Maybe people will stop underrating Wade. His jump shot is streaky, but his defense is solid, ball-handling/passing solid, and he is one of the best finishers in the game. The international game is a poor fit for him but he's still doing a decent job.

Still kinda wish JJ was getting some of his minutes though. Team USA has enough finishers.

Anybody else think coach K was probably preaching defense since the PR game and now? The defense looks tighter to me. Maybe China is just playing sloppy.

Nice attempt by Wade, too bad his dunk rimmed out after getting past the defense like that.

fouling yao is frustrating, his free throws are money so its dam near useless.

yeah, dwyane just made a nice layup on the drive. He had a bad last game and i wasnt impressed but he got way to much hate from one poor performance.

Dwight Howard seems to have gotten a LOT better at FT's, so far this tournament he's 10-11.

heh, outside of yao, china has no offense at all. they should be giving yao the ball on every play but they can't even do that. good thing is, yao is looking good with his 2nd week back from the broken foot. its obvious nobody on team USA can guard yao without having to guard him.

It realy sucks to be a great player, but only have ****ty teammates on your national team. Germany got really nice contributions tonight and blew out New Zealand, while Nowitzki played an all around game 11pts, 8 rebs, 5ast, but generally they rely on him heavily. Yao Ming´s situation is even worse. The chinese sports system probably picks future basketball players based on size, which means they have decent big men, but their guards are probably tabletennis rejects. They suck major a**.

picked a usa 120-70 win in another thread...at halftime it looks pretty bang on.

It looks like a huge blowout in the making, The Chinese will give up and start playing half-assed like they dont realy care anymore to save face...this one gets ugly.

Wade really looking to prove something today, 15 points by the half now, almost all of them on layups or dunks.

Btw here's why the USA have the lead :

Steals:

China - 1
USA - 12
