    I don't think it's over for us. It would've been worse if we'd faced Lithuania or Argentina. I think we'll advance to the next round.

    I think Duncan can easily handle Gasol. And he's their main man so I'm pretty sure we're up next. The thing that really disturbs me is that we might face Lithuania again...

    You seems to be very confident... In my opinion spain has better chemistry and shooters. And it seems like you don't know anything about spain cause they have other great players like navarro or fernandez. And gasol isn't the type of player that you can "easily" handle. I think that team usa can win but they will have to play a lot better than they did in the first round. Though game in perspective...

    Just recall Memphis-SanAntonio games through this season and you'd get the answer wether Duncan can shut down Gasol or not.

    I know Spain's got shooters but so we do. And we've got more tallented players than Spain. If they play man'n'man we're easily up. If they play zone we'd need more decent D and mor rotation of the ball. But it seems we've got that ratiotion. Like we did against Greece for example.

    And yes, I'm confident.

    the US has been playing together for awhile now so they jsut keep getting better and better.

    And yes, I'm also confident.

    Pau Gasol determines Spain's outcome.. If he plays well then Team USA will have their hands full, but if he is contained then they(USA) have the advantage..
