    Hopefully Jonas will have one breakout game with a few "wow" moments to tide us all over.
    Walking like I'm already there.

    Also have to throw in my vote of confidence for Teksavvy - it got recommended to me and yes, the 300GB of usage a month is amazing and the speeds are even better - $40-60 a month can get you a lot further with these guys than the other evil giants ie bell, shaw, cogeco, rogers, or whatever else there is out there.

    Go Lithuania! Go JONAS! Can't wait for the Team USA vs Lith game!
    Awesome, thanks guys. I'm going to give them a call. Yeah I'm trying to get everything off Rogers, I'm so tired of delaing with them. Really appreciate it. Cheers.

    God, I'm loving the Olympics right now. Only time where Synchronized diving ever would stand a chance against basketball hahaha.

    Another sloppy offensive foul - 3 early in the 2nd .. and to the bench again. This is clearly job #1 for Casey and crew to work on with JV ..

    I hate how he is the first big down the court and never gets the ball, or sets a great screen rolls hard to have kleiza or someone else jack a tree - he is getting no love from his teammates, can you imagine they replaced their point guard with calderon

    Lithuania's goal is to win a basketball game, not necessarily to feature a recent NBA first round pick as in a summer league game. Nigeria beat Lithuania recently in the qualifier in Venezuela so today's game plan was an effective one.

    From watching the first two Olympic matches, the game plan each game for Jonas has been that he starts and plays until he gets his first foul and goes to the bench until the second quarter and he plays a couple minutes until he gets that second foul. He starts the third quarter and plays until that third foul and back to the bench.

    Really hate how people on these boards are acting so ignorant. JV isn't going to play if he sucks ass just for the sake of advertising. If we have better / more effective options we will use them.

    People need to get it into their heads - JV isn't the best player on the Lithuanian team. Not even the 2nd option. Or 3rd...

    Are you serious, is a dunk not the best option on offense, because he would have at least 5 dunks if his teammates would look up once in a while, or when he is matched up against a 6ft9 guy is his hook shoot not a better % shot then a contested three by kleiza, I do understand the coach has a set plan, but seriously kleiza has him in the post with great position looks him off and jacks up a three

    IN A PERFECT WORLD I'D SAY YOU'RE RIGHT.

    Reality though is such that JV isn't capable yet of doing those 5-6 dunks on a daily basis. He would've fouled out before that or get his dunks rejected by those athletic Nigerians. JV is still way too weak to be a starter in NBA. JV struggles to put himself in right positions against stronger/bulkier players.

    Kavaliauskas was way more effective today both on defense and offense - that's what I call 'other option'.

    Probably not. Not when he's still one of the youngest (if not THE youngest) and least experienced guys on the squad. This is a veteran laden team and JV was supposed to be coming off the bench until the other dude got hurt. It's a long way from dominating the U19 tourney to starting in the Olympics. I'd bet that especially after having lost the Eurobasket on their home court and having to go to the last ditch qualifier they have a ton of pressure on them to medal in London. Totally natural for the coach to go with the vets.
