Basketball On Again Today

At 1 PM Eastern, ESPN 2 has the USA playing France at MSG. Then, NBA TV has China vs. Puerto Rico at 3:30 Eastern. This will be the first chance the national audience gets to see team USA play against a different team (yesterdays scrimmage against China wasn't televised). I expect a team that will increase their defensive intensity and surely lower the number of turnovers we saw in the two exhibitions they played earlier. I have the US taking todays game.

China against Puerto Rico will be a great opportunity to measure the competition. I don't know a ton about each team, though they both have some NBA players. This will be a chance to learn what's up with these countries.

Another thing you must check out is Project Spurs. My friend Jeff Garcia has been in New York, covering the hell out the World Basketball Festival. I suggest you check it out, great insight and interviews.
