Speaking of which, why didnt Leo even try to have his guys play zone vs the US? Maybe then they woulda only lost by 45.
Spains defense has improved with the new coach, thats the only reason I think we might have a chance. Like you said, its pretty obvious that against the US it will and it has to be zone zone and more zone. The objetive is going to be to make the americans think as much as they can, long posesions, slow the game, make them shooters and hope none of them is on fire, thats the only way to have a chance.

Still, I dont think we will beat them.
