    Look at Lemanis pretending to care.

    No hand up on the jump shooters, not chasing turnovers, tank is strong

    If we tank this and still finish second then major facepalm.

    We aren't good enough to manipulate our way into the medal rounds. Even if we avoid the US we'll probably lose to whoever we face in the round of 16 or quarters. That's not to mention that we will still probably get the US despite the tank.

    I get that feeling too, Lithuania will tank even harder than us.

    Why? We still finish second.

    Probably the best display of game plan execution since Lemanis took over the reins . Quite difficult in the half court for a defensive system to create that much space.

    Because we want to finish third.

    Only thing I can really say about Moreira despite the scoring outburst is that he's a tall, athletic, long guy who can rebound and dunk when around the hoop... Horrific interior and transition D in the 2nd half, but hey, good to get Goulding, Exum, and Jawai minutes.

    Why. They win they finish first. They lose they finish 3rd. Before this loss they had a chance of slipping into the "non-preferred " 2nd spot. Slovenia is the team who may be pissed now.

    Because of the reason we tanked this game.

    Miss USA in the quarters or whatever.

    So both teams will know a win guarantees first. I didn't realise.

    Neither team will tank I see.

    Ben Allen could have scored 40 against that D.

    Finishing 1st gets an even better draw than finishing 3rd. Both avoid the USA until at least the last 4. You need to understand before making these wild comments. 2nd and 4th is where you don't want to be.

    Alex understands that. His facepalm comment was because we could still potentially finish 2nd (if LTU lose).

    Might want to correct that.
