The game was a war : 5 Ts and 2 or 3 unsportsman fouls, 2nd half began with Navarro shooting 2 free throws and ball for Spain because one argentinan player got a T when he was going to the locker room after the 1st half. There were about 50 fouls. Calde and Rudy got 2 Ts because they let argentinan get them mad (now the ref isn't looking, I hit you, now you are mad trying to do the same but the ref is looking ... argentinan are genious in that stuff).

Argentinan began with their dirty tricks too early, so the refs had to be really serious with the fouls. Refs called the coachs and told them that they (coaches) had to relax their players. Aito (Spaniard) told the ref that if he should take out of the game some players it would be fine with him (Argentinan guys were doing the most of the fouls).

So the clock never ran more than 45 seconds without being stopped. First time that Ginobili was on the court was at the second half, and he lasted less than 3 minutes to get his 3rd foul, Prigioni when he was fouled out called the ref " shitter" and got a T frome the bench ...

With the free throws and some 3s Spain got the win in a extreme hard game, where the mental part (don't let them get you mad) was the most important thing.
