Extractions: The USA survived their biggest Olympic basketball scare in 12 years to narrowly defeat Lithuania 85-83, setting up a final against France. The 'Dream Team' shaded their semi 85-83, while the French easily triumphed over Games host Australia 76-52 to move into the gold medal tip-off. The defending champions, America have not lost in Olympic competition since the semi-finals of the 1988 Seoul Games. They had an average margin of victory of 43.8 points in Barcelona, and 32.3 points in Atlanta. But for the second time in a week, the Lithuanians battled them down to the wire. They lost by nine points in the preliminary round, and could have won the semi-final if guard Sarunas Jasikevicius had not missed an open three-point shot at the buzzer. Historic Lithuanian coach Jonas Kazlauskas said: "In the situation we had at the end of the game, we had an historic chance to win. But as you saw, we lost that chance." The US got off to a quick start, taking a 12 point halftime lead. But Lithuania stormed back in the second period, led by Jasikevicius, who outplayed two of the NBA's best defenders, Jason Kidd and Gary Payton.
Extractions: The Russians could not reproduce the shock result they managed in 1972 leaving the US to progress to the semi-finals of the basketball tournament with an 85-70 victory. Despite the 15-point margin, the "Dream Team" were hard pushed by the Russians, who took a 12-2 lead after just four minutes in the game. The Russians, who had the best defensive record in the tournament, were further helped in their cause when the neutral crowd suddenly backed them after a clash between Vince Carter and Zakhtar Pachoutine. Results of the basketball quarter-finals United States 85-70 Russia Lithuania 76-63 Yugoslavia France 68-63 Canada Australia 65-62 Italy The Toronto Raptors guard had accused the Russian captain of hitting him in the groin when he drove to the basket and just before half-time, he angrily confronted Pachoutine. US coach Rudy Tomjanovich had to restrain Carter from further trouble, but the crowd were now in favour of the Russian.

Extractions: San Bernardino Sun "Twelve guys would have had to change their identity," the Phoenix Suns guard said, only partly in jest. "A lot of us who saved our money, we wouldve had to move as far away as possible. "They say New Zealand is as far away as you can get. That would have been my choice." Dream Team 2000 flirted with infamy and an upset as shocking as the Miracle on Ice until a Lithuanian three-pointer at the buzzer fell short and the U.S. mens basketball team escaped with an 85-83 semifinals victory Friday at the Sydney Olympics. "We werent scared," guard Steve Smith said, "but we were a little nervous." Nervous, perhaps, of the hiding the NBA all-stars would have taken from the national media not to mention their teammates back home.
