Two great teams chocked full of EL and NBA players. Spain only lost to the USA. Lithuania only lost to Australia. Both teams were expected to be in the Semi-Finals. Who wins?
I think Rik is on vacation, so I'm stealing his idea for these individual game polls. Sorry, pal.
"I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas
Still I cannot see Spain loosing...Spain gets away with this one.

Well it's our fifth olympics as an independent state, and this is our fifth straigth semifinal of olympic basketball tournament. Sadly, all previous four were lost, but I hope this is the match, when the sad tradition will be broken. Spain are heavy favorites of this game - after the EC2003 final I cannot remember a game, where we would beat them. But the only official one was during Mundobasket '2006 quaterfinals, where we have lost badly.
It should be a classic match.
