USA Remains Undefeated
The United States remains one of only four unbeaten teams after defeating Germany earlier today in Japan to advance to the worlds semifinals(I have no idea what time it is in Japan, but it has to be much later than my clock since the US has already served Germany a 85-65 thrashing). Although the US managed to escape with a victory, the stats weren't so impressive. With only 37.6 percent shooting and 10-of-40 from behind the arc, the good ole NBA boys used their defense to maintain their flawless record. They put on the pressure by limiting Germany's guards and preventing them from getting the ball to a usually explosive, well capable of scoring 300 points a game, Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk was only 3-of-12 and committed five turnovers. I must admit, it feels good to see the collaboration of NBA talent winning together.
