Tied at 11, under 4 minutes left in the 1st...

 

Been physical... again, the US needs to move the ball better than they have.

Has there ever been an unhappier looking group of coaches than Coach K, Thibs and Boeheim?

This is the best they've looked all Olympics.

Thought we discussed this before, but couldn't find it.

The FIBA Americas tournament is in Mexico in late August and early September. The Top 2 teams there qualify for the Olympics, with the US and Brazil already qualified.

 

Will be interesting to see what happens with Team Canada:

1 Tyler Ennis, Cory Joseph, Kevin Pangos

2 Nick Stauskas

3 Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett

4 Tristan Thompson, Trey Lyles, Kyle Wiltjer

5 Kelly Olynyk, Robert Sacre

 

Would look better if Anthony Bennett came on... he could be the 3, with Wiggins at the 2.

Still, that's a pretty good roster. Capable of a medal.

Possible Team Canada without Wiggins...  (Dec. 2nd 2018)

http://nblcanada.ca/.../20181202fdvsh0

 

 

Point Guard – Cory Joseph (Indiana Pacers)
Season stats: 7.2 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, 3.9 assists
Back-up: Shai Gilgeous –Alexander (Los Angeles Clippers)

 

Shooting guard – Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets)
Season 
stats: 17.1 points per game, 4.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists
Back-up: Nik Stauskas (Portland Trail Blazers)

 

Small forward  R.J. Barrett (Duke University)
Season stats: 22.7 points per game, 6.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists
Back-up: Dillon Brooks (Memphis Grizzlies)

With increasing reports citing that Andrew Wiggins will seemingly remain out of the Team Canada equation for the foreseeable future, R.J. Barrett comes as the most obvious replacement.

 

Power forward  Trey Lyles (Denver Nuggets)
Season stats: 10.5 points per game, 4.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists
Back-up: Dwight Powell (Dallas Mavericks)


Center – Kelly Olynyk (Miami Heat)
