Argentina playing great strategy as a team, but playing like shite individually. A lot of turnovers, missed open shots.

Its so fun to watch when the USA just turns it on and their defense in impenetrable.

That and like Kobe said, when one player starts getting hot, the entire team follows and they go on crazy 15-0 runs with 3s.

That sequence with Melo hitting those threes was amazing.

Scola was disappointing. He might be near the end of being much of an effective player sadly.

don't agree, think he still showed his ability to score from a ridiculous variation of methods. He essentially plays C for an aeging arg team who were getting dominated athletically and well, in every way really.

next to gortat and in a decent suns team he will show his class. At least 2 good years left.

I hope so. He'll definitely show something for a few years, but to me he's no longer the energy guy with a toughness that allows him to dominate at times. His scoring is becoming increasingly inefficient, particularly for a big man, and that just makes me miss the guy that always seemed to find a way to get it done.

yeah, see what you're saying, there have been little signs, i think i just don't think it's as much of a problem as you.

I'm confident saying 2 more years of enjoying the class player that is luis. He had a good year last year.

shved really impressed me in russia's first 2 or 3 games, thought wolves have picked up a great player here. But in the last 2 or 3 he's been terrible! maybe playing the point a lot has hurt him but his decision making is bad, he's a TO machine and his handle is not as good as first appears. Hopefully for t'wolves being a bench guy and more of a spot-up shooter with some creativity will suit him better.

Yeah the referee was looking right at the play too.

In general though, let them play. Marc having 4 fouls is a joke and the amount of fouls total is insane.

Nice game. Navarro has been incredible, and yet the one miss from in close proved costly as it lead to Gasol's fourth foul.

Way too many calls, but no clear advantage. Rudy's flops are clearly more disgusting than any nut punches.
