Wow! Italy is playing at their best.
They donīt have any center. Very hard game.

Spain, Argentina and Turkey are playing better basketball than USA right now.

BTW: USA and Italy are arguably the two most "dirty playing" teams in the tournament.

Our boys are kind of getting rocked. It's so weird to see Wade, LBJ, and Melo lead us to a 13-point (or whatever) quarter.

Hinrich keeps getting blown by by the little guy and then leaves a guy wide open at the end. When you're best defenders doing stuff like that you're in trouble.

Melo has "that look" on his face he had in Memphis series .

I think Lebron is playing solid tonight, they should tighten up their perimeter defense.

Whoever wins this game wins the division. Wade is playing horribly and Melo can't lick a free throw.

There are two Q till the end of the game, but if Italy is a hard oposition to USA then, Team USA must be worried.
Italy is a good but incomplete team with no centers.

Lack of centers isn't really a problem when playing the US though, the 2nd unit for example has a frontcourt of Jamison + Brand, hardly intimidating.
