The 7-footer fouled out less than two minutes into the third quarter and spent the second half watching and worrying.Theres no real positive you can take from this, Bogut said. For other people, yeah, the top four is great. Were disappointed not being able to make history for our country.Australias Aron Baynes dropped a hook shot in the lane -- the ball rattling around before dropping -- to give the Aussies an 88
