    no way, heads of our players is in big mess, we stayed even without chance to qualify for oi, it's more likely scenario that usa will win by 20, or 30 points difference..

    +20 USA without any major problems. Even I think that there won't be defense at all from both sides. Serbian side seems to be tectonically broken. A lot of dirty laundry is being washed through media. More important than this game is to fire Djordjevic otherwise I think we won't collect a normal team for Olympic Qualification.

    Before the tournament, the majority believed Serbia vs. USA would be the final, now they are not even in the semi-finals. I don't expect anything from these teams after the huge disapointments, anything can happen.

    Meaningless game that neither team wants to be playing so let's do something fun like feed Bogdanovic and Harris for threes every possession and set some scoring records. Or maybe one-on-one game between Plumlee and Raduljica while everyone else gets drunk on baijiu.

    From the most exciting game to be (before the cup) to one of the most boring games. Serbia has no chance to go directly to Olympics while USA already has the spot. I don't even know what to predict. An arrogant atmosphere is one thing that you will clearly see

    aww leave the kids alone, a really trolling game for both squads which i am sure they wish it could have been behind closed doors.

    two most underachieved teams in this tournament , will be interesting to see how motivated or unmotivated this game will be for some players. I'd say bench should get a lot of minutes especially from US side

    No member of team USA should play more than 20 minutes. But if they do White, Smart, Harris Plumlee and Lopez should start and play 30 minutes. It’s only fair to their employers since honestly I don’t even know how to classify this game. It’s something less than an exhibition preparation game, whatever that is.

    I would be laughing very much if that two center lineup of Serbia would work the first time in this tournament against USA. Knowing our media this would be a new contract for Sale.

    Why stop at 2 centers? Djordjevic should do a complete throwback and he himself must suit up for the game

    Believe me, P&R, which is a basic element in a 2 big line up where I think you'll agree, would be run better with Sale than with our actual guards

    It's true that this game is meaningless but give the Serbs the possibility to redeem themselves a little bit, like a way to say "i'm sorry" in front of their fans. I mean, if they come into the court without any attitude that would be too much.

    This. While the USA really don't have anyone to play for. Plus they will be playing back-to-back games.
    Serbia gets this.

    At least we still get to see the match-up everyone was anticipating with so much eagerness before the tournament even started.

    Not to disrespect France, Spain and the Boomers but pound for pound talent wise, Serbia and this USA team are still the most talented bunch here and they under achieved in a way that hopefully both teams show up next year and put quality in intl basketball..

    Hopefully Argentina wins so that to prove that with proper set of Gleaguers or set of Srbia team with less nba ego's(they were a team when the key guys arent nba players or superstars yet) they can beat the milllionaires and prove that basketball is more substance than flash..
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..
