    Team USA lost from Puerto Rico...

    Puerto Rico – USA
    92 – 73

    Team USA lost from Puerto Rico in the Olympic basketball tournament.
    It was a very good & fast paced game. At some point USA was losing by up to 25 points difference!
    The only players that tried were, Duncan & Iverson. The rest looked lost in the court & no defense!
    That’s ironic, seeing as the USA coach really emphasized in defense to win the NBA title from the Lakers & Saq.

    I don’t think they can be considered “Dream Team”, as they have nothing in common with the real Dream Team of ’92, with Jordan, Magic Johnson & Larry Bird.

    From what I saw Iverson played shocking, as did most of the other NBA 'Stars'.

    Gotta give it to Puerto Rico, they played really well, some of their 3 pointers were great.
