The US managed a 15 point win against Lithuania.  My prediction was 9, and it would have been 9 or even closer if not for the US shutting down Linas Klieza, who has had his way with everyone else.  Durant also had a monster game with 38 points, and Odom notched a double double (13 pts, 10 rebs).  Turkey will present a different set of problems.  They have a great perimeter game with Turkoglu leading the offense, and can also dump it inside to Ilyasova or Asik.  Ilyasova, a forward for the Milwaukee Bucks, is leading the Turks in scoring at 14.3 ppg, and will probably be the defensive assignment of either Durant or Iguodala.  It would make sense for it to be Iguodala, so Durant can be saved for offensive duties.  Coach K has been playing his bench liberally, but I would be surprised to see Durant play any less than 35 minutes in the championship game.  He has been far and away the best player for the US and whether or not they can win the gold medal depends on how well he performs.
