    I think that Spain will win this game because they play the better defense.

    Well it left 3 hours and i am now so tensed hrr. Well the key factor in this game will be defence because i think the offence for both team is usually being done well. From lith side : defence Spain big guys. From spain: our guards. Which first will reach this goal those should win. however it will be difficult match for everybody also for fans.

    I think i will go out from job because if we succed so after game it will be soooo difficult to reach home. aaaa and lithuania will sink in yellow green and red colours.

    Without Calderon, I think it's at least a 60-40 for Lithuania. Ricky is too young, and while he can do well, I doubt he can stand against Jasikevicius a complete match. Raul isn't bad, but he's not specially a good defender, and he probably lacks of self confidence.

    Still, with a very good defense Spain can do it. Go Spain!!

    Im kinda superstitious so seeing that this is the year of the 1st seededs(NBA: Lakers and Boston; NCAA: Kansas and Memphis), it's gonna be Lithuania.

    Ilgauskas, Macijauskas and Sognaila are missing and the others are on the team (Jasikevicius, Lavrinovic twins, Siskauskas, Kaukenas,...).

    Allthough I hate to see anybody out with injury, it was a bummer to see Marc Gasol back in the lineup. He's just way to slow for the rest of the otherwise quick Spanish squad. I would of prefered just to see Pau go 30-35 minutes then get substituded for the half the game with his bro. At least the Liths have a slow pope of their own in Jatvokas to match up with Marc! Despite that Calderon might not being playing(someone promised that marc was out of the tournemnet, so you never know), the Spainish guards should demolish the Lith's who should be forever spanked for not bringing Kaleitas to help out their turnover god, Saras!

    I have always been a big fan of Team Lithuania and Sarunas Jasikevicius. I remember their centers also hitting threes with ease
    Yeah, you got it right I think this time we won't be playing for a bronze medal. My feminine intuition tells that Kaukenas to score 32 points (2/7 2pts, 7/8 FT, 7/11 3 pts).

    must be a very good one, since he's known in America, but not heard of in Lithuania
