Quick Olympic recap

Don't have much time so I'll be as quick as I can with this

Spain comfortably dispatched Croatia 72-59 that saw Gasol finish with 20-10. For all you stat keepers it was intriguing to note Ricky Rubio and Marc Gasol finished with 6 rebounds each.

Yao and China's olympic dream is over as they were dispatched by Lithuania . Sauranas Jasikevicius hit (5 of 6 from 3-point land) to make it a rout

Australia gave the Americans a scare it was 25-24 after one before a 15-0 US run at the start of the 3rd saw the US dispatch the Aussie's 116-85

And finally Argentina and Greece clearly the best game of the quarter finals. I don't know where it was the emotion of the two coaches expressing their anger at some silly shot selection, Ginobilli's incredible play, Carlos Delfino scoring 23 points on efficient shooting (9 of 14 from the field, 5 of 8) from deep but this was the game of the quarter finals. Argentina held on 80-78 thanks to Ginobili!!!
