There is only one precedent in the Olympic Games: it occurred in the group stage of Beijing 2008, with Argentine victory 85-68 at Wukesong Indoor Stadium. Manu Ginobili broke it, with 21 points and 7 assists, accompanied by 8 rebounds that Chapu Nocioni dropped and great moments by Luis Scola (17 points). Luifa is the only one who will repeat action.

They are just statistical data that will not play on Tuesday in Tokyo, but that helps to take a little clean and jerk thinking about continuing to dream of something else.
