    Stuck inside like most of you guys...I really want to watch the USA Panama game today. Does anyone know where it will be showing? I can't find the broadcast information any where.

    EuroBasket starts tomorrow. Hartenstein made it to the final roster, will be in action at 14:45 CET against Ukraine. Hope our moronic coach gives him minutes.

    You can find the schedule and all team rosters on the official site. And here's an expert preview.

    I can't find this stuff on any channels.

    Would make sense for NBATV to carry this stuff, not like they have anything else to show right now.

    Americup is on ESPN! Eurocup there may be some reddit streams.

    Since we're in the EuroBasket thread, "our" referred to Germany's head coach Chris Fleming, who proved his ignorance multiple times during his tenure. I'll never understand how he got that assistant job with the Nuggets and now the Nets.

    Germany-Ukraine has started. Hartenstein hasn't gotten any playing time YET. Dennis Schroder is carrying the Germans.

    Schröder was fantastic (32/7). Our team only goes as far as Dennis takes us. No minutes for Hartenstein though :(

    He looked amazing. I know it was against Ukraine, but he just seemed on a completely different level than anyone else on the floor, from either team. I don't think he can be as dominant as Dirk when carrying the team on his own, but I think he can do a pretty good job of that (as he proved today).

    First upset as Georgia beats Lithuania 79-77. Motiejunas with 4 Points and 0 Rebounds pretty much irrelevant. Still believe Lithuania wins this group.

    Way to put it out of context... DMo drove from Houston to Dallas, then flew from Dallas to Frankfurt (Germany) to Tel Aviv (Israel) within the last 16-20 hours. He wasn't with the team for almost an entire week (he was with his fiance in Houston where she gave birth to their son and then got stuck because of the hurricane Harvey) when Lithuanians were preparing for this game :)

    As for the game, the stats weren't impressive, but he wasn't "irrelevant". He didn't force anything, was perfect 2/2 from the field for 4 points (1 assist & 1 steal). He couldn't do more because he got a lot of fouls pretty quickly and played a total of 13 minutes. That midrange 2-pointer he hit was really crucial to stay in the game and not let the Georgians run away with the lead.

    Didn't know that. Still -- if you report to play, these excuses don't count. "Irrelevant" might've been too harsh, but not a single rebound in 13 minutes and just two attempts speak their own language.

    But like I said, I expect Lithuania to win this group. The play Israel on Saturday and Italy on Sunday, should be two wins.

    This is absurd. I don't know how you can even call it excuses. Flying around the world after not being with the team during the preparation and arriving just hours before the game. If these are excuses to you, then I don't have anything else to say to you.

    No rebounds in 13 minutes isn't good, but DMo never was known for his rebounding anyway. Regarding only two field goal attemps, I'm happy he didn't try to do anything more with that jet-lag. Just be a big body on defense & move the ball on the offensive side - that's all that was required of him.

    lulz, by my count, the girlfriend got herself pregnant the day Donastas signed his $38m contract with the Rockets. oops

    So, he screws himself over his contract, knocks up a gf in December, marries the gold-digger, then in another attempt to do the right thing and be by her side for birth, he basically causes Lithuania to get upset by Georgia because he can't really play. How many more ways can this guy be so stupid.

    btw: How come over the past year on twitter and instagram, DMo has never told us of this gf, or his pregnant fiance, or his new baby ... or did I miss him showing off his gold-digger.

    If you're not in the condition to play, you just don't, it's called responsibility. If you decide to dress up, there is no room for excuses.

    I respect you as a poster, but that is a douchebag post. He has been with her for like 6-7 years now.

    Lithuania doesn't have many players to choose from. Even jet-lagged DMo still better than no DMo.

    Oh, that's right. I forgot he showed up with a super-hot gf at 2011 Summer League (I was there to meet her) who we all want to do the nasty, with. Is that less douchey, since I called her a hottie who everyone wants to hit?

    What's up with him taking so long to wife her and her needing to get pregnant to force the issue. He hasn't seemed to show her off at all, all these years like Wiltjer and Ryno do, and she is so Hot! Like his contract negotiations with the Rockets, he probably thought he was too good for what she offered...he wanted a Max girl from Maxxim like Parsons always had.
