""We have very good feelings about this, we have a side with a lot of experience but with a lot of excitement to play what will be the last major tournament together for much of us,"" said Gasol, the most successful Spanish basketball player of all time who is now with the Chicago Bulls.
""We have to keep calm in order to maintain the correct level of tension,"" he said in sports paper, Diario AS.

""We want to get to the final whoever we are against. It would be really important for us to win a gold medal, but we have to take this step by step,"" he advised.
The only worry for Spain was the lack of effectiveness shown by the usually reliable Sergi Llull and Juan Carlos Navarro with three-point throws, but as long as the forwards are hitting the target Spain have plenty of options
""We have to continue taking advantage of our inside play to try and give an advantage to the shooting guards. We have to create advantage to exploit our strengths,"" he concluded.

BEIJING, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Dozens of civilians were killed and injured in a premeditated attack by an armed gang in Xinjiang early Monday. Initial investigation has suggested that it could have been another terrorist attack.
Following are some quick viewpoints:
-- The latest attack in southern Xinjiang, largely populated by ethnic Uygur, aims to destabilize the region and spread fear and hatred, as did similar recent attacks.
-- Police shooting dead of the mobsters was decisive and well justified. It prevented more civilian casualties, from both Han and Uygur ethnic groups.
-- The attack came one day ahead of Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan, the holiest month for Muslims. The festival should have been observed in peace, with spiritual reflection and improvement.
-- The attack is against the spirit of Ramadan, which is about the practice of self-discipline and self-control. During Ramadan, devout Muslims refrain from any behavior that could be perceived as sinful, such as swearing, let along slaughtering innocent people.
-- The rioters were committing blasphemy against Islam, ""the religion of peace.""
-- The attack coincided one of the most important trade fairs in Kashgar, which was widely expected to restore some of the dented investment confidence after previous violence. The latest attack is doomed to hurt the economy.
