USA vs Argentina semi final

Anyone watching this on Channel 7? It's half time at the moment but USA are up by 9 after a rubbish call on the Argentinian defender sent Anthony to the line with 2 seconds to go in the half to shoot 3.

USA were up by 20 in the 2nd and Argentina pegged them back with some inspired play by Nocioni and Scola after Ginobili was injured in the first minute of play. He left the stadium and hasn't returned.

Scola is playing like a beast and Nocioni is playing some great inspired ball, blocking a Kobe reverse dunk. Unfortunately Nocioni has 3 fouls.

Argentina has showed real spirit in the face of adversity. I guess you expect that from a Gold Medal winning team.

I expect to see the USA pull away in the second half, however I really want to see Argentina push them.

Anthony is being a goose and Coach K should bet him off the court.

Should say 'get' instead of 'bet'.

Its late and its been a long week. At least I didn't type 'pulled off by Coach K'

It's a real shame Ginobili isn't playing in this game. They could have really given the USA a scare. Now they need a miracle.

Scola is so under-rated

Delfino and Scolo were HUGE in this game!! If Manu played Argentina would have won!!! Once again some of the US players were spanners!! (Mainly Melo)
