The Opals still can't defend the screen.

That high pick&roll is killing them. No rotation whatsoever

I haven't watched much of this one yet, but I remember thinking something similar earlier in the tournament. It shouldn't be that hard to come over from the weak-side corner earlier. So few teams can actually make that pass to the far side, and then hit the shot from the corner. So the risk isn't that great. Just leave earlier.

They play like they've never even seen it before, much less successfully defended it. It's boggling.

Stupid foul from Tolo and then Jarry with another dumb foul on a 3pointshooter Rolling Eyes

Why is Natalie Burton starting, let alone on this team? I don't know much about Aussie basketball, can someone fill me in on what she's supposed to bring?

Joyce is a big fan of her Rolling Eyes and thinks that she is the best defender on the team

Japan is running the PnR really well here. Love how they're taking advantage of Australia's lack of lateral movement.

Also, am I the only one loving that there's no commentary?

Is someone going to guard number 7? She hit 3 or 4 threes already

Sorry Luuc but Hodges has been useless for the Opals so far

Opals are giving away silver right now. Japan has to play France but Belarus for the Opals wont be easy aswell.

In every time out Joyce is focussing on offense while the shitty defense is the problem Rolling Eyes

It's back to single digits...!


ETA: How are the players not completely sick of Joyce's voice by the end of a game. I know I am.

Cambage taking over at the right time. But Opals have to stop switching though. Their defense looks even worse then in the beginning. Players are wide open

I love it! Without anyone calling the game it sounds like Tom Thibodeau.
