It took a 4th Quarter rally to prevent the USA Men's BBall team from losing again. Australia (a real underdog w/ no NBA players-Shane Heal played for 72 mins, but that was it) was up by two at the end of 3, but then the US team actually started playing like NBA players and they won 89-79. They just got hot in the 4th quarter as they sunk 12 of 16 shots (I saw the 2nd half). LeBron IMO saved it for the US team (10pts in 11 minutes as well as a nice pass). And to think they were down by 12 at the end of the 1st quarter :-o

Next up is undefeated Lithuania, a team that actually beat Puerto Rico... :-o

This game didn't look much different than a NCAA tournament game. The Aussie started out hitting basically every shot they put up but in the end the better team won. The USA will go into every game with the better talent, but if a team gets hot enough to shoot 50%+ (as Puerto Rico did) or even 60%+ (as the Aussies did in the first half) you are going to be in trouble.
