No matter the box-score (Spain is winning and The Golden Boy is top scorer so far).

This has been a fine 2+1 nonetheless

Is Spain a real contender for the title ? Their odds are nice, so I put a bet on them. I'm not a believer in this USA team. Maybe Popovic gets them to play as a team as talent alone will not be enough. Serbia will also challenge them and there is a great chance of an upset.

Maybe not so strong as Srbija and we'll see about France.
That said, Spain is legit serious threat for USA.

Greece with better odds than Spain on the site I put the bet, but I don't see it. Giannis' game is just not that well suited for FIBA basketball. France and Australia next, but they appear to be lacking in both talent and depth.

I'm not that optimistic on Hellas and we'll see about France and Australia meaning both might end up being dark horses or disappointments.

At The Shire, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, Western Mediterranean, the friendly game against USA is around 04:00h early morning.

If I manage to deal sleep deprivation, may I follow it live.
Now seeking for functional free no register needed streamings.

They play under a smoggy fog. It benefits Spain.

Twitter had Rubio with

16 points
7 assists
5 steals

I know it was a scrimmage and its international basketball, but it already is pretty darn fun rooting for a competent point guard.

TheGoldenBoy Rubio was the best Spanish player at court, to my biased eyes.

Gasol shooting good but sparing efforts a bit at defense. Llull still returning from his injury did a fine job.
Aside Oriola and some good moments at defense, few remarkable stuff for Spain.

USA looked dizzy but superior.
Kemba was functional, Spida, Tatum and Kuzma were shinny and Middleton the most efficient one.
They need to get better against zones. Spain used it loosely at times and USA got some trouble.

They didn't look invincible.

Ty looks prettier than he actually is. Okobo not bad at all.

The GoldenBoy looks like a low-life latino thug from GTA or some Batman's Arkham serie.

Re: Nómades do Negro Troll Soles. Os Soenix ao Phol. Aron Baynes & aussie pals vs. USA. He didn't look his best himself. 

Post#96 » by El Hespiritu » Thu Aug 22, 2019 9:53 am


RedBeard starts for Australia. He was too deep at the paint and Spida got some easy shots. Now he's adjusting and better postioned for contesting them.
Turner defends him well. He's far bigger. Aussies see this and Bogut jumps on to be the 5 (Aron goes to 4).

First 3p from Baynes. 17-13 for USA.
Not flashy but working. He puts some tough screens with people falling to the floor and stuff (him also).

Now, he's being benched. 17-16.

I like Australia. They are hard-nosed, disciplined and hard workers. Ol'Man Ingles is one of my favourites bàsquet players and I like Bogut and Delly thoughness.

22-20 USA End 1st Q
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ingles 2+1. Australia leads. Kuzma and Plumlee doesn't understand each other. Bogut understands Kuzma isn' the smarter defender alive.
Great Aussie defense. Spida gets trapped (we don't double team at open gym, bro!). kemba fauls but gets the OfReb and him+Spida put the 29-25 for USA. Time Out.

Americans bit blurred on offense but they manage to score.

Baynes at court. 33-27. P'n'Roll with Delly. Doesn't work. Tatum hits hard.
Mills is a brick machine right now.

39-28. TimeOut.

Bad Jaylen floater. P'n'Pop RedBeard/Ol'Man. Doesn't work either.
Mills finally hits a corner-3.

Bad Baynes floater. Good Middleton floater.
Australia is stack. Foul at Harris.

Goulding two 3p in a row. Good aussie defense. 42-37. Baynes, to the bench

Fine Lopez's bucket. Turnovers here and there.
Mills on fire 3p at the buzzer.
44-40 USA Half Time.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Baynes looked a bit rusty. He worked as hard as always nonetheless.

He starts 2nd half with a silly turn-ower allowing Pops to join the fun. But he makes up for it with a good p'n'roll with Delly.
Now he's hot. Defens Turner and gets an OfReb. He can't make a good hook on Myles tho. Now he fails an open 3.
Turner embarasses him.
54-45 USA, TOut.

Baynes sits down. Spida 3p.
Fine Boomers' passing attack. Spida answers it. 59-48.

Kuzma nails a frontal 3. Fine USA defense now but Goulding makes it useless. Full-court pickup on Tatum. Faul.
Bogut with fantasy pass for Mills. Spida answers again.
Australia fails an aleyhoop. Smart Goulding faul. Now, he'sfauled and sends the FT for 66-58.

