The pick and roll just posted an article about Boomers locking in a spot if they win tonight.

If Canada beat Lithuania tonight it's all wide open again isn't. Would come down to point differential on 2-1 ties

Spot on Greggo. If we win tonight and Lithuania beat Canada then we are through to the 2nd round. If Canada upset Lithuania, then we'll need either A) to beat Lithuania B) hope Senegal beat Canada or C) Get through on point differential. There is a lot to play out but the Aussies would be in the box seat as it stands.

if points differential comes into it, then shouldn't we go out of our way to thump Senegal? (Lithuania did and Canada will too.)

It all comes down to how confident the coaches are about Lithuania beating Canada, which I'm very confident about based on current form

Wouldn't it throw the cat amongst the pigeons if aussies lost tonight.

Australia does have to go hard to win big, the fact they beat Canada by 16 is an advantage, that’s a deficit they’d have to make up if they did beat Lithuania.

Does the winning margin against Senegal even matter?

If we end up with 3 teams tied on 2-1, is it point differential OVERALL or just point differential in games between THOSE THREE teams?

It's the latter, I think? (Could be wrong)

I'm pretty sure point differential only takes into account results between tied teams, so our margin vs Senegal is unlikely to matter at all.

Believe it's total point differential from 3 teams involved as stated.

So in this hypothetical it would be Aus-Can-Lit games only, and how much we belt Senegal by won't matter.

In which case the 16 point win is handy and makes it near impossible for Canada.

If Canada somehow won by 8pts over Lithuania and Lithuania beat Australia by 12pts, what would happen?

Same scenario but Lith beat Oz by 18 points, what would happen?

Nostraballmus remembers a three way tie between Italy, Cuba and Boomers in Group C, Moscow 1980 Olympics. Bommers beat Italy by 7, Italy beat Cuba by 7, Cuba beat Australia by ....7. All three finished 2-1 and level on points split between the three. Came down to results v Sweden, 4th team in group. Italy beat Sweden by 15, Cuba won by 12, Australia won by 9. Boomers third in group and out. Where'd they end up finishing ? ....7TH ! I sh#t u not.

KET:

"If Canada somehow won by 8pts over Lithuania and Lithuania beat Australia by 12pts, what would happen?"

Lithuania -8, +12 = +4
Aus -12, +16 = +4
Canada -16, +8 = -8
Lithuania/Aus split on head to head.


"Same scenario but Lith beat Oz by 18 points, what would happen?"

Lithuania -8, +18 = +10
Aus -18, +16 = -2
Canada -16, +8 = -8

We're pretty safely top-2 unless the margins in both the Canada/Lithuania and Lithuania/Aus game are big. I.e., Canada beats Lithuania by 18, Lithuania beats us by 18. Canada finish +2, Lithuania finish 0, we finish -2. If Canada only beats Lithuania by 2, they are still -14 and we're still +16. So we'd have to lose by 31.

9 first half turnovers (again) + poor defense. Not what you'd expect from a serious medal contender. Hopefully this is just an effort/laziness problem that can be corrected when going up against the tougher teams. It's like the Germany warm-up game, except this time against an inferior opponent.

Boomers played like this was a training run. It might explain why Kay DOMINATED with a team-high +19 in 20 minutes.

Although seriously, there is an interesting pattern developing with the way the team plays while Kay is on court. It's as if all the outraged keyboard warriors ought to perhaps listen to what our actual assistant coach Luc Longley said after training camp about Kay making the right decisions.

-3 in 17 min Canada G1
-3 in 20 min Canada G2
-6 in 12 min USA G1
+18 in 21 min USA G2

+13 in 18 min G1 vs Canada

The Boomers are becoming a little bit too big for their britches I think. They turned up today expecting a win handed to them, and when they do that, they suck. When the Boomers play a game they know they have to fight for it's a completely different beast entirely. But outside of the one win the USA, the Boomers have been entirely unconvincing in all games. Lithuania on Thursday will be the litmus test. One hit wonders or the real deal? We'll soon find out.

Bogut in an article today was saying that there are some banged up bodies that need to get healthy, plus also said that Lithuania will be very tough and saying they want to peak towards the end of the tournament. Well, you wont be peaking towards the end of the tournament if you can't rest your main guys and if you can't win the games to get you there.

As far as I see, Australia needs to win 2 of the next 3 games to make the top 8, and then after that the quarter final is a must win game to get to a medal round. And then after that you must win 1 of the next 2 to medal. So their record, at worst, can look 4 out of 6 of the next games, but have to win the RIGHT GAMES to medal.

The draw has definitely made it tough, and so has picking back up guards and forwards that they don't actually trust to pick up minutes. The Boomers were going much deeper into their rotation in Rio. And given their lack of urgency against Senegal it looks as though this team may already be low on energy but I hope I'm very wrong.

Sobey, Gliddon and Barlow have not seen a meaningful minute in the world cup. Would we have been better off dusting off Kevin Lisch, Damien Martin and Todd Blanchfield in those spots?

Landale has had one poor game in the entire extended campaign and people are already ready to throw him under the bus? lol. I'd say Landale has been more consistent than any player we have not named Chris Goulding. Yeah, I said it. If you take all games into account, Chris Goulding has been our most consistent and dependable player. If we're to go deep into the tournament he needs near-starter minutes in my opinion. This will help rest Delly and Mills more, if we really cannot bare the thought of Gliddon or Sobey seeing the court.

I actually think David Barlow warrants more minutes. He knows the system, is long, athletic as hell for his age, strong, can defend multiple positions and can hit the three. If he isn't injured why wasn't he thrown in against Senegal just to fucking TRY the idea at least?

Not sure how many times I have to keep pointing this out.
Not only do the results carry forward, but there is a very high probability that if we finish 2nd in group L, then we will play the USA in the QF, and that will be end of us.
Finish 1st, and we will play Turkey or Brazil, which in the right circumstances could be doable. Plus, the great thing is that if we miss the US in the QF, we can't meet them until the GF, meaning a theoretically winnable SF.

Landale is a bit weak on D, but offensively he's been good. One off game notwithstanding.

Landale struggled vs the length and agility of Senegal

That is not a good look since in the NBA teams will be even more long and agile. But also more skilled and stronger.

He definitely did not help himself out. Still in our weakest position it was between him and Jonah for the starting spot(With Jonah gone and Bogut looking like a 20min a game player at his age Landale has that spot)

Also there isn't much of a gap between Jonah and Jock.
One is a player just in the NBA who came into training came after an offseason, another is a player just outside the NBA who came into training camp fit from summer league and ready to go.
