I only saw the last two quarters. Gotta say, their zone defense is horrific. They're not guarding man at all and exposing the lanes, and dribblers are just walking into the gaps. It takes two passes at most from GB to get the defenders scrambling.

The up-2 on the zone was either guarding zone and not marking man or didnt realize that the opposing team attacked with 3 back, and the dribblers simply went through the gap between them with little effort. Once they were in the lane, it exposed the center, and sadly they also had two options: 1) they had another perimeter attacker cut with the dribbler for a one pass layup or they kicked to either corner when the corner zone defender was forced to collapse back to the paint to help out.

GB was playing a much more effective zone that complemented a man-on-man setup, loading the heavy side and suffocated any attempts to penetrate.

I dont even want to talk about the turnovers.

They are still daydreaming on the court probably.

Unless he changes his mind, this will be the last Olympics for Wang Zhizhi.

He played his hearts out, scored in double digits, and even had this rare dunk in last night's game against Great Britain.

At the end of the game, Yao Ming rushed down from the CCTV5 commentator box, greeted, interviewed, comforted him and hugged Wang Zhizhi to bid farewell to the old soldier to Olympics.
