Rudy vs USA Reaction

Alright, so spain got blown out....big woop.

Rudy is still the man....A couple careless turnovers, but also a couple great plays. For every careless turnover, he came with a heady defensive play. Either drawing a charge on Kobe, or stealing it outright..... i also saw the refs hit him up with a couple questionable calls that pushed USA's momentum....but he played through it.

And he did knock down a couple threes and also had a few great entry passes......

From what i saw, in the early parts of the game, Rudy kept them in it....Then as soon as he went out, USA pushed the lead... pretty sure he had their first three, then an assist right away on the next play.

Clearly, in this game (like the rest), Rudy hustles. He got his hands on a lot of rebounds. Either snatching them himself, or making tips to a teammate. He's active. Not his greatest shooting performance, but was still able to put down a couple tres......seems like he comes out of nowhere for rebounds....and the way he floats defensively makes passing difficult for the opposing offense. His D on Kobe, was pretty darn good. Got no complaints...he only got beat a couple times, both of which, he forced his man to help side....fine with me, that's what oden is gonna be for (to clean up the mess). yea kobe, im talking about you......

Besides that, in the third quarter, he showed that bumps and bruises come with his style of play......same with Roy's though, which makes him that much more important as a backup.....if Roy ever goes out for an extended period due to injury. Rudy is an amazing insurance policy...My guess is after a year, he would start on a lot of teams....

And yea, he looked better than Calderon. which i think says something, cuz calderon is pretty proven NBA wise....he had more assists, and a greater overall impact on the game.....don't get carried away though, their style of play is vastly different....

But yea, I have extremely high hopes for Rudy.
