The You Are Insane For Being Up This Early Croatia vs. Philippines Game Thread

New, comments

I admire your dedication.

If you're up this early, you have either totally lost it, or are really, really hype to be watching Dario Saric live for the first time. I'm hoping it's the latter, and frankly I can't blame you. Chances to see Saric on TV will be few and far between (for at least the next two years), so cherish these games, even if it means waking up before God.

Saric and Croatia take on Andray Blatche (huh?) and the Philippines national team at 6:30 AM. The game can be seen on ESPN3 for those who are stateside.

The Croatian sensation has been real solid in the World Cup friendlies, finishing up pre-group play with 16 points (7-9 FG), two rebounds, and four assists in 21 minutes against Latvia. Other than Saric, make sure you keep an eye on 2015 draft eligible shooting guard Mario Hezonja, who could see some quality minutes.

Enjoy the game, and make sure you talk about it with the rest of the crazies right here.
