its been an awesome game to watch so far, I've loved Bogut's performance. everyone in Australia is stepping up and our 3 point shooting looks hot! nbcolympics.com stream for me, but it required a lot of work to get it. nbc don't give full screen streams which sucks :(

Well what a first half for the Aussies, couldnt ask for more than that. You cant complain at channel 7 (for once) for showing the triathelon where we got a gold and a bronze over a pool game of basketball that we were expected to lose.

GO YOU BOOMERS!

Lithos probably not too fussed if lose game. They won all way through Eoro championships only to get knocked out in finals so if they are going to lose, better to lose now, still Aussies are playing VERY well.

Boomers won by 31 points - 106-75.
Amazing shooting effort by the boomers - 16/25 from downtown is hot in any language.
Bogut had 23 pionits in 16 minutes in a game where everyone scored for the Boomers.
Lithuania would be pretty emabarassed after that game.
The LTU monkey is now off the Aussie's back!
Now - can we shoot that well against the USA and steal a win. The USA are due for a shocker aren't they?

Channel 7 could have shown the last quarter, live, but instead chose to show the athletics heats.
Understand about the Triathlong, but surely we could have been allowed to watch the last quarter?

Nice confidence builder for the boys. I agree that Lithuania probably weren't too fussed, but still no-one (at this level) likes to lose... Our shooting and execution in general looked a lot crisper...

Looking forward to the next game - come what may.

Channel 7 are once again treating their viewers with contempt. Sandy Roberts just tiold us that "The boomers just played thier best first half of basketball since arriving in Beijing", which was great. However the way he was speaking was to say that it was live and that they would be returning "after" the half time break. Um, it is a replay - hyalf time has already come and gone (as has the final score!) - don't lie!
A sense another letter of compalint coming on - it would be by 5th complaint letter since the Olymics started.

Wow, 5 letters. I bet they are already changing the program to include ALL boomers games for the next century of Olympics

An amazing result, great shooting and really good looks on cuts and feeds in to the big men. What really impressed me though was the pressure we applied with our defence, something which has been lacking in past games. Doubling down on posts, getting hands in lanes and good transition all resulted by showing a bit of hustle.

We look so much more complete with Bruton and Bogut playing well. That alley oop between the two pretty much made my week, and its only monday!

The only concern I had was when Lithuania began playing a press we looked a bit shaky and turned the ball over a few times. If we falter like that against the US we could be in a world of pain, as they have such a strong defensive and transition game.

Interesting to see how we fair in the medal round. Im sure the performance today would be met with surprise and caution by all the remaining teams.

Great job by the Boomers today. Everyone was so switched on from the word go and just jumped all over the Lithuanians. I wonder what the Lithuanian word is for bushwhacked?!?!

Bogut was almost toying with the opposing bigs, scoring every which way. The guys got up and harassed the Lithuanians all game long, closing down angles and reading passes to get deflections and steals.

On offence, our guys were so energetic and aggressive with their movement - constant cuts to the basket and good screens on every possession - it was a pleasure to watch.

Basketball Australia should make this game mandatory viewing before the first game of EVERY intl tournament from now on. That'll remind the team of the level they need to play at from game one! If they'd done that, we might be playing Greece or China in the next game instead of the US!

Still, overall, we have taken a BIG step forward from the last Olympics and the future looks bright with this group. Hopefully we can even add a healthy Mackinnon, Jawai and Ogilvy for the Worlds in 2 years as well!

B Fresh, you're right, we did look a bit shaky at times when the Lithuanians trapped in the 2nd half. But the good thing is, that was when the only ball handler on the court was Mills, and we were playing mostly bench players. If the game had been close, CJ would have been back in along with Bogut. I'm pretty confident Mills and CJ can handle most full court pressure situations. CJ didn't score a lot today, but I have been really impressed with how assured he has looked with the ball as the tournament has worn on.

Mods, they did use their best players. I was wondering the same thing as you early on when I only had the box score. Then I watched the game. We came out and stomped on them from the outset. They tried hard to get back into it, but never managed to bridge the gap.

The game was further proof that Barlow is not a point guard and should not be given duties looking after the ball at this level. Sorry Goorj, but gotta keep the ball in the hands of Mills or CJ.

I reckon the reason barlow was given the ball is to convince the USA he's a ball handler and Ingles is not, which isn't the case, I believe Ingles will play more in the next game.

Dana, the Lithuanians DID play their best team in the first half. I remember checking at half time and guys like Jasikevicius, Siskauskas and Kleiza all played most of their minutes while Australia was breaking the game open. Kaukenas also played most of the game and he is no slouch.

Also, don't forget that Australia only played several key guys for similar minutes to the Lithuanians: Bogut (16 mins), Mills (17), Bruton & Anstey (18). In fact, Jasikevicius played 20 mins, which is more than everyone on the Aussie team bar Newley and Barlow!
