    Barely. Missed a couple gimmes, but he was better than the other night where he missed a bunch of long jumpers. Still shelled out a few assists, so the all-around game looks OK.
    How about his handles? That's what they/he said he was gonna work on this summer. I haven't caught any of these games.

    He's had really limited action. He's looked pretty good, not many turnovers that I recall and has been finding his teammates, but he's not exactly being guarded by Iguodala out there.

    His passing looks a lot better. He tried a really nice one hand pass from the top of the arc into the paint for Plumlee I think but it got picked off last second. Wasn't much to see though considering the game was way over by that point and they weren't playing very hard anymore.

    LOL. Dario Saric lost 6 teeth in last night's win.

    When was the continental shift when Turkey became part of Europe?
    Officially, the border of Europe is the Bosphorus. Turkey straddles the straits, so it is in both Europe (where the capital, Istanbul is) and Asia (where the bulk of the landmass is). Turkey has lots of mountains and deserts on its borders with its Asian neighbours, so its natural trade links and relationships are with Europe.

    I see the FIBA World Cup has an 'efficiency' measure in their stats. I'm not sure exactly how it is calculated.
    http://www.fiba.com/basketballworldcup/2014/playerstats

    Jonas Valanciunas is currently sitting #10 in this list. People like Anthony Davis, Faried, Blatche, Deng and Scola are ahead of him. Jonas is also shooting at an 80% clip (12 for 15). One should expect domination like this from an NBA player against teams like Mexico and Angola ... and still ... not bad start.

    Seems weird that you would lose a point for getting blocked and also for the missed field goal is results in.

    Puerto Rico about to lose to Greece

    That would make them 0-3

    Also: losing a point for committing a foul. Possibly the single stupidest sports-stat-related thing I've seen in my life.

    Well, this formula is used as default in FIBA Organizer. I've heard that few foreign leagues use a bit different formulas.

    I like how only after the pass is made he realizes his mistake and starts moving

    I'll take Demar over Harden any day of the week.

    I dont think Derozan is gonna get serious burn on this squad, but maybe against Spain to get the big in foul trouble and get to the line if Harden is having a bad day
    Tbh USA practices will be a greater learning experience and will make Demar more mature as a franchise player going forward
