Just another night out in the city of Toronto.. Love is in the air.. instagram.com/p/s1EFxEsJ_K/

Michael Grange

Not sure how the defender is supposed to stop the ball carrier on those plays if those hits are penalties.

Eric Koreen

Is this godforsaken week over yet?

Eric Koreen

The last question in @Bill Simmons mailbag is heartening, which is a weird thing to say this week: grantland.com/the-triangle/r…

Eric Koreen

Trust rich, powerful dudes on your own dime, basically.

Eric Koreen

Gearon is leaking all this stuff to get what he wants. Ferry deserves whatever comes to him, but there are no pure intentions here.

Eric Koreen

Bad week for assuming stories are over.

Eric Koreen

The NFL doesn't deserve James Brown steering one of their expensive ships. He's too good for them. twitter.com/mhenderson95/s…

Nice to see @JoeyBats19 supporting #zauntourage. Good to meet @Make_It_Right. Great catching up w/ @damonallen9, @SNKenReid & @evanka

Josh Lewenberg

But, of course RT @ESPNNBA Things got a little chippy between Team USA and Lithuania after the buzzer in Barcelona. http://t.co/jTzbh3PE4I

Josh Lewenberg

USA moves on to Sunday's final where they'll face winner of France/Serbia. Lithuania will play for bronze on Saturday.

Josh Lewenberg

Credit US for taking Lithuania out of their comfort zone (w/o much resistance). LTU: 2/18 from 3pt range, JV with only 5 FGA, 1 in 2nd half

Eric Koreen

I can't help but love Boogie, just because I can picture all of the Hot Sports Takes bemoaning him.

Josh Lewenberg

Cousins is still jawing about Valanciunas' elbows to anyone who will listen on the US bench minutes after fouling out

Eric Koreen

Boogie vs. JV: October 5 in Vancouver. Get your tickets, y'all.

Josh Lewenberg

Beef RT @Ben Golliver GIF: DeMarcus Cousins does his Jonas Valanciunas impression twitpic.com/ebk05v

Eric Koreen

Pretty wonderful find by DeRozan there. Helps that Curry was the dude who caught it.

Eric Koreen

Rather awful defence from Motiejunas there.

Josh Lewenberg

With 4:30 left, USA up by 28, DeRozan and Valanciunas share the court for the first time this afternoon. Frustrating day for JV

Paul Jones

Coach Casey when asked at #GatoradeBasketball what happens when defender doesn't recover on help..."we find them a seat beside me" #rtz

Eric Koreen

Valanciunas clearly discouraged that he is not getting the ball. Lithuania's checked out, though.

Josh Lewenberg

Add Cousins to list of Valanciunas adversaries. JV doesnt forget about these things. Interested to see how it translates to future matchups

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas and Cousins will renew hostilities in Vancouver and then Sacramento in the near future to start pre-season.

Eric Koreen

Lithuania has just stopped getting back.

Josh Lewenberg

USA pulling away in the 3rdQ but Lithuania hasnt backed down physically. JV/Cousins matchup has been especially heated. Some bad blood there

Eric Koreen

I think the USA might win this tournament.

Ryan Wolstat

This one is over. USA will play for gold, Lithuania for bronze.

Eric Koreen

This game went from interesting to over rather quickly.

Paul Jones

Josh Lewenberg

Opponents have taken issue with JV's elbows in the past. That was the origins of his feud with current teammate, then-opponent Greg Stiemsma

Josh Lewenberg

Flinch-gate aside, Valanciunas has sort of gotten lost in frenetic pace of the first half. Has just 1 FG in 4 attempts as US leads 43-35

Josh Lewenberg

JV had to have been caught off guard by Cousins' reaction, hence his humorous flinch. Can't imagine it was based in fear.

Ryan Wolstat

To be fair, Charles Oakley’s the only guy on the planet who doesn’t flinch with DeMarcus Cousins coming at him.

Eric Koreen

The only thing better than blaming the victim once is blaming the victim twice: online.wsj.com/articles/roger…

Doug Smith

Many things for FIBA to be proud of; the depth of its officiating is not one of them. This looks Summer League-ish at times

Eric Koreen

Cousins with the rare combination of remarkable foolishness and remarkable restraint there.

Josh Lewenberg

Cousins goes after Valanciunas as the two bigs battle for a rebound. Former teammate Rudy Gay calms JV down.

Ryan Wolstat

Cousins thought about taking a shot at Valanciunas after VAlanciunas elbow choke

Eric Koreen

DMC just contemplated killing Jonas.

Michael Grange

Excellent Op-ed in Globe and Mail by Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry's comments: theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Eric Koreen

JV still looks off balance in the post sometimes.

Josh Lewenberg

Has anyone's stock skyrocketed as a result of this tournament more so than Faried's? Maybe Klay? Manimal becoming THE Man before our eyes

Ryan Wolstat

Sure, you tend to lose a lot on D when you become primary scorer, happened with McGrady after leaving Raptors, but stands out with Harden

Tom Liston

Well said. "Masai Ujiri weighs in on the Danny Ferry controversy" - The Globe and Mail ow.ly/BoFeJ

Eric Koreen

Timely Grease reference by the FIBA commentator.

Ryan Wolstat

Am I “misremembering” or was James Harden not a decent defender in OKC? He’s horrific now.

Eric Koreen

Lithuania's plan of running an isolation against James Harden every time down the floor is sound.

Josh Lewenberg

A thoughtful & well-articulated perspective on a messy situation MT @cathalkelly Raptors Masai Ujiri on Danny Ferry m.theglobeandmail.com/sports/basketb…

Gracias a mi amigo Carlos Zambrano por la invitacion a su casa.. Que grande eres no solo Como… instagram.com/p/s0SepSpAwR/

Josh Lewenberg

Lithuania hanging around despite 7 1stQ turnovers. Not an advantageous formula vs the States. 21-16 USA. JV with 5 pts, 1 reb in 6 mins

Eric Koreen

USA up 21-16 after a quarter. Feels like a blown opportunity for Lithuania. Missed FTs, US sloppiness, etc.

Ryan Wolstat

No surprise there, but that was an outstanding piece by Masai Ujiri.

Josh Lewenberg

DeRozan checks in for the States. USA making their first push of the afternoon, taking advantage of a very sloppy start from Lithuanians

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas gets an early chance to pay Rudy Gay back for never passing to him.

Eric Koreen

Anthony Davis cares not for Hakeem Olajuwon's summertime teachings.

Ryan Wolstat

Board dominance and havoc created in passing lanes should be difference for USA today

Eric Koreen

Kenneth Faried: also hasn't gotten the JV pump-fake memo.

Josh Lewenberg

JV was a beast on the boards in the quarters but Team USA is a completely different an(man)imal. Americans have been dominant on the glass

Eric Koreen

Best to not turn it over, Lithuania. Like, ever.

Ryan Wolstat

Lithuania-USA semi-final on now on NBA TV Canada. Valanciunas opens the scoring.

Jonas Valanciunas goes up against some damn good big men imminently on NBA TV Canada: Lithuania vs. USA at 3 ET.

Josh Lewenberg

Davis, Cousins & the American bigs will be a good litmus test for Valanciunas. His biggest of the summer. Game's on NBA TV Canada @ 3pm
