Lithuania will avoid(most likely) elimination, but why the hell JV played only in 1st quarter???
I hope he's not injured.
well i hope he is, because if he isnt good enough to be on the floor here, he isnt going to do much for toronto moving forward
Next JV games will be against France, Ukraine and Belgium in the 2nd round.
I get the impression Kazlauskas thinks he's too smart for his own good. Dicks around with rotations too much, values match-ups and who's playing well at the moment more than consistency. JV wasn't even that bad. Granted, he wasn't good--but Lavrinovic was just as bad or worse for long stretches, and he didn't get benched. I mean, Lithuania was zoning up a ton in that second half (with a 1-3-1), and Jonas would be the perfect anchor for a zone like that, while Lavrinovic was terrible in that role.
It just goes to show that having NBA on your resume does not count for more than a hill of beans in FIBA.
After watching what Mirza Teletovic did to Lithuania tonight I want him in Raptors uniform
I have NOOOOOO idea how that guy coaches... confuses the living crap out of me.
Refs are ruining it for me. They made this into Womens League, back in the day European basketball was known for physicality... but now...
Isn't that tomorrow at 3 pm?
ah you're right, misread the date
