FIBA World Cup Recap: Saric's Croatia Knocks Off Blatche's Philippines in Overtime

In summary, Sixers fans rose at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to watch Andray Blatche. In the first game of the FIBA World Cup, Dario Saric scored 10 points, grabbed 9 rebounds, and dished 4 assists in an 82-78 overtime victory for Croatia over the Philippines. The game should not have been close, but a 26 point game from naturalized Filipino Andray Blatche (?!) and some key shots from the upstart Filipinos forced the game to go five extra minutes. The timing of the game and the people in it made the game an exercise in basketball absurdity. The Croatians had about half a foot on the Filipinos...

FIBA World Cup Thread for Saturday, August 30th

Good morning, everyone. The FIBA World Cup began this morning. More comes will be played today. The United States opens the tournament against Finland at 2:30 PM. Off to a late start this morning. Sorry there wasn't an available, new thread to discuss the first games of the FIBA World Cup. This is the type of thing that happens when Management (EIM) leaves town. My apologies. What Already Happened. Croatia defeated the Philippines, 81-78. Andray Blatche led the offensive charge of the Philippines, which lost its first game in the World stages, with 28 points. He connected on a three pointer...

In battle of past and future Nets, Bojan Bogdanovic outduels Andray Blatche as Croatia beats Philippines in OT

In battle of past and future Nets, Bojan Bogdanovic outduels Andray Blatche as Croatia beats Philippines in OT

Bojan Bogdanovic scored six points in overtime, including two crucial free throws with 41 seconds left to help Croatia beat a resilient Philippines team led by Andray Blatche, 81-78 in the opening game of the FIBA World Cup. Bogdanovic finished with 26 points and Blatche two more in a game that that wasn't supposed to be close. Bogdanovic made all four of his free throws and was 1-of-2 in the overtime session, scoring all but four of his team's 10 points.  For the game, he was 9-of-18, 7-of-14 from two and 2-of-4 from three, hitting a variety of shots.  He also grabbed four rebounds and...

The You Are Insane For Being Up This Early Croatia vs. Philippines Game Thread

I admire your dedication. If you're up this early, you have either totally lost it, or are really, really hype to be watching Dario Saric live for the first time. I'm hoping it's the latter, and frankly I can't blame you. Chances to see Saric on TV will be few and far between (for at least the next two years), so cherish these games, even if it means waking up before God. Saric and Croatia take on Andray Blatche (huh?) and the Philippines national team at 6:30 AM. The game can be seen on ESPN3 for those who are stateside. The Croatian sensation has been real solid in the World Cup...

Deadlines and Commitments - No. 55

Deadlines and Commitments - No. 55

It's now crunchtime in international basketball. With five Nets playing in FIBA competition --three in the World Cup, two in FIBA Europe's qualifying tournament-- and one assistant coaching in the Worlds, Brooklyn will be well represented.  It's not likely that the three Nets in the World Cup will face each other, barring upsets (plural). Bojan Bogdanovic and Croatia will face former Net Andray Blatche and the Philippines on Opening Day, August 30, in Seville, and Joe Wolf, the Nets new big man coach, will face one of his charges, Mason Plumlee, on September 4 in Bilbao. The two Nets...

How much does Kevin Garnett have left?

Ohm Youngmisuk takes a look at Kevin Garnett, about to enter his 20th --and perhaps final-- season in the NBA. What can the 38-year-old bring to Brooklyn? The frontcourt will be different this season. Assuming Brook Lopez is healthy, the Nets will have one of the league's best offensive centers in Lopez, a rising star in Mason Plumlee and a rookie big in Cory Jefferson. There will be no Andray Blatche, however. Youngmisuk thinks the return of Lopez and development of Plumlee alone will make things easier for KG. If Lopez is healthy, the Nets won’t have to rely as heavily as they did on...

Position analysis: Center

Now that free agency has died down, we're taking a look at where the Nets currently stand position-by-position. Today, we look at center. CENTER New additions: None Returning/on roster: C Brook Lopez, PF/C Kevin Garnett, PF/C Mason Plumlee Gone: PF/C Andray Blatche (remains unsigned), C Jason Collins (remains unsigned) The starter: Lopez. This one is easy. The wild card: Plumlee. Again, we don’t know how Lopez is going to play coming off foot/ankle surgery.

Andray Blatche to workout with Los Angeles Clippers next week

More than a month after free agency has started, Andray Blatche is still on the market looking for a new home after he declined his player option with the Nets. Blatche has reportedly received interest from the Pelicans and Raptors during the free agency period, and now add the Clippers to the list. Clippers to work out back up Centers this week. Names that will come thru: Andray Blatche, Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum & Emeka Okafor — Jorge Sedano (@SedanoESPN) August 5, 2014 There is no denying Blatche's talent, he averaged 11 points and five rebounds in his second season in Brooklyn last...

Position analysis: Power Forward

Now that free agency has died down, we’re taking a look at where the Nets currently stand position-by-position. Today, we look at power forward. POWER FORWARD New additions: PF Cory Jefferson Returning/on roster: PF/C Kevin Garnett, SF/PF Mirza Teletovic, PF/C Mason Plumlee, SF/PF Andrei Kirilenko Gone: PF/C Andray Blatche (remains unsigned) The starter: The Nets could go a number of different ways here. If we had to venture a guess, it’s Teletovic or Garnett.

ASK IRA: Should Heat investigate Blatche possibility?

Q: Ira, I've been trying to guess what Pat Riley is planning in regards to the two remaining roster spots, but I haven't been able to. I don't believe we will trade for a shooting guard from the Knicks, but if we going for wings and bigs why not sign Andray Blatche and Toure Murray? -- Jorge, Los Angeles.
