    Postgame Interview

    Lithuania (92) vs. (79)
    Boxscore
    Kleiza = 27pts (11/15), 8 boards
    A stunning 13-2 run to start the second quarter and back-breaking shooting at key moments from Linas Kleiza has secured a hard fought 92-79 win for Lithuania over New Zealand in the opening game of Group D in Izmir.
    Kleiza was masterful with 27 points and 8 rebounds for Lithuania, while Paulius Jankunas (15 points) and veteran Jonas Maciulis (14 points) were also prominent.
    Side Note:
    Turkoglu (Turkish Jordan) = 6pts (0/6), 7 boards, 7 assists

    Whose play on day 1 impressed you the most?

    Since I only saw France-Spain and I thought Gelabale was finished as a player, he seems o be healthy and impressed me today.

    Nice thread

    Thanks.

    Apparantly Kleiza has Canada a bit concerned.

    This might not be the best way for Linas Kleiza to endear himself to fans of his new NBA team, the Toronto Raptors.

    A day after scorching New Zealand for 27 points to open the world basketball championship, the Lithuanian forward now sets his sights on Canada on Sunday.

    And Canada’s a little worried.

    “He’s not going to just go nail you in the post,” Canadian coach Leo Rautins said of the 6-8 forward. “He kind of goes inside, outside, he comes off screens, he’s just not taking you straight down into the post.

    Most of the article is about Turk. However, Barbosa gets a shout out and I agree with the comment below regarding Barbosa.

    Hedo Turkoglu, Goran Dragic ready for World Championship
    Posted by Michael Schwartz on August 28th, 2:01 am

    Slovenia will take on Tunisia Saturday at 6:30 a.m. MST, Team USA at 6:30 Sunday on ESPN2 (set your TIVO for that one), Croatia Monday at 6:30, Brazil Wednesday at 11:30 on NBA TV and Iran Thursday at 9.

    All of the games can be watched live on ESPN3.com, but the two games on real television should not be missed. It will be an incredible challenge for Goran Dragic to face off against the platoon of guards Team USA will be able to throw at him (and could this be his chance for revenge on Derrick Rose). Against Brazil he may be matched up against his former bench backcourt mate Leandro Barbosa, a spectacular matchup for Suns/Raptors fans to watch.
