    Croatia was already qualified to the second round. They have the first seed no matter what. So, they rested two of their best players and the other two just played about 20 minutes.

    A piece of trivia (well not for me). Kevin Pangos the Canadian pg is from around my area (Holland Landing...near Newmarket). Nice kid, very talented ballhandler, recruited quite heavily I hear and going to Gonzaga this year as a freshman.

    Nice!! Let's hope he continues this strong play all summer long and into next season - hopefully (fingers crossed*) when he comes to Toronto, he'll be ready to play as a solid five for the raps
    Your ex came by; you can call me Jonas Valanciunas, cause I'm the king of rebounds!

    Val fouled out early in 4th, got an unsportsmanlike call. Game is out of reach for Canada though.

    Game is over, 111-68. JV only played 14 minutes, 15 points, 9 rebs, 4 blocks. Looks like Lithuania will be playing Serbia on monday, USA on tuesday and Egypt on wednesday.

    Actually according to the FIBA website, they won't televise any game till the quarter finals, so unless you're talking about a Lithuanian feed, I don't think we'll be able to watch it.

    Valanciunas fouled out in just 14 minutes. He did put up eye popping stats in that amount of time, but that's going to be his biggest problem, especially when he gets to the NBA. I'd expect a year or two of Amir like foul-issues. My Amir comparison really does seem pretty accurate, at this point.

    I agree, Jonas' best comparison is a taller, longer amir johnson with more upside.

    I didn't see the game, but how is he getting his fouls? Is it off dumb plays like reaches or lumping when he should try to take the charge or is it that he is too skinny to stay in position? Either way, having another season in the Euro's will help him get better at that par of the game.

    I agree, Jonas' best comparison is a taller, longer amir johnson with more upside.
    If he can bring the same stuff that Amir has brought for us, especially in terms of advanced metrics and hustle, he'll be an excellent player. If he cuts down on the fouls and gets stronger and we'd have one hell of a center.
