Jorge Sierra

I was half expecting Dominican Republic to blow this game, but might prevail thanks to key offensive rebounds.

Jorge Sierra

Francisco Garcia back to the bench. Not moving all that well.

Jorge Sierra

Dominican fans really excited about this game. Look at Latino Joakim Noah. instagram.com/p/sdTZUxOAIp/

Jorge Sierra

Terrific defense by the Finnish now. Not that Dominican Republic's offense is a thing of beauty, though.

Jorge Sierra

Francisco Garcia back on the floor.

Thibodeau won't stop taking questions. USA Basketball staff laughing a bit in the background.

Jorge Sierra

Thibodeau: We think we're a championship-caliber team, but we have to work on it.

Jorge Sierra

Thibodeau says he's enjoying international basketball a lot.

Jorge Sierra

Thibs: "Derrick Rose has to work on his timing."

NBA return a long shot for Puerto Rican legend Carlos Arroyo. shar.es/11Gvee He's thinking about a coaching career.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA coasting through the game a bit now. New Zealand putting together a nice performance.

Jorge Sierra

Of course, James Harden now comes out firing. Three-pointer and dunk on New Zealand.

Jorge Sierra

Just 13 shots taken in two games and a half. He's had 11 assists, though.

Jorge Sierra

For a guy that was touted as leader of Team USA, James Harden has been pretty passive at the World Cup so far.

Jorge Sierra

Some American players look in awe as New Zealand players do the haka.

Jorge Sierra

Ukraine is executing really well down the stretch. 64-58 with 36 seconds to go.

Jorge Sierra

Omer Asik is the leading scorer with 16 points. I repeat: Omer Asik is leading a game in scoring.

Jorge Sierra

How ugly is the Ukraine-Turkey game? Only one of 20 players is shooting better than 50 percent. Two minutes to go and the score is 56-52.

Gasol's Spain the best team ever (outside of the U.S.) to me. Sorry, Yugoslavia.

Jorge Sierra

Spain just put together possibly its best game since the last Olympic Games.

Jorge Sierra

The Gasols have no business being on the court this late in the game with a 23-point lead.

What the media is tweeting about Kenneth Faried right now. shar.es/11tBrC

Jorge Sierra

Crowd booing Derrick Rose heavily for passive play.

Jorge Sierra

As he goes to the bench, round of applause for Kenneth Fareid from neutral crowd.

Jorge Sierra

My prediction that Kenneth Faried wouldn't be that good in FIBA ball is looking awful so far.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA making the game a more physical affair now.

Jorge Sierra

DeMarcus Cousins venting on the bench a bit.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA showing a lot of frustration right now. Very smart play by the Turks. They are holding the Americans to 38 percent shooting.

Jorge Sierra

Kyrie Irving's playmaking is a little off vs. Turkey.

Jorge Sierra

Game has really slow tempo, which is troubling for Team USA.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA can't buy a shot right now.

Jorge Sierra

Kenneth Faried playing incredible. Not just effort and power, but a bit of finesse too.

Jorge Sierra

Catching up with Magic coach Jacque Vaughn. shar.es/11tJiK We asked him about Fran Vazquez. He laughed.

Former Piston Slava Kravtsov with 7 rebounds and no points in 21 minutes. Such a fluid athlete for his size, but leaves you wanting more.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA beats Finland 114-54. Derrick Rose (12 points, 5 turnovers) has played more minutes than any other American player.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA's reserves are outscoring all of Finland 29-22.

Jorge Sierra

Barring a 42-point comeback by Finland, Team USA will win its first game of the World Cup today.

Jorge Sierra

That wild card invitation to Finland not making FIBA look good so far.

Jorge Sierra

Anthony Davis scores on a double team and gets the foul. He's phenomenal.

Jorge Sierra

Team USA: 35 points and three assists. Ball movement is not good, but it doesn't need to be.

Jorge Sierra

New Zealand, who has one player over 6-foot-8, outrebounded Turkey 47-31. Turkey has six players over 6-foot-8.

Jorge Sierra

Turkey finishes the game with a 15-1 run and wins. A win is a win, but not a great effort by the Turks today.

Jorge Sierra

Fourth quarter: New Zealand has not scored a single point in the last four minutes. Surprisingly, that may cost them the game.

Jorge Sierra

Except for the last World Championship, where they played hosts and were terrific.

Jorge Sierra

Turkey down 64-72 against courageous New Zealand in the fourth quarter. Turks typically not the best competitors in FIBA competitions.
