    Yeah, nice travels by D-Wade there. And strange and-one by Howard.

    23:21 U.S. after 10 minutes.

    I was really hoping that the refs would start to rule games by international rules when team usa plays, but unfortunatelly once more that's not the case

    Dirk missing his fade away tough jumpers so far ... America not comfortable with the German zone - it works for the time being. Equal game so far in the middle of the 2nd quarter.

    Well, there was a travelling call and a 3-seconds call against USA - I guess the problem is with consistency when making such calls. And NBA guys are more "relaxed" about making that extra step.

    USA misses a lot of wide open threes - they have this "feel" of their latest Olympic team. I wonder how their shooting will be when a game is on the line and the pressure is up.

    Well, they called one travelling now, while the US guys are using the extra step (or sometimes even two) in every 2nd attack. The refs should call by FIBA rules and not try to make life a bit more comfortable for NBA players (this is not only the case in US games btw).

    Refs clearly want to take Dirk out of he game. 2 of the three fouls were NOTHING!

    Was that a foul by Nowitzki? I really don't think so. Everyone knows that the US have the best players but the referees should let them prove whether they really have the best team.
    I think most people (even americans) would agree with me.

    During the worst US moments, a foul against Nowitzki. It happened in the 1st quarter (2nd personal), it has just happened. 3rd foul...

    P.Roller catches D.Wade's eye with a swinging hand in a fast break situation - Wade must sit. But it all seems OK, fortunately.

    Lol at these people complaining about officiating, thats what happens when you cheer for a certain team, you look at things one sided.

    40-39 first half... the referees are really protecting the american players. It reminded me of the NBA finals where Wade was fouling Nowitzki but the referees gave the foul to Nowitzki.
