FIBA World Cup 2014 Day 1 open thread

Watch Nene, then watch Team USA.

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

If you were up very early this morning, you saw Andray Blatche nearly lead the Philippines to a massive upset of Croatia. It was a lot of fun to watch. Alas, it fell short.

But there's still plenty of action remaining. The two games to watch:

Noon: Brazil vs. France (ESPN3)

3:30: USA vs. Finland (ESPN)

The first game pits Nene against France's young, but talented roster. The second game will likely be a rout, but you never know.
