CJ Bruton just got robbed on a foul, maybe two. He now has 3 fouls (I think) and the 2nd quarter is only halfway over. USA up 41-24. Team USA's defense has gotten better by the minute in this. Australia's just firing tough outside shots and missing
wtf, its so wierd that the game is already underway, yet it will BEGIN airing here on ESPN2 at the top of the hour(about 15 minutes)...why are they tape-delaying it for an hour? thats so retarted of ESPN
i gotta say without any bias that bosh was america's best defensive player in the first half. bogut couldn't do anything when bosh was guarding him on the perimeter. he also contested a few shots including a big block on a dunk attempt that somehow was called a floul. howard had a huge block too. bosh has around 5 reb. too. looking usefull on offense (only has three pts though).
melo has 13 pts and JJ has a quite 12. wade made a few beauty passes also.
australia scored only 6 pts. in the second quarter i think.
howard also did i nice spin move i didn't know he had in him (maybe a fluke? lol).
funny moment was when howard backed down australia's pg (under 6 ft. i'd say). he get's fouled and the ball slips out but his hand re-touched the ball and directed it into the basket. should that count if he touches the ball again after the whistle was blown for a foul?
