    Wait. Whatever happened to Francisco Garcia? Is the injury that bad? Is it confirmed? Or was the 0 minutes against Mexico was a smokescreen? Thanks.

    The Dominican Republic defeated Mexico by the score of 86-73 to stay on track for a 2010 FIBA World Championship berth.

    Luis Flores had 18 points, Charlie Villanueva 14, Carlos Morban 13, Jack Michael Martinez 11 and Al Horford 10 for the Dominican Republic who are 3-3. Francisco Garcia missed the game due to an injury

    Any word if it's serious? Or if DR just felt they could handle Mexico without him?

    i say its a smokescreen. No specific notes on the injury? They are resting him. Of course this is all speculation. Hopefully our DR friends have an inside info or something.

    Chill down both of u
    Dont make me go Stuart on u guys


    I dont believe Cisco Garcia injury is that serious, I bet he will play.
    Dominicana have the upper hand, the best player in Horford, the desire, the fans and the coach to do it. Its their time. They will shine.

    after watching many games, i do feel of course that DR has much more talent than Canada (even without Cisco, although i am sure he WILL play in the most important match of DR history "maybe")..Canada players are really just average players, when DR has for example Ricardo Greer on bench... the guy was averaging 32 minutes and almost 12 points in Euroleague !!! this is solid experience player, and even he doesnt get the chance to play a lot in DR.. Canada players are just mediocre players, with only English maybe on somewhat close level... Canada looks to have better system, but then again... they rely TOO much on 3 pointers and actually their system worked ONLY vs very weak teams, while vs good teams (even Uruguay) they lost quite easily..

    i think DR will beat Canada, better bench doesnt give Canada that much advantage, in fact i think this is kinda a disadvantage as they mix players too much and can make 2-4 subs at a time... and when that son of a coach ( ) comes on the court.. he only shoots threes, which he is good at.. BUT HE MAKES STUPID DECISIONS, which already cost them....

    for all the Lebanese.... think about it, and cheer for DR

    they have more chance to get a wild card... as FIBA will want as many as possible NBA players to participate in the Worlds... with DR they get 3, and maybe even more... so DR will get a wild card, seems like everybody is interested in them participating... but in any case, DR will win tonite.

    you are right but "number of nba players in the team" is not clearly reflected in the criteria...so i guess main criteria "history-importance to organizers-popularity of basketball"...DR have an advantage over lebanon in nba players but is it part of the criteria....this is my question...
    anyway we should wait the outcome of the game and then we'll see
