-      SLOVENIA JOIN USA, SPAIN & GREECE WITH 3-0 RECORDS GORAN DRAGIC 22 PTS

2. Slovenia 89 South Korea 72 - The past NBA season saw Slovenian PG Goran Dragic get the usual DISRESPECT that most European players get, as he was not picked for the NBA All-Star game, but later made the All-NBA Third Team and today the PG led Slovenia to a 3-0 record, scoring 22 points in 25 minutes, on 10-14 FG, 2-4(3PT), 0-1 FT, 4 assists and was followed by SF Domen Lorbek with 14 points, while SG Zoran Dragic and Center Alen Omic added 13 points apiece in the win, along with 11 rebounds from Omic.   South Korea drop to 0-3 and were led by Center Jong-Hyun Lee with 12 points.

-          FIBA WORLD CUP - DAY THREE RESULTS - SEPT. 1st -  TOP 5 PLAYS


-  SPAIN GO TO 3-0 LED BY 34 YEAR OLD SKILLED BIG MAN PAU GASOL WITH 26 PTS

1. Spain 82 Brazil 63 - EJBB told the NBA.COM Hang Time Blog Podcast with Sekou Smith, that at age 34 their was no reason for Pau Gasol to play in the 2014 FIBA Cup, unless he was in this for a Gold medal and after a 33 point game in game one, Pau Gasol put up 26 points in 29 minutes, on 11-15 FG, making 3-5 from 3 point land, 1-2 FT, 9 rebounds, 3 blocked shots. For those that thought the 34 year old Spanish big man was too old and done, he scored his 26 points versus Tiago Splitter, NENE and Anderson Varejao, three NBA big men and with Pau Gasol on his game the EJBB prediction of a Gold medal game versus USA looks more like it will happen. Pau Gasol was followed by PG Sergio Rodriguez with 12 points, while Juan Carlos Navarro had 10 points from the SG spot and Marc Gasol added 8 points. Spain go to 3-0 and Brazil drop to 2-1 led by SG Leandro Barbosa with 11 points, while Anderson Varejao added 10 points.

2. Greece 90 Puerto Rico 79 - EUROJOHNBBALL heard others say that Greece was done as an international power, with none of the main players from the 2006 WC Silver medal team that beat team USA on this 2014 Greek roster. Gone are retired Theo Papaloukas, Dimitris Diamatidis (2010 his last NT) and Vassilis Spanoulis, who needed time off to recapture his KING of European basketball label again in the upcoming 2014-15 Euroleague season, but Greece still have Nikos Zisis on the 2014 team, that was on that 2006 squad, but was injured by a blow to the jaw by Anderson Varejao of Brazil.   Nikos Zisis has come back strong from that 2006 game versus Brazil and today the 31 year old Greek combo-guard did what he does best, play both guard spots and stick the 3 point shot, as he led Greece with 19 points in 25 minutes, on 7-9 FG, 4-5 from 3 point land, 1-2 FT and he got help in the backcourt by Greek American NBA PG Nick Calathes with 14 points, while NBA SF Giannis Antetokounmpo added 15 points off the bench and Ioannis Bourousis played the center spot and had 12 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.  Greece go to 3-0 and Puerto Rico drop to 0-3, as they were hurt by Carlos Arroyo being out with a sprained ankle, as Puerto Rico was led by former NBA SF Renaldo Balkman with 23 points and was followed by NBA PG J.J Barea with 21 points.

-   TURKEY UP 40-35 AT HALF BUT 28 TO's VS USA NBA STARS TOO MANY IN LOSS

1. USA 98 Turkey 77 - After a 59 point win versus Finland, team USA was confident going into game two versus Turkey, but the NBA stars were down 40-35 at the half, as the Turkish guards were not in a DAZE like the team from Finland that were down 60-18 at the half in game one.   The Turkish guards play at a higher level of basketball in Europe, than the Finland team does, other than Petteri Koponen and it helped Turkey lead by five points over USA at the half, but the TO's were still high for Turkey and in the end the Turkish guards and the entire Turkish team got sloppy with the ball ending with 28 TO's versus USA in the 21 point loss and the TO's were almost the 31 total that Finland had.   In the only loss that Coach K and his NBA stars ever had against Greece in 2006, the Greek PG's of Theo Papaloukas, Vassilis Spanoulis and Dimitris Diamantidis had 18 assists and only 3 TO's and the entire Greek squad only had 11 TO's in the 101-95 semis win and unless teams can slow the tempo down and not throw the ball away, then Spain is the only team that has 2006 Greek guard ability to beat this 2014 team USA in the Gold medal game, if Spain can get by a tougher teams in their bracket.   USA only threw the ball away 12 times and were led by their bigs Kenneth Faried and his ENERGY with 22 points, on 11-14 FG in 28 minutes, 8 rebounds and Anthony Davis followed with 19 points, while DeMarcus Cousins added 11 points on the inside and Kyrie Irving led the perimeter with 13 points,   Turkey was led by SF Cenk Akyol with 12 points and was followed by Sinan Guler, Oguz Savas and Emir Preldzic with 9 points apiece.

