Canada destroying Brazil and Magnano was just tossed from the game. Cory Joseph dominating while Heslip and Devoe Joseph aren't playing much today. South American teams not impressing so far.

Man what the hell is wrong with Brazil, I thought maybe Canada would give them a game, but this isn't even a contest.

It's almost like...*looks down at his own sig.* oh yeah, keep forgetting...

Yeah I knew Brasil wouldn't be able to handle Canada's big men, though it was really Joseph that broke the game wide open. Did not expect such a big victory.

Mexico looks like it could give Argentina and the DR a run for their money in group B. Impressive win for them today.

this loss affects more DR than helps Venezuela. Critical loss for DR who still has to play Brazil, PR and Canada.

A win tonight by PR and they're as close to a lock for the world cup as you can get.

I haven't had a chance to see Canada/Brazil contest yet, but what a surprising result...not the win for Canada, but like you said, the margin of victory. When you lose by nearly 30 points effort and intensity has to be called into question.

Blowout, actually more interesting is the discussion on the new World Cup qualifying system, and the crowds at Venezuela.

You can say that again. no killer instinct. I was not able to watch any of Venezuela's games, but based on my assessment is it DR that beat themselves? Because based on what I have seen Ven is not that good esp without G Vasquez and it was just DR doing what they do which is to play to the level of their opponents?

With the heavy schedule in this tournament I think you often see teams pack it in when they fall behind by 15-20 points instead of upping their intensity and trying to pressure their way back into the game. The technical fouls were a bad sign though.

DR allowed 18 offensive rebounds and commited 14 turnovers. Venezuela had 72 shots, 31 of them three pointers. Venezuela cant score, but DR gave them too many shots.

True enough. Admittedly, I haven't watched the game yet. I'm just going by the final score and how eye-catching it is. But to Dtown's point, there does seem to be something amiss about this Brazilian team, especially considering how long this group has been playing together under Magnano. I've seen teams struggle before in the prelims and bounce back in the second round in past TOAM, but I don't like Brazil's form in this tournament so far.

Uruguay would have beaten 5 of the other 6 teams today the way they played. Shot 46% from 3 point land and 42% overall. Puerto Rico just didnt miss today. I also think Uruguay expected us to play like yesterday against Canada, as they played very clean and let us shoot from distance a lot.

Only 11 free throw attempts by our team, but today everything clicked. I expect a tougher game tomorrow as the jamaicans go stronger for rebounds and as a fellow caribbean team, know us pretty well.

I have seen the jamaicans play and if PR plays to their true strength and play their normal game, I see a walk in the park for you. Jamaica is a very weak team. 3-4 players max can play. They have a bum center in J Jordan who has very low IQ. I rank uruguay better because they have the no 10 guy and batista who are very decent players. But things can be complicated if P Ewing Jr will play. I see him as the best Jamaican player on the team. Although Balkman will have his hands full with Samuels and Jordan but skillwise PR is way ahead of Jamaica at this point.

Well sadly I too expect an easy win as Jamaica, unlike other teams has a hard time outrebounding us and lets us do whatever we want in the paint. Last year we beat them by 14 without Arroyo and Balkman. If Ewing doesnt play this might very well be a 30 point blowout. The fact that works against us is that PR hasnt beaten one of these english speaking caribbean teams by 25+ in a while.

Is Ewing Jr. out of the tournament already? Will he still return?

Please post in the Asian sub-forum, as this has absolutely nothing to do with the FIBA Americas championship, thank you.

Looks like Brazil might need a wild-cards after loosing twice already. If Mexico beats the Dominicans today, they have a pretty good chance to make it to Spain.

Brazil's offense is not there yet. They tried to run on the break and play a fast paced game but Canada was running with them.
