This might very well be the most important game for the CNT thus far. It's either defeat Germany or taking down Greece on Monday.

Germany features 3 post players, ala Dirk, Kaman, and Patrick Femerling, which may be the strongest interior line-up the CNT has faced yet. However, like the CNT, their perimeter play generally leaves something to be desired.

If China can come out hot and keep it up, they've shown that they can give even the toughest opponents problems.

Hopefully, with all this pressure, they will excel rather than collapse. 8 AM eastern time.

let's see if Yao can back up his words. He said he can take Kaman easy, and Yi can hold Dirk.

Wang is the guy who played with Nowitzki and Kaman, so he knows them well.

Doesn't seem like Yi even tries to guard anybody nowadays :(

gonna be an exciting game.

Wang knows Nowitzki, but I don't think he can guard him. WZZ's D is terrible

Germany favored by 1.5 pts.

The key to this game is YI JIAN LIAN. Never mind what he's done to this point, he absolutely needs to step up this game because he is the most critical player.

Yi's minutes need to mirror Dirk's this game, as CHina doesn't have ANYONE else that can check him. Forget about WZZ, I'd rather put Zhu Fanyu on Dirk.

Yi needs to play almost the entire game and be aggressive taking the ball to the hole. Dirk cannot guard Yi if he's aggressive driving to the rack.

CJH should have an advantage this game and should really look to take it to their guards. Our perimeter players need to look to take advantage of their guards.

He said that? I cannot believe it.
He now knows how to pump up Yi.

If they do win this game, it is a real sign that they are ready.

Kaman is going to kill Yao. He gets hyped to play against him and Yao is still hurt. It might get ugly. Germany is going to kill China.