-                      FIBA WORLD CUP - DAY ONE RESULTS - AUG. 30th

-       USA PUTS ON A SHOW IN 59 POINT WIN VS FINLAND - 31 TO's BY FINLAND

1. USA 114 Finland 55 - The NBA stars on team USA must have heard the NBA.COM Hang Time Blog Podcast where John Dimopoulos @EUROJOHNBBALL picked Spain as the favorite to win the Gold medal on their home soil versus USA in the title game on September 14th, because team USA was on a mission to shut up John Dimopoulos and any other guys that have BBALL sites picking against this younger version of team USA.  Yes team USA was looking real good in this 59 point win, but the team from Finland must not of heard that same Podcast, where John Dimopoulos said the only way teams have a shot at beating the NBA stars of USA, was to keep the TO's down like the Greek PG's did in the last loss for USA in 2006, when Papaloukas, Spanoulis and Diamantidis had 18 assists and only 3 TO's.  Finland looked like a boxer going into a match getting ready to fight a young Mike Tyson, already defeated like most of the Tyson opponents in the 1980's, as Finland threw the ball away 31 times and the highlight show of team USA was on.   John Dimopoulos also said that Spain has the guards that can play like the 2006 Greek team guards and USA will probably not be tested until the knockout round.   Klay Thompson led USA with 18 points and Anthony Davis followed with 17 points, with the only flaw to the USA game versus Finland being the 6-18 night from 3 point land.  Finland was led by Peterri Koponen and Shawn Huff with 12 points apiece.

2. Spain 90 Iran 60 - @EUROJOHNBBALL & John Dimopoulos said in the Sekou Smith Podcast that their was no reason for Pau Gasol to play in this FIBA World Cup, if he was not confident he would win the Gold medal with Spain and in game one today, Pau Gasol showed why he is still the most skilled Center in the world scoring 33 points in 29 minutes, on 12-20 FG, 9-10 FT, 8 rebounds, 3 blocked shots in a 30 point win versus Iran. Pau got help from his brother Marc Gasol with 15 points, 10 rebounds, while Rudy Fernandez added 12 points and Juan Carlos Navarro had 10 points. Serge Ibaka did not play because of a tight hamstring and Iran was led by PG Mahdi Kamrani with 18 points, while Center Hamed Haddadi added 16 points, 15 rebounds.


3. Greece 87 Senegal 64 - Kostas Kaimakoglou (20 PT) Gorgui Dieng (21 PT, 14 R)

4. Lithuania 87 Mexico 74 - Jonas Maciulis (19 PT) Francisco Cruz (21 PT)

Most reporters that cover the NBA in the USA, think that the NBA stars on team USA should be the odds on favorite to win the Gold medal in Spain at the 2014 World Cup, but EUROJOHNBBALL is one of the few BBALL websites, that thinks this team USA, with no LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant along with Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Chris Bosh and Carmelo Anthony is not the same USA squad that beat Spain in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Gold medal games.  Spain was close in both of those Gold medal games and with Spain having the home court advantage, along with skilled Center Pau Gasol deciding to join his brother Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka in a stacked frontline, if Spain gets out of the tougher bracket on their side and they meet USA in the Gold medal game, it will be tough for this younger version of team USA to get inside baskets at the rim unless the Spanish guards are sloppy with passes and let USA get out on the break for easy highlight film dunks.

Spain has the guards that can keep their TO's low, as Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon, Juan Carlos Navarro, Sergio Rodriguez, Sergio Llull and even SF Rudy Fernandez have ball skills off the dribble and every one of those Spanish players have the ability to run pick and roll and stick the jumper if team USA goes under the screen, with the exception of Ricky Rubio, who is not a great outside shooter, but Rubio will be key in the early stages of the Gold medal game, if the two teams meet, because Spain must control the game early with few TO's and that is why Rubio and the Spanish guards are KEY.   The two Gasol brothers and Serge Ibaka are a force in the paint, but if USA gets easy buckets and are not forced to stick jumpers, then it could be a long night for Spain.   Most NBA fans and even Jerry Colangelo and Coach K had little idea who Theo Papaloukas, Vassilis Spanoulis and Dimitris Diamantidis were in the 2006 Semifinal in Japan, but the three Greek PG's that chose to stay in Europe rather than come to the NBA had 18 assists and only 3 TO's versus LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard, in the LAST LOSS FOR TEAM USA, a 101-95 win for Greece, as that is the only way to beat team USA and their NBA stars, the PG's on the other squads must be smart with the ball and can not be scared going into the game.    The Spanish guards have the Papaloukas, Spanoulis and Diamantidis ability to play with team USA and if they keep the TO's down, EUROJOHNBBALL thinks Spain will win the Gold medal.

USA has an easier bracket to get to the Gold medal game, as Lithuania could have been a test for them, but with the injury to PG Mantas Kalnietis, it will be tougher for Lithuania to stay in a 40 minute game with USA and though Lithuania will play well in POOL play, the lack of an elite European PG will make things tough for them in knockout stage versus teams like Croatia, Greece, Serbia, France or Brazil.

Spain is not a lock for the Gold medal game as much as USA is on their side of the bracket, because many teams on the Spain bracket have the ability to get hot in a knockout game situation and put the 2007 pressure back in the minds of the Spanish players, when David Blatt and Russia upset them on their home court to win the Eurobasket Gold.  USA has more talent than that Russian squad, but can James Harden and Derrick Rose hit the big jumpers against Spain that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant have done in past Gold medal games.
