    The reason Ukraine is losing is because they probably don't understand their coach haha Lithuania's coach speaks their language
    "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in: I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!"

    Ok I like Ukraines coach, tells his team "quit turning the fucker over!"
    "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in: I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!"

    JV looks frustrated. Lithuania coach should take him out.

    If Raptors could play defence like Lithuania does....

    Valanciunas 2PTS (1/3 FG), 2 REB , 1 FOUL in 12 mins.

    EDIT: a bit off topic, but LK becoming clutch in this tournament.

    LK always plays good for Lithuania just for some reason he phones it in during the NBA season its weird. hes actually crazy good in his country and pretty efficient too. I blame national pride.

    Kleiza's size and skills are more suited for the FIBA game. You could say the same about a number of players at Eurobasket. Kleiza never "phoned it in during the NBA season." He is too small for a NBA PF and too slow for a SF plus he has and still is hampered by knee injuries.

    I can't decide what I'd prefer. Spain means a much tougher game for Jonas and the team, but a much better test for him/them. Italy means Jonas may have a field day inside against Italy's "bigs".

    Spain bigs Marc and Mumbru ( or something like that sorry ) looks like a real deal, but Marc Gasol is getting windy so fast. I don't think Spain bigs can keep up against LTU bigs if they(LTU) try to stretch floor a lot with twins and Motiejunas. What I saw from the last games Motiejunas and JV duo works very well. I really hope to see JV having great test against Marc Gasol.

    But rumours r that Spain doesn't want to play Lithuania in QF ( strange, right?! ) and they just don't look good in a match vs Italy (they had monster 2nd Q tho).

    EDIT: I have to take my words back about Spain. : D

    I'm just worried JV will pick up a couple of quick fouls against Gasol, and not even get the paltry 17 minutes he's been averaging. Of course the flip side is a good game against Gasol would maybe be a very good sign.

    Will see. It's possible that JV isn't even playing Spain in QF.

    Spain from +15 to tie in the last 4:36 mins. Overtime. ( M Gasol 28 pts 7 rebs... )

    Just saw Raptors jersey in the stands!

    Indeed...though I'm a firm believer that with Spain as constructed, you need to match up against Gasol, and you need a good big to do it. Not sure Lithuania's other bigs are up to the task, and playing small would probably be a disaster. Greece only pulled out a victory against them because Bourousis was able to match up pretty well against Gasol...every time he was off the floor Greece got chewed up inside. Jonas has been LIT's best inside defender by a pretty wide margin from what I've seen.

    Exactly. Twins are too small for him and other center is.. just too old, too slow.

    Anyway, Spain just lost to Italy and Lithuania will meet Italy in QF. If LTU win QF they'll meet Ukraine or Croatia in semi-final.