Goulding All Star!! He stopped Tatum now. But Jayson nails it at 2nd intent.

Airball Rubio... mmmh... sorry, I meant Airball Mills. Kemba hits it and Brown re-hits it.
Time Out 72-58.

Ol'Man remembers he's a shooter (it was about time).
Aron returns.

Intelligent Aussie defense. Kuzma off foul. Baynes puts a hard screen and it's a foul as well.
76-61 USa End 3rdQ.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

RedBeard, irregular. Good and bad actions randomly sparsed.

Now is a good one: Frontal 3p for him. Now he's fouled under the rim. USA steals and Kemba finishes. Turnover for Baynes (sigh).
Delly penetrates. Baynes defends Turner well but it's a foul.
80-66.

Myles is looking good. Baynes not that much. They send him to the bench.

Delly makes Barnes to miss it and Goulding Hall of Fame nails another three. Foul on Barnes. Two on them. He's being impactful.

Bogut tries but nah. Delly was smart sneaking Spida at half court. Mills' brick. Kemba fins Plumlee at the rim.
Bogut tries and yasss. Kemba answers from long range. Mills does it now but kemba is on fire. Bogut again hitting the rim.
91-73.

The Boston's JayJays shines in transition. Kemba overdoes and Australia gets a 2+1. Kuzma sums another foul. 95-79.
Good press defense for Australia. Jaylen brown dominating the paint.
Kuzma really has a problem with game awareness. Loses the ball again 'cause aussie tricks. Middleton step-back 3p.

100-84.

The game is done. USA neatly superior.
Australia has been good enough at defense but not consistent enough.

102-86 Final.

RedBeard Baynes was kinda bad. He is faaar better than he looked today.
Pre/Post Season rhythm issues I guess.

There's such a level difference between both teams... it almost looked as an open gym work.

Had Willy Hernangómez complain about double team, I wouldn't had raise an eyebrow.

If you click the button in the image below, you'll be redirected to the official full game replay (Spanish commentators).
Who knows... maybe I'm not the only weirdo sick enough to watch it full.

click here--->ImageImage

Now I will re-check what TheGoldenBoy did and I'll (probably) summarize it later.
I don't think it's an interesting game enough for a true play-by-play.


Highlights of the game for regular guys (pirated and mute).

Ricky Rubio (starter)

3p: 2/4
2p: 5/8
1p: 4/5
TO: 2
AS: 6
Stl: 0
Rb: 0
Pts: 20

20:24min

TheGoldenBoy was neatly superior to the whole RepDom guards' battery.

Most of his points weren't jumpers. He rather prefers shooting with both feet at the ground (FT-style) regardless the range.
In this game he barely tried his unique trademark-shot, the BBF (Bizarre Balanced Fadeaway) and he looked smart on Scariolo's essay of different types of zone defense (including some minutes of whole court press-zone).

Occasionally bit relaxed and overconfident 'cause the opponent weakness, he payed for it with a couple of turnovers.

Some slight demi-beef nose to nose after someone elbowed him at the mouth (he got a technical foul) but nothing over the top.

He looked more focused on running the systems and ordering the team.
Not so impactful at defense as he normally is... probably he didn't want to spill too much dominican blood.

Dominican systems hardly do P'n'R and Spanish zone systems tend to avoid mismatches so he rarely switched with dominican Bigs and thus had no rebounds at all (in the NBA, he defends P'n'R to the rim and he's surprisingly good boxouting bigger guys to grab some boards).

He's the best Spanish player and the team leader right now: best scorer, assistant and stealer.

He's averaging 17,4 pts, 4,8 as & 2 stl in 21min in these friendly matches.

I’m stoked for Rubio... I was watching some Mitchell highlights last night.. couldn’t help but notice how many of Mitchell’s highlights involved a well thrown pass from Rubio.

Best Golden Boy's friend in the NBA is probably Ol'Man Ingles but Spida and him shared some special link on and off court.

Donovan is a smart kid; he was by far the Utah's player with best comprehension of Rubio's passing game, despite his youngness.
Stumps Gobert, not that much. NoIdeal Favors some better. Ol'Man, KK, Jae & O'Neale, good enough.
