    US vs. Russia (Brackins)

    Looks like they are underway and Brackins has a board. Has he been starting every game?

    Russia over USA 69-68. Outscored the US 20-9 in the 4th quarter. USA will play the loser of Israel v Serbia for 3rd.

    Re: US vs. Russia (Brackins)

    USA vs Russia is typically a classic match-up, in the vein of Batman vs Joker, Trump vs Rosie, etc.

    I wonder if the Russians had this guy on their team?

    Craig was 0-3 from behind the three point line and 0-1 from inside the arc.

    Sounds like Team USA needs a montage!

    Not a good game for Brackins... and a horrid 4th quarter for the US!

    Maybe they were saving a little in the tank for the next round?

    Re: US vs. Russia (Brackins)

    If you look at the box scores throughout these games, you'll notice that the U.S. plays every single player significant minutes every single game, close or not, while Russia for example, had multiple players that didn't see playing time for today's game...

    Kind of hard for a group of 5 to establish much of a real rythym or comfort on the court when the lineup is constantly changing imo.
