turkey 's chance
how many chances Turkey has against Usa? Imo 3 per 10 .Turkey is a good team , four nba player and a brother hedo in version of 2009 finals usa can suffer the tanijevic's zone 2-1-2 , four 205 cm+ mans and the crown but if kd and russel played like yesterday usa wuold win the game with 15 + points
opinions about this game?
lets hope the crowd is absolutely nuts, otherwise I don't really see turkey being able to pull it off if they don't shoot lights out. Also their free throw shooting needs to get a hell of a lot better than yesterdays game and ilyasova needs to show up unlike last game..
They have talented size and you can't really say that about any of the teams USA has played so far. Will Chandler get more time to compete with Asik and Erdan? Will Turkey play two bigs and try to punish Durant in the post? I still think US will win by 16, but I can't say i'm not interested.
0% chance of winning.
I repeat, ZERO percent chance of obtaining a victory against Team USA.
I could see it but Hedo and Irsan will have to play well.
The thing is, when team USA misses a shot, you HAVE to get a point on the other end. Even one free throw. No empty possesions.
USA is going to win....way to go out on a limb there.... Yes in all cases USA is expected to win and I personally can't see them getting beat. But it is fun to try and think up reasons as to why the underdogs might be able to compete with the big bad U.S.
Turkey just doesn't have the guard play at this point and that may be USA's strongest aspect.
Turkey has the 6th man in a racous crowd in Istanbul
Turkey will keep the game close for a little, but I think the USA will end up winning by double digits.
