Not overly optimistic about this one unless Team USA don't take it seriously. 20+ point margin and how many we score will probably depend on the pace USA play at.

I predict a scuffle and ineffective punches thrown early

Agree with AngusH - we'll be only as good as the US lets us be, so I'd expect a score around 90-70

97 to 73 US. Landale to find it a lot harder to night. Goulding to shine for Australia.

Unless he's injured you would start Bogut ahead of Baynes.

USA by 18 for mine.

It depends on if the Australian team can hit the 3 and pick up on d without Bolden we could go down for over 20, if Australia has taken some more rust off it could go all the way to the end of game with only a few points in it say 2 to 4 points.

Not sure who had input into the stadium design but everyone behind the first row aint gonna see a thing. I wonder if they thought about the fact fans sitting in front of you may actually be tall as a lot of players are. Who would have thought. This is looking to be a complete disaster for the fans.

Wow. That's ridiculous. Works for boxing where the ring is raised but for basketball its terrible.

I've seen heaps complaining about the seating layout online, what did people expect in such a big stadium lol. They've also openly said from the start the court would be raised, pretty sure they even put out images of what it would look like
