Bad foul by Batum
With Ike Ofoegbu recovering from knee injury, Maccabi Haifa signing Mexican PF Hector Hernandez.
And all of it happened in 1 second of game time. Bottom line, Ukraine still up 2 over Finland at the half.
Ah, classic FIBA game. Refs miss Ukraine travel, should've ended half them up 2. 10 mins, 2 weird moments later, each team scored again.
End of 3: Serbia 62, France 60. Batum 24 minutes: 11 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 turnovers, 1 steal, 5/9 FG, 1/4 3PT.
This Sean Payton quote on Champ Bailey is a bit ominous: http://t.co/K6GwQ4qF3R
Big game for Francisco Garcia today in WC. Had 29p in 30 minutes to key Dominican win vs. New Zealand. Had 18 yesterday.
10-0 run by France ties it early in 3rd Q. Edwin Jackson part of 8 of 10. Assist, hit a step-back jumper & converted a 4-point play.
What a start for France in the third period. Jackson+Batum and the score is 46-46
So in all seriousness... Raduljica is a player I'm sure Ferry is taking a look at. Serbia is pretty deep but France has more star power.
Great Britain forward Myles Hesson has signed for German BBL side Eisbaeren Bremerhaven
TV Analyst Mario Boni is criticizing Diaw since the game started. Belinelli on Twitter: He MUST count till 1000 before talking about Boris
More like Tottenham Coldspur, at least when they play Liverpool.
Facundo Campazzo: We can still fight for the first position in our Group
Raduljica has been a hoss inside again, but it's been a balanced attack for Serbia. Up 42-34 on France. Bad halves for Diaw, Fournier.
France does not have any kind of replacement for Tony Parker
Finland looking pretty good today with room to dribble and shoot. Up 12-4 early on Ukraine.
Batum intercepts a Bogdanovic pass, then draws a charge on him. Serbia still in control, 34-26, w/ 3:36 left in the 2nd Q.
Rad with the Josh Smith-esque trot back on defense arguing with ref
Bruce Pearl is at it again -- adding another Top 100 caliber player in 2015 class: Santa Monica 2-guard New Williams.
Frustrating game for Bobo. 3 fouls, 2 turnovers in 6:15.
Interesting interior matchup Raduljica's power against Gobert's length but it may not last long with Rad already asking for a sub again
Also, clearly, I'm back from vacation.
Dear Boris, you're allowed to shoot the ball when you're posting up a guy 80 pounds lighter than you.
Where would Rondo even re-sign after next year? Houston? Dallas?
Rondo ruling out re-signing with Sacramento makes me sad. You all don't know how much I want Rondo-Boogie.
Prince Joffrey having a nice game; and Raduljica has a hipster beard for your ass. He also apparently has conditioning issues.
Joffrey Lauvergne (draft rights held by Denver) played that entire first quarter. Looked decent, though he's not very big for a big.
It’s really annoying that both Bogdanovics wear No. 7.
Fournier getting much earlier PT than he did yesterday. Jacque Vaughn here in attendance.
Arena showing highlight from Finland's game Sat. Picked one where USA missed 2 shots on the same possession. Maybe that was the high point.
FIBA World Cup. Group B: Argentina 85-90 Croatia, Group D: Korea 55-89 Australia
Four DAILY newspapers in Spain devoted solely to sport. Another reason I probably should have learned Spanish by now
After just one day of games, I had "Sube La Copa" running through my head as I tried to fall asleep last night.
Croatia barely beats the Philippines, while Argentina crushes Puerto Rico. Now, Croatia beats Argentina. This could be a crazy tournament.
Group B Final result: Croatia- Argentina 90-85, Simon 18, Bogdanovic,Saric (16pts/7rebs-16pts/9rebs)
I’m not sure how Argentina makes a deep run playing such a short rotation.
How and why is Jordan the official sponsor for Croatia's gear?!
That drive from Lafayette was terrible, fall was even worse, though. Hope it's not serious.
keeper what are you doing balotelli what are you doing
It’s too bad Rudez has to play for next year’s Pacers instead of last year’s Pacers.
Love how the FIBA announcers immediately berated Dario Saric for asking out of the game not realizing his tooth was knocked out.
Dario Saric apparently just had a tooth knocked out in CRO-ARG. Fun game so far.
"How bad did the USA beat Finland?" "Boogie dished a wraparound pass to Mason Plumlee for the 40-point lead in the second." "Oh."
The far scoreboard has now corrected itself to 29 points, so Garcia gets the win but loses his 30-point performance.
Big night for Francisco Garcia, who had either 31 or 29 points, depending on which scoreboard you believe in the arena.
FIBA World Cup, Group C. Dominican Rep 76-63 New Zealand (Garcia 29 - Abercrombie 22)
Dominican Republic just called a timeout up 13 with 10 seconds left. New Zealand doesn't look thrilled.
Facundo Campazzo with the three-pointer. Croatia up by 2 late in second quarter
Croatia up 28-20 vs Argentina after first quarter Dario Saric has already 9 points
Dominican Republic leads New Zealand 51-50 after 30’
But, while impressed by USA, is still picking Spain, saying their more seasoned guys will figure out how to handle the Americans.
