The U.S. men got their first real test in Olympic basketball today, surviving a determined Lithuanian bid at an upset with a 99-94 win.


Lithuania had a 4th qtr lead. This after the US 84 point blowout the previous game. Guys better keep focused.

Lithuania and their style of play always seems to give the US team trouble. Couple that with a bad shooting night from beyond the arc, and it was a close game. Lebron came through in the clutch though, like he should. Weird saying that last part now.

Bigger to me was the Spain loss. Would not want to see them in the semis.

It's best for the games to be competitive. It doesn't reflect well on the sport nor does it represent the Olympic spirit when a team wins by 83 points. Team sports should be competitive. Spain has won two straight European Championships and the last World Cup. They win many close games along the way and their U-23 team had an early exit in the Olympics.

There's nothing wrong with a team being successful in a specific sport but you'd like to think that other teams have a chance to win if they play well.

You never hear about Lithuania but they play solid basketball. I caught the end of the game and I was not surprised that team USA had trouble with them.
