against Puerto Rico (and Al Horford).

            Min: 26:08
            Pts: 17 (6/9 FG, 5/6 FT)
            Rbs: 7 (2 Off)
            1 Asst, 1 Block, 1 Steal, 3 TO.

            Fouled out in the last minute, with Lithuania leading by more than 20.

            JV was the dominant front-court player for Lithuania in the game. An impressive showing in the most important game qualifying their team for the Olympics, after a disappointing performance in a meaningless game.

              The quarter-final against Puerto Rico WASN'T meaningless. That was the MOST IMPORTANT game of the tournament. And JV had 0 points and 5 fouls in 6 minutes.

              Unless by "meaningless game" you mean the match against Nigeria in group stages.

                this game wasn't againts puerto rico but againts dominican res.

                you should actually watch the games versus dominican res. Lithuania dominated - valanciunas got easy time. don't wanna bash the kid - but he is yet to play good at important moments of the game for LTU team. game vs puerto rico was so much harded and he fouled out in 6 mins stupidly. hopefully just too much energy - overdid his defense

                • I hope Lithuania brings back the tied eye uniforms for the Olympics as a 20 year anniversary.

                    Yes, sorry, I meant the Nigeria game. Thanks for clarifying. JV was crappy vs. PR, and that was an important game. I actually saw some of it live on a good feed (I was overseas). The problem for JV has been fouls, and the officiating in some of these games is impossible to figure out. There were several fouls called on JV during the tournament that would definitely not be fouls in the NBA. In particular, there were a number of plays that would have been called offensive because the driver used the off-hand to push away the defender. In that FIBA tournament, those fouls almost always go to the defender.

                    • people also need to remember this is a new team he is playing on. Having watched some of the play I can tell you they are lost on offense, and defensive rotations. JV's Olympic results should best be judged when they trounce the US in the gold medal game behind JVs 40pts 20 boards 10 assists and 30 blocks...god damn these mushrooms kicked in fast

                          Just watched the Dominican game and Valanciunas was very good at very important times in the game. He played 26 minutes! How can you say that all 26 minutes in 40 minute game are "easy time". He was on the floor for the run early in the game that opened the game up. I would love to have seen his +/- in this one because even when he wasn't scoring he was impacting the game. I am impressed with his relentless screening on the offensive end. He captures so much attention on the screen and roll that his teammates are often able to get open 3's and/or open lanes as they follow the screen. He has not been great this tourny and some of the games he has looked outmatched, but you cannot say that in this game he played "easy time" and did not "play good at important moments of the game".
