Jazz rookie Dante Exum has played just 11 minutes in three quarters, as evidenced by his exhibition performances, not quite ready for FIBA
Without Patty Mills, the Boomers are having to get their offense from the interior and the pick-and-roll play of Joe Ingles.
3Q: Slovenia 69, Australia 60. Baynes leading Boomers with 17 points, 6 rebounds. Goran Dragix leads SLO with 17 points, 5 boards, 3 dimes.
Brazil took control in 2Q, outscored France 17-8. Batum & Gobert with 13 combined points for Les Bleus. Barbosa 6 points for BRA.
Half: Brazil 28, France 26. Splitter 2 points, 1 board, 1 assist. Diaw: 4 points, 3 assists, 1 board.
Without Tony Parker, this French team's offense is very Batum/Diaw heavy. BRA is doing what they can to make it tough on Batum.
Took until the final two minutes left in the half, but Brazil has taken the lead from France. Brazil being aggressive on Batum
Tiago posts Gobert, uses the up-and-under to draw the foul. Tiago to shoot free throws 3 and 4.
Boomers have opened second half against Slovenia with 7-2 run. Slovenia leads by 1. Baynes up to 15 points, 4 boards.
Diaw sets the pick, waltzes to the rim off the roll. Very Diaw-esque scoring basket. France 22-18. Diaw 4 points.
1Q: France 18, Brazil 11. Diaw 2 points, 2 assists. Splitter 1 point, 1 rebound.
I know Peter Billingsley; Peter Billingsley was a favorite of mine. You, Amazon Phone kid, are no Peter Billingsley.
Half: Slovenia 49, Australia 43. Baynes leads Boomers with 13 points, 4 rebounds. G. Dragic with 15 points.
Diaw with 2 points, 2 assists in opening minutes of the game. Splitter with 1 point.
France opens with a 12-3 run to start the games. France's offense orchestrated by the movement/spacing of Diaw & Batum.
Splitter just posted Diaw, announcer mentions how this scenario likely happened in San Antonio during practice.
Tiago Splitter does what Splitter normally does, slashes and gets to the free throw line.
Diaw again, posts Nene, draws double team from Splitter, and feeds slashing teammate for layup. France 6-0
Boris scores early with a light tear drop. He's matched up with Nene.
And France vs. Brazil is about to start. Tiago Splitter vs. Boris Diaw. Two Spurs battling in the frontcourt.
Since 2011, the only people to win the Heisman are QBs who said, "Mack didn't want me." Last chance to get your J.T. Barrett pick in.
Baynes with 10 points already in the first half, leads his team in scoring.
After Slovenia opened the 2Q with a 7-2 run, Australia has scored the last 4 points. Baynes up to 8 points, Boomers trail by 9.
1Q: Slovenia 27, Australia 19. Baynes 6 points, Ingles 7 points. Goran Dragic 9 points.
Slovenia with an early 23-15 lead over Australia. Goran Dragic 7 points, Baynes 4 points, Ingles 5 points.
The sneaky Spurs, one of the best 3-point shooting teams, adding Ray Allen would be typical sneaky Spurs.
If Ray Allen agreed to sign, in my opinion, he'd get that 15th spot easily over Baynes, Ayon, or any other players from training camp.
Teddy Riner au 7e ciel. T es un géant !!!
UTSA kicks off the season opener with a 27-7 victory over Houston. Really was a shutout until the final minute of the 4th.
Not sure people nationally realize that three years ago, UTSA had never played a football game. Of any kind. Coker's incredible.
The Roadrunners are rockin' and rollin' right now... 21-0 over Houston in the 3Q.
Arizona-Unlv football game is a stinker! Bad football
A move like that would mean someone with a guaranteed deal would have to be released. Doubt that happens, but still interesting.
Interesting little note from Stein's article on the Spurs' interest in Ayob. Chance SA might be looking at signing both he & Baynes.
Chapel hill... 4th-7th
Looks like Greg Robinson's going to UConn tomorrow.
Per NBA: Record 45 current NBA players to compete in 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup
I'm on board with Gustavo Ayon. He's a Spur-y type player.
I tend to take CFB extensions as seriously as Stanley Hudson does Schrute Bucks, or Ellis Redding does the word "rehabilitated."
Tim Duncan's honor thesis is essentially one long Kobe Bryant subtweet.
Lost my Lolita's taco virginity today. It ... wasn't as good as I thought it would be.
You give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime.
His reasoning: Whole Foods is a (figurative) meat market, while you can get pork enchiladas and British Tea at Fiesta.
Unless I missed someone, Jason Hall will be the first true freshman position player to start an opener at Texas since Blake Gideon in '08.
