Marc Gasol Sits In Second Half, Won't Enter Until Fourth Quarter

Marc Gasol, perhaps Spain's best player, picked up four fouls in the first half of the gold medal game. You only get five in FIBA play, so Spanish coach Sergio Scariolo sat Marc to open the third quarter. Craig Sager reports that Marc won't enter until the beginning of the fourth, should the game remain close.

If Spain keeps the game close without Marc, Team USA has some real problems on its hands.
