  • Intro:

    USA men's basketball looking to finish pool play unbeaten against Argentina.


    SOUNDBITE: (English) Carmelo Anthony, Team USA Forward (on the team mood after the near loss to Lithuania) "We're great. We're in a great place. You know it's crazy when you set a standard of beating teams by 20 and 30 or 40 points. When you have a close game like yesterday, you know nobody even knows, we had a bad game."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Kevin Love, Team USA Forward (on USA's near loss to Lithuania) "It was great. I said last night we needed a game like that. Lithuania played great, I mean they played great. We can't take nothing away from them. They really came and they were the first team that we played that really felt, we really felt like they thought they could win."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Carmelo Anthony, Team USA Forward (on playing Argentina) "We know they like to play physical, they like to slow the game down. We played them once in Barcelona, it was kind of a sticky game, kind of a dirty game. That's what they like to do. They like to play dirty, we like to play dirty. It's just a matter of who gets away with it."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) LeBron James, Team USA Forward (on wanting to win their final preliminary game versus Argentina despite having already won the group) "Yeah we care. We don't come here to lose. We come here to play at a high level and continue to improve. We don't want to waste time and say, ok, since we already have the tie-breaker we can go and just lollygag. We have an opportunity to get better we are going to do that."