Said the way Davis played sounded like the way Hanno Mottola had described trying to face Garnett back in the early 2000s.
Interesting talking to a Finnish journalist today about how they'd never seen anyone like Anthony Davis before. Was on another level.
Barcelona make official the signing of free agent PF DeShawn Thomas. Deal valued at $600 thousand, per source.
FIBA World Cup Day 2 started with Dominican Republic vs New Zealand
The 59-point win was the USA’s largest margin of victory in FIBA World Cup play since NBA players have been included on rosters (1994).
Coach Mike Krzyzewski: "Congratulations to Finland. They played hard for forty minutes, we played hard for forty minutes
Late-season Simpsons episodes are generally not that bad.
Maybe FIU knew what was coming?
Mountain West teams which already had Hawaii penciled in as a win need to re-consider. 'Bows really deserved to beat Washington.
UFC president Dana White just said he has no doubts Urijah Faber would fight pal TJ Dillashaw for a lot "less than a billion dollars."
Omg the Simpsons did a "Tik Tok" intro sequence with Lisa as Ke$ha what is this
Cravens on Shaw: "I'm sure if some guys did know what happened, they wouldn’t say because they might have to be witnesses in a courtroom."
Cravens on Shaw: "“We got to see what happens legally and if Coach Sark lets him back onto the team. We don’t know what happened."
Cravens on Shaw: "Nobody expected it. We all thought he was a hero at one point. It’s unfortunate what happened but we have to keep going.”
Josh Shaw texted Cravens before the game. "He just told me to be a leader. Just be a leader and take over the secondary."
Cravens: "We’re the SC that y’all have known; we’re the SC that’s ready to fight against everybody we play. I think we showed that today."
Areas of concern for Red Raiders from 2013 carried over to game vs UCA to start 2014. 114 yds in penalties, 2 turnovers & conceded a safety
Cravens: "What they don’t know it’s a band of brothers getting ready to play the game. Think what you want. We’re SC."
Su'a Cravens: "When everybody is talking bad about SC and saying it’s a Clown College and it’s a joke at this school, we just laugh."
We had a close one in Lubbock, Texas Tech needed 636 yds of offense & hung on for 42-35 win vs Cent. Arkansas. 452 yds & 4 TD for Davis Webb
My smart money would land with T.J. Dillashaw facing Raphael Assuncao.
By my count, FBS went (45-2) vs FCS in opening CFB weekend. Lot of close shaves & N. Dak. St beat Iowa St, also Bethune-Cookman over FIU
Joe Soto was transported to a local hospital immediately after his loss to TJ Dillashaw
Ducks need to huddle or just run play clock down. Can still run whatever plays they want. But merciful to shorten this a bit.
Instead of ripping his GM, TFC's head coach should recognize his poor tactical decision had huge impact on tonight's loss
Man… and people say baseball is slow…
People who get excited about the Ducks at this point of a game rooted for Wooden’s Bruins and Casey’s Yankees.
If only one of Charles Nelson's parents were a Reilly, this Ducks season would be so much more enjoyable.
If the A's go 17-10 the rest of the way, they get to 95 wins. Which might or might not be enough to win the AL West.
Second half of this one is almost like running time… should go pretty fast
If the Giants go 17-10 the rest of the way, they get to 90 wins. Which might be the NL West winning number.
Les Miles, Yellow King, Carcosa
Mariota only plays in the first half. Jeff Lockie in for second half
LOVE IT that Helfrich was unhappy at the half. Fans don’t get it — he’s coaching for a national title and needs to be demanding.
Imagine how good Wisconsin would be if Chuckie Keeton was the QB.
Football nerds: Punting on 4th was a horrid move there by Wisconsin, yes?
Quandre Diggs: "That's what Texas should do to North Texas. ... That's the way the guys before us used to do it."
The Wiscy QB can't stop throwing picks. Where is Danny O'Brien when you need him...
Wisconsin QB making YOLO throws out there smh
MollyDamas making her Grizz pre-season prediction and she says 82-0. http://t.co/wj6C2j10YQ
was kind of hoping they’d have a long FG before the half — just for the practice of it. They never need that until the season rides on it.
Joe Soto has been impressive with his left hook. TJ Dillashaw has eaten a few of this 2 rounds in. Dillashaw more aggressive to open 3rd
You and me can write a bad romance.
LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron being touted as a genius on ESPN. Covered him at Indiana. Great athletes make you so much smarter.
this is every LSU game. other team dead and they hammer away.
Hawaii outplays Washington but trails, 17-10. Missed FG, botched fake FG, stupid penalty to keep Husky drive alive, 91-yard TD pass by UW.
What's a worse adjective than collapse? Whatever it is, Wisconsin is achieving it
Duck fans — did you expect your guys would allow 13 points in the first half?
Ducks offense looks great. The defense hasn't done anything that will strike fear in Michigan State or any Pac-12 school. It's 35-13
i wanted to go to bed, LSU.
this would be a disappointing loss for the Badgers
Wisconsin. How does that happen. On 3rd and 21. With a zone defense.
