Czechs leading Brazil up by 30 in the fourth quarter so will win. Assuming US win all their games and in CZE-GRE the former keep shocking we could play them in the Round of 16. Best case scenario?

What if LTU beat FRA tonight. Both 3-1 so FRA game still needs to be a victory?

Dependent on tonight we are either playing France to win the pool or playing France to stay alive.

Regardless it will be a huge game for us.

What's happened to Brazil? They were exhausted? Or Czechia played very well?

I was expecting some teams might become exhausted around this stage of the tournament.

Australia's rotation has not been deep for a tough tournament schedule with a game every two days. Mills, Ingles averaging over 30 minutes a game, Delly with about 28 minutes a game. Baynes and Bogut have been splitting games, but Bogut doesn't look particularly comfortable playing extended minutes. A 9-man rotation, including Creek's 10 minutes a game.

Great game, free hit to Australia now against France. Love those two commentators, the English bloke is superb and his American side kick is great as well.

Why would Fox get Russell and Heal to commentate when Gaze is the FIBA commentator?

So, if the Greeks beat the Czechs, can they make it?

Gaze is part of the FIBA world feed.

Meanwhile Fox decided to overlay the two games they broadcast per day with poorer commentary from a booth in Australia. Why? Who knows. A waste of money other than keeping Heal from the dole queue.

Don't no there names but they no basketball, it’s so refreshing to hear professionals actually talking about the game and not ramble on about some private school they went to or Heal plug his mates or players he has some thing to do with.

Lithuania coach went off in press conference.

Lithuania got the calls all day, yes it was the wrong call at games end but that was just the get square for their all game mistakes.

I can't blame Lithos for going off in the press conference. They got screwed. What’s the point of a video replay system if you don’t use if?

Their ending reminds me of what happened to Aus v Spain with the charge/block call.

FIBA cannot be relied upon to simply run a clean game.

So is it possible we face Greece in the quarter final?

The Lithuania coach said after our game that we were a great side, one of the best and now he's saying it was a rugby match with no calls.

as per the fiba rulebook the refs can't review a call they didn't already pick up. biggest issue is that you've got three refs all missing a crucial call that my 4 year old could see.

I saw the comments from Dainius Adomaitis as more of a criticism of the inconsistency of refereeing from one game to the next as opposed to Australia's tactics.

No commentators saw it till there was a replay, I didn't hear the Lithuanian coach complain about some of the crap calls that went on Gobert that made him sit for long periods and got Lithuania back into the game while there big was whacking every one and no calls. Swings and roundabouts. Move on.

Yes, he was saying the game against Australia was "like rugby" and then they couldn't touch anyone the next game. What was the thing he was saying after that about the "system"? Was he referring to them not using the replay system?

I don't follow Lithuanian basketball but is it possible that the coach went off in his press conference as a way to deflect attention that he couldn't take the team into the final 8.

Basketball is the number ONE sport in Lithuania, they are incredibly passionate about it, I'd say he’s trying to cover his arse, there country will consider this as a very poor tournament.
