Czech lost with 7 points, but since it will be a 3 team tiebreak (pending USA to win over Brazil) they will qualify with the point difference of the games between these 3 teams. A bit complicated, but this is FIBA. The stat line was good again, but he is a true floor general with great court vision, does not force anything, and makes great decisions even under pressure. I am amazed if he does not start instead of Dunn even in the beginning of the season.


But but but... Dunn has that DOG in him!!! :lol: Surely that's more important than leading your team to wins in high pressure situations.

Yeah, I just want him to stay healthy and for Czech to be done asap.


Unfortunately they will play still one game even if they lose to Australia. This is some strange FIBA way to set pecking order even for places 5-8, like someone cares.

The post-classification matches are really stupid. Star players aren't going to risk injury for such a menial game, and there is little "valor" in winning a 15th seed or whatever the prize is.

Why don't they just devise a formula that tallies points, differentials and strength of opponent? It's not rocket science.

No medal for USA when France beat 89-79 weak USA team. Gobert is a beast!

It was kind of bound to happen. People saw it a mile away. The FIBA team usually carries like the B team from the USA. And that's still normally easily good enough to win.

But this seriously was like Team E at best. By far the worst collection of guys in recent memory. And sadly enough, this will continue to be the case for FIBA competition, unless the real Olympic team doesn't win and they are forced to compete. As long as the Olympic team wins, players, especially vets, will just pass it in favor of the youngsters.

Now the real question is, who’s more nervous about the classification game, Serbia or USA? :lol: Or rather, who gives two ****ts about it?

13/9/13 (5 TOs) for Sato, so one rebound short of a triple double, which would have been the first ever in the FIBA WCs. Not the greatest of games for the Czech team, but I think everyone has seen enough to give the final "approved" stamp for the signing.

Long story short: World Cup serves partly for the Olympic games qualifications so that explains why the seeding from 5th to 8th is wanted to settle by actually paying for them some head to head matches.

EDIT: This time around there's just nothing actually to be decided in those matches about Olympics, as per continent, all the possible spots for Tokyo 2020 have been decided. I'm not complitely sure how the points gotten from seeding well are taken in consideration for the becoming qualification matches for the rest four teams to be decided... So it still might be relevant for Czechs to play Satoransky significant minutes in hopes to get easier group to play for the place in the sun... And i'm too lazy to dig out the info. :lol:

I realize that... but like I said, can’t the played games provide enough statistics to rank them? If a team averages 20 point losses against mediocre squads, why can’t they simply rank lower than a team averaging 5 point losses against the upper tier teams?

It could, but I prefer they plan it the way they actually have to play for it. i know it sucks from NBA perspective but at least we're lucky Czechs can't snatch that place by winning both the games remaining... So Sato doesn't have to take any risks if having any sensations in his body.

Another big game for Sato: 22 pts/12 asts and the Czech beat Poland. Next up is Serbia on Saturday for 5th place -- and this from a team that was ranked 24 in FIBA entering the tournament and is missing one of its best players (Euroleague MVP Jan Vesely).

When Sato checked out at the end of the game the announcers said "the entire gym should be on their feet right now."

Guy is a stud. Plays efficiently and has a complete all around game. Great leader. Really think he's going to be a star with the Bulls.

Doesn't have blazing lateral speed or twitchy handles but he is extremely smart with the ball. Just works with a high BBIQ.

He is smart and winner. He never missed a rotation and always did his job.

His game reminds me of Dunn...or more accurately, reminds me that Dunn's game is lacking in passing and shooting.

I agree that he lacks lateral quickness, but his length and decisiveness compensate well. Really impressed with his playmaking!

Stay healthy Sato!

I really wouldnt be suprised if they dont make playoffs. There is nothing about those Celtics to be scary of them. Even as Bulls fan. Hell I expect fight for 8th seed with them.
