Redeem team over Angola 97 - 76

by james on August 13th, 2008

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Michael Redd concentrates to float the ball

Hey, it was Angola. What can you say? Name your favorite Angolan basketball player. Hmm?

Still the US won the hoop game and they are improving.

If they have any weakness, it is from the outside. Michael Redd is the only true 3 point shooter on the team.

One of these nights, the U.S. team may need to start making some outside shots. Forcing turnovers and converting them into fast breaks has enabled the Americans to average 99 points in 40 minutes of basketball, but their outside game remains suspect - even with a 20-foot, 6-inch three-point line, considerably shorter than the NBA specifications.
Three-point shooting was a problem in Athens in 2004 and nothing has changed in Beijing. After Kobe Bryant went 0-for-8 Tuesday, the Americans are 12-for-45 in the tournament.

When the Redeem Team gets to the really good teams and needs to make some outside shots, will they be able to do it?

Dwyane Wade led the team with 19 points.

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
