Seems interesting to me that the Boomers are now playing a practice match against a possible cross over opponent after playing two warm up matches against a team from the same pool.

Would have thought it would make more sense to play teams that you were less likely to come across during the World Cup.

I guess its all just about opportunity, and in the case of Canada, commercial opportunities.

My take on the game. The Boomers were really sloppy and almost slightly disinterested. They seemed more focused on being involved in the chippiness of the game than actually playing.

So many passes around the perimeter were picked off, and even the ones that made it were shaky. Hopefully this was a bit of fatigue and jetlag and we are back on point in a few days. We'll see.

If not caring and losing is a prudent strategy why didn't Germany let us win? What I always wonder is how difficult it must be for the team to show some effort, but not too much, make it close, but don't look like you're making it close.....it must be exhausting, not to mention the team must be so highly tuned to be able to turn it on and off like a switch. I don't hold out too much hope for this team....it looks like we will only go as far as Patty Mill's shooting streaks will carry us. I hope I'm wrong, but that's basketball...its a make or miss game. I have never been a fan in any team sport of 'foxing'....just try to win each contest as it is presented. A little part of me died when we 'threw' the game against Angola a couple of years back.

Cannot have Bogut and Sobey on at the same time. It's death. Bogut plays NO defence on perimeter shooters, but Delly helps cover for him as he's more active.

The bench of those Threepeat Bulls would *not* dominate international basketball *today*. Maybe back then they'd still be a dominant force, but Team USA right now is made up of (mostly) top players from a number of teams, I'd argue all but a few clearly far better than all those guys Isaac mentions above, and they are considered the most beatable USA team in a decade or more.

Some thoughts from the game:
- Starting 5 was Baynes, Kay, Ingles, Mills, Delly; this unit looked alright to start the game, with scores around 12 each halfway through the quarter.
- It's not that Germany looked so good, but the Boomers looked out of sync and very, very sloppy. Lots of loose turnovers. Germany picked off a lot of passes, easily.
- Mills was ice cold until late in the 3rd. Ended up with a couple 3s, a layup; I can't remember more made baskets than that. Plenty of misses. Coinciding with Germany stretching the lead. Looks like not as much was run for him. We will again be relying on Mills for much of our scoring. For the opposition, shut Mills down, shut the Boomers down.
- We ran a lot with Ingles at point, but he looked off this game, way off his USA performance. Several bad passes and turnovers. I've seen him run the Utah offense often. This game was the worst I've seen him play in that role. Ingles continues to struggle with his shooting, as in Rio. We need NBA Ingles.
- Delly's new 3 appears to need a lot more work. Hit one, but bricked several others. He also isn't running the team as well as in Rio. If we are to do anything like in Rio, we need Rio Delly back. It's understandable that we are trying Ingles more as a playmaker, but I wonder if the coaching staff has also lost a bit of faith in Delly.
- No boxscores available, but I'd be surprised if Mills, Ingles and Delly combined for better than 25% from the field. Baynes shot the 3 better than each of them.
- Barlow played some good minutes; even spread the floor for a full iso in one play
- Baynes seemed easily agitated as Germany led comfortably, shoving Schroder needlessly at one stage. I'm surprised there was no ejection. Boomers were already about 20 down at this stage. Schroder's subsequent expression was one of bewilderment. Later other Germany players were on edge expecting Baynes to act out again. Boomers continued to target Schroder after whistles, both Mills and Bogut giving him shoves.
- Goulding looked good, hit 2 corner 3s, a nice drive to fadaway 2, another 3 off a broken play, a floating runner. His 2 missed 3s were in then out. Along with Landale, could be our most in-form player.
- Bogut interior D is elite, but he is struggling to get out to shooters, so expect a lot of opposition pick-n-pops.
- Germany shot the 3-ball well, but not particularly well. Seemed to be at a clip that we should expect from every team. Apart from Goulding, our best 3-point shooter was Baynes. That should say something.
- It doesn't matter who we play, if their 3s are dropping and ours aren't, a loss is probably coming. That's also the nature of an even World Cup. Out of the teams ranked 2-16, anyone can beat anyone.

Perfectly said rjd. Agree with it all.

"OK ME, we should just expect the final quarter v USA as what we'll produce when we decide to have a go ? "

Well, basically, yes. If you cant see the clear difference in meaning between the game vs USA and the Germany "game" (if you really want to call it that) then you have rocks in your head. Against USA, they were trying to exploit their strengths and run plays. Against Germany, it looks as though simply having a run around was as much as they needed. If you think they were trying to win that game above all else they were doing then you don't know basketball. USA and Australia were trying to win game 2 at Marvel and you could see it. Against Germany, both teams just going through the motions, getting their legs under them, looking at a few things, and trying not to get injured before the actual cup. If you're unable to understand that, that's your problem.

-

RJD, the thing that probably translates most from this game and the cup probably is the shooting. Ingles has not shot well for the Boomers in a very long time and that is concerning. Mills will shoot himself into form on any given game so I am not worried there. Goulding is going to bring a lot more than people predicted. As for Bogut covering three point shooters, the Boomers will have an answer for that as they did against USA. Their unwillingness to use it against Germany means little.

Expect fireworks between Schroeder and everyone when these teams meet again. I never saw him do anything so he must have been running his mouth or have a punchable face. Even Patty gave him some hip and shoulder action.

As for the Bogut injury, I saw that again. Looks pretty minor to me. Kind of half-landed on a foot and then called the sub. Walked off of the court just fine by himself. It's the kind of injury most of us would simply play-on with but Bogut probably didn't want to tempt fate. I expect to see him play on Sunday.

We will dust off that trophy cabinet then ME. Sounds like these Boomers just need to actually try and that they have an answer for everything. I for one am looking forward to the ticker tape parades. It's a shame that we'll likely lose Lemanis to the NBA after the tournament win and no doubt he'll take Kay, Sobey, Landale, Goulding, Gliddon and Barlow with him. I do hope they'll be able to play and defend their gold in Tokyo. One good thing though that those muppets from Canada, USA, Germany whi've been going full bore all along and Serbia, Spain, France etc will likely look to want to come play in the NBL to learn how to do this bball thing, will be good for the league.

lemanis' way of thinking is simply absurd, picking players with better " team fit " before players with better abilities and athleticism, which is never going to work. 
As a coach, you pick your best players in each position, then adjust your tactics to accomodate
These players. Lemanis does it the other way around, hence we are stuck with journeymen like Barlow, kay, sobey and gliddon, instead of Adel, green and bolden. Lemanis is simply insane.
