This one is a little different for Thunder fans. It’s about Team USA, with three Thunder players, playing Spain, with one Thunder player.
To which, three > one. Sorry Serge. Also, I’m American.
It’s the last tuneup for Team USA before the Olympics start and it’s against the world’s No. 2 team. Spain obviously is very good with the Gasols and Ibaka, but don’t overlook Juan Carlos Navarro, Jose Calderon, Victor Claver, Sergio Rodriguez and others. That’s a very good team and it’ll be a legitimate test for the Americans.
So in those terms, it’ll be a fun game. But it’ll also be kind of fun to see Ibaka try and block one of KD’s shots. And it could be very possible to see a small scuffle — Spain has some feisty players — which would be interesting to see if Ibaka and Westbrook/Durant go at each other a bit.
Tip is at 3:30 CT on ESPN2.
