Game Thread: FIBA 2010 Preliminary Round - Game 2 - Team USA vs Slovenia


Just another ha ha-ha ha ha haaaa... LAUGHER!


But it sure didn't look like a laugher after the 1st qtr, with Croatia down only 2. But the speed and athleticism of USA's defense in the 2nd qtr made Croatia work for their shots, and it wore them down. It didn't help that even when they had some "easier" looks at the rim, Croatia still could not buy a shot. The result was a 26-6 2nd qtr, turning this game into a laugher by halftime. Team USA wins it 106-78.

The blowout means none of the players were overtaxed in this game, so they should be reasonably fresh for this morning's game against Slovenia, who also had a blowout win against Tunisia, so they are also reasonably well rested. Mmmm, 6:30am game. You hard core enough to watch this game live?

Familiar names on Slovenia: Goran Dragic.
