Pau Gasol shoots poorly in victory over Slovenia

Pau Gasol

First the good news for Lakers fans: Pau Gasol's 19 points and 16 rebounds contributed to Spain's 86-64 victory over Slovenia Wednesday in the FIBA European Championships.

The bad news: he made only six of 19 shots.

I wish I could've provided more analysis on Gasol's outing in the European Championships much like the way I did last year when Lamar Odom played in the FIBA World Championships. But login issues persist at for me. The only way for me to see Gasol play will happen if Spain advances into the gold medal game, which will be televised Sunday on delay at 9:30 p.m. on ESPN2.
