Kyle Korver would have looked real nice against the match-up zone right about now.
Kyrie Irving just redefined "floater.''
Besides playing poorly, Team USA getting FIBA-ed by officials.
Turkey knocking down 3 after 3 after 3....USA looks out of sync...Turkey 51-45-3rd quarter
Sort of a turnaround as Turkey feasting on Americans
Turkey up 5 over Team USA at half.....this is not a typo.
Brutal 1st half for USA team and Rose as last play for Rose ends in Rose's 3rd turnover on pass and Turkey 40-35 lead. But, hey, moving well
Did Simeon HS never face a zone defense? Bad, bad, bad.
Even on TV thousands of miles away, the frustration on Derrick Rose's face is obvious. He just isn't playing very well right now.
USA needs to clean a lot of things up----they've come out flat, uninspired.
Before we continue to use the word "stunned" let's wait until late 4th quarter.....
ESPN game announcers doing the best they can from studio but not being on site hinders getting a true feel for the game .
Feeling pretty good if you've got Turkey and 37. 16-16 after one quarter. USA playing like extra portions of tryptophan in pregame meal
Rose enters w/USA finishing up 9-0 run to lead 14-10. Quickly fires up three against zone to show he's not resting in 2nd of back to back
Rose enters game 5 min left 1st Q USA 14-10
Omer already dominating with three rebounds in fewer than two minutes in 6-2 Turkey blowout thus far
Cool the way FIBA games start precisely on time without fans being singed from fireworks debris.
Never met the man but by all accounts Adam Dunn was a great guy in the locker-room. All the best in Oakland. Thanks for your time in Chicago
Cal gets a break....big break but again we're talking about the Bears--they'll probably throw 3 times..lol
This Cal playing call is brutal..absolutely brutal
Northwestern has a shot to win this game...if Cal loses this is on the coach..period.
Here come the Cats!
Final stat line for Derrick Rose was 12 pts, 3 asts, 3 stls, 5 TOs, 3-8 FG, 1-2 3-pt, 5-5 FTs. Klay Thompson led US with 18 pts, A Davis 17
The slide continues. Northwestern has 18 of 22 starters back, plus an experienced QB, and looks awful against a Cal team it crushed last yr.
Cal 31-7--didn't see this coming. No way.
USA with 114-55 win over Finland as Rose has 12. Iran trying to go nuclear, but Pau Gasol with 26 has Spain up 20 on Iran in 4th quarter
Time to flip over to Northwestern- Cal...what, wait-Cats down 24-7 at half? No way.
USA 114 Finland 55. Final. Thank you.
Rose with a smooth wing pass to Thompson who knocks down a right elbow jumper...Rose looking for him..can't blame him.
Let's just run the clock and call it. USA 101-49
Rose to Plumlee...USA leads 97-47...
After 3---USA up 50.
Thompson's shot is so wet it's ridiculous.
USA up 50. That's all I got.
Rose still shaky around the rim.
USA lead cut to 40- Rose is fouled shoots two. The camera has more bounce than Finland.
USA leading 70-24. Urban Meyer says they need to start trapping and pressing more.
Finland breaks 0-19 field goal drought. Steps being skipped?
They're dancing in the streets in Helsinki---Finland has scored a bucket--- USA up 44
Rose 7pts 2reb-2 assts 2 blocks...
USA with 60-18 halftime lead. Thibs preparing his seen McGrady score 13 points in 35 seconds speech.
60-18 USA at the half....Cheetos for everyone.
Anti-upset alert: USA 60, Finland 18 at halftime. Rose with 7 points, including a nice two-hand dunk.
Murphy is a great shooter .... outside of actual games.
Rose with a nice cross and dunk on Finland. Gar and Pax are probably watching that replay over and over right now.
Is it still called a Euro-step if you're in Europe?
Rose takes hard hit, fouled trying to go over screen. Next play drives middle, crosses over and thunders down two-handed dunk! Back? Back!
Finally ... welcome to the FIBA Cup, DRose. It's been a few weeks since we've seen that!
Rose right down Madison Street for the hoop.
FIBA refs make you appreciate NBA refs .... unless ur Thibs.
Rose returns now I hope his teammates give him the rock..
DRose is the best decoy on the court right now.
TV cameras focus on Rose greeting team into t/o after Irving 3 makes it 47-18. Appears fists not sore despite several bumps and greetings
Irving buries right wing 3---USA blowing out Finland in 2nd Q-Rose remains on bench with 5 pts.
Kind of gets you excited for the stretch run when you hear "Anthony Davis taking it to Hanno Mottola."
Hmmm, didn't see a single "I believe that we will win" tweet for USA vs. Finland.
Those M. Camby-A. Davis comparisons? Went bye-bye awhile ago. Camby's offense was a punch line compared to A.D.
You either have it or you don't----huge gap in talent USA and Finland.
Finland players appear to be taunting USA players that their apps are the best as they invented Angry Birds.
Bulls' Rose with 5 pts and Cavs Erik Murphy with 6 going at it like it's 7th game of Finals. The rivalry begins!
Murphy in Stick-it-up-the-Thibs mode. Still won't dent Team USA's lead.
ESPN reporting Rams waive Michael Sam....could be a practice squad player.
Rose finishes 1st quarter with 5 points.
Rose playing most aggressive defense in tournament; just back to deflect fast break. Follows that with drive for 3-pt play. 31-16 USA
USA up 31-16 end of 1
Rose gets a old fashioned 3 pt play...USA up 31-14.
Finland cold as a quarter of the country is within the Arctic Circle. Team cold also trailing 24-12 after two Rose free throws.
This has to be FIBA production..ESPN is always top notch.
USA 17-8-Rose remains not he floor- 1 foul
USA leads historic rival Finland 13-8 with Rose entering game midway through first quarter.
Rose enters the game....
I'm getting nautious just watching this game...wow...
Maybe my tv is busted but my picture is shaking..is that on me or the camera/production?
I'm sensing the game announcers are not on site based on sound effects..etc...am I incorrect?
Are the ESPN announcers live in Spain or in studio?
I just watched a transformer T-Rex devour a car. America. http://t.co/GHclvPg8KQ
How's the Michigan radio broadcast cast going? I'm sure Brandy and Dan are superb....
