    Bronze Medal game is always hard to predict because you never know how motivated a team is going to be.

    Australia fully believed they could compete against the US for gold and didn't get there.

    Spain thought this was the year they could knock of the US and fell short again.

    I give the edge to Spain, as this may well be the farewell game for this generation, so I expect them to come out strong.

    I think Australia will be more motivated for their first ever medal. Seriously what does a bronze medal really mean for Spain. I also had the same farewell thought about Argentina in '12 but then they got beat by Russia.

    It's a bigger game for Australia, but do they have anything left in the tank?

    Australia should be able to dominate down low but Spain is just so deep offensively. Great matchup.

    But it doesn't mean they didn't want to win. I attended the game in O2 arena and Argentina were fired up to win it just like Russia was. Olympic medal is Olympic medal, even bronze medal games were fierce battles most of the times.

    I'll go with Spain in this one

    The game could go to any of the sides but i don't think there will be lack of motivation in the Spaniards. It will be likely the last game for some people and knowing their mentality they'll push for the bronze. If they play a good or bad game is a different matter so we'll need to wait and see.

    What does it mean for them? Another medal. Bronze and podium finish are much better than nothing.

    I am almost certain that Australia will start on fire on this one. Question is if they could sustain it against a deep Spain team.

    Go Spain!!!

    Most likely he will skip-like most NBA vets and prospects- the next Euroasbket,I suppose,he needs some rest and it's obvious.I remember in an interview he had said that he wants to be part of the team until they stop calling him.

    I mean what's the point of Eurobasket if it doesn't get you a spot in the WC anymore?

    Who is the best in Europe??? Continental championships are more special and meaningful in other parts of the world than it is in North America, every title is important, we don't look at them as just qualifying tournaments for WC or Olympic Games.
