    A pair of Sacramento Kings players took center stage as SG Bogdan Bogdanovic led Serbia with 28 points on 10/17 shooting including 7/14 from downtown.

    Serbia once led 32-7 after the first quarter and nailed 15/31 treys in the win.

    Bogdanovic's teammate Harrison Barnes led the U.S. with 22 points.

    Serbia will take on the Czech Republic in the fifth place game while the Americans take on Poland in the seventh place game.

    Vojtech Hruban led the Czechs with a double-double of 24 points and 12 rebounds in their 94-84 victory over the Poles.

    Knockout Stage

    Semifinals Final Scores: September 13, 2019

    From FIBA.basketball

    It will be Spain against Argentina for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup title in Beijing's Wukesong Arena on Sunday.

    Spain needed double overtime to fend off Australia, 95-88.

    The crowd inside Wukesong Arena was in for a treat as Spain will look to win their second ever FIBA Basketball World Cup title after they won it all in 2006 in Japan.

    Marc Gasol led Spain with 33 points as the Spaniards outscored the Aussies, 15-8 in the second overtime period.

    Patty Mills had 34 points in a losing effort as the Boomers will try to win their first ever FIBA Basketball World Cup medal in the Bronze Medal Game.

    In the night cap, Luis Scola's double-double of 28 points and 13 rebounds saw Argentina reach their first FIBA Basketball World Cup Final since their overtime heartbreaker to Yugoslavia in 2002 after beating France 80-66.

    Orlando Magic's Evan Fournier and New York Knicks' Frank Ntilikina led Les Bleus with 16 points each as they will take on the Boomers for the bronze medal and try to win their first medal since they captured bronze in 1954.

    Argentina is looking for their first FIBA Basketball World Cup gold medal since they won the first ever edition while hosting it in 1950.

    Spain 95-88 (2 OT) Australia
    Argentina 80-66 France

    5 straight finals but tough to lose a top 3 NBA player, a probable HOF shooting guard, a possible HOF wing defender, then your starting Center, and the games best ever 3 point shooter.

    They are Dray, Russell and 9 dudes Iíve barely ever heard of going forward. Gonna be a rough season. They canít defend anyone right now.

    This might end up being the best thing that happened to them. I can just see them getting into the lottery and getting a top pick, and being right back in it next year when Thompson is back.

    That's what happened with the San Antonio Spurs in 1996-97. David Robinson played only six games that season with back and foot injuries and also had Chuck Person out for the year with his back injury.

    The Spurs went on to win the 1997 NBA Draft Lottery and drafted Tim Duncan.

    Will it happen with the same thing with the Golden State Warriors? Possibly.

    Possible, stranger things have happened. Since my post they lost Russell & Green to injuries, not sure how serious or long. And last yearís 1st round pick is also expected to miss 3 weeks.

    2nd round pick Eric Paschal had 2 nice games B2B if itís sustainable they found 2nd round gold. Iím skeptical though. And they are counting on two 2 way contract players to fill 35 minutes a night right now. And they donít have the financial flexibility to add either to a full NBA contract. I guess they can go for a medical exemption for Thompson, that seems more likely every day, though I think that requires independent medical evaluation.

    All-star games, at least all-star games that involve physical contact and expending energy on defense (so anything but the mlb all-star game) are kind of silly. The Pro Bowl is the worst, but the nba and nhl may be kind of fun, but they're also just glorified practice scrimmages, albeit with some fancy showing off. Still, I think the NBA is trying a little too hard.


    The NBA announced today a new format for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game designed to increase the level of competition throughout the game, provide additional excitement at the finish and make the outcome of every quarter count for charity.

    In the 69th NBA All-Star Game, Team Giannis and Team LeBron will compete to win each of the first three quarters, all of which will start with the score of 0-0 and will be 12 minutes long.

    At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the game clock will be turned off and a Final Target Score will be set. The Final Target Score will be determined by taking the leading teamís total cumulative score through three quarters and adding 24 points Ė the 24 representing Kobey Bryantís jersey number for the final 10 seasons of his NBA career. The teams will then play an untimed fourth quarter and the first team to reach the Final Target Score will win the NBA All-Star Game. With no minimum or maximum time on the clock in the fourth quarter, the NBA All-Star Game will end with a made basket or a made free throw.

    The community organization selected by the winner of each of the first three quarters will receive $100,000 Ė a total of $300,000 donated to charity for those three quarters. The winning team in the NBA All-Star Game will earn $200,000 for its community organization.
