RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazilians know the 7-1 loss to Germany at the World Cup will never be forgotten. That doesnt mean that defeating the rivals in the Olympic final wouldnt have a special sweetness.Two years after the humiliating home defeat, Brazil faces Germanys under-23 team on Saturday with a chance to win the soccer gold medal for the first time.Victory would give Brazil the only trophy it hasnt won in world football, but not revenge for 2014.That was the World Cup, this is the Olympic team, Brazil coach Rogerio Micale said. Neymar never played in that match, so there is nothing that could generate any type of feeling that we have to take revenge. It is a different time with different players and ages.Brazilian fans, however, have been looking forward to the rematch against the Germans, even if its in a tournament played mostly with youth squads and with less importance as the World Cup. As Brazil routed Honduras in the semifinals, the crowd at the Maracana chanted that Germanys turn is coming up.The supporters are playing their role and we will need the supporters as this is a very strong German team, Micale said. The supporters will want what they want, but there is no link between that match and this one.Germany coach Horst Hrubesch also distanced his team from what happened at the World Cup.What counts is this game, the Olympic final, he said. It is a different team and we are here to live our dream right to the end.Neymar was a member of Brazils squad in 2014 but didnt play against Germany after breaking a bone in his back in the quarterfinals against Colombia.The only Germany player who was in the World Cup is Matthias Ginter, but he was on the bench and never played in the infamous game at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte.We know that its going to be a different environment to be playing against Germany again, Brazil goalkeeper Weverton said. But nobody here played in that final. What happened in the past is in the past, nothing is going to change that, even if we win by seven goals. We have a chance to create our own history, for our generation to do something different and earn this gold for Brazil.Playing at home and with Neymar, Brazil is taking the Olympic tournament more seriously than ever. It arrived at the Rio de Janeiro Games as the main title-favorite and with the obligation of winning the elusive gold. Neymar skipped the Copa America just to try to help Brazil win at the Olympics.Brazil finished with the silver medal three times and the bronze twice. Four years ago, it lost to Mexico in the final in London.This is the third straight Olympics in which Brazil has brought some of its best players looking for gold. Neymar also played in 2012, and in 2008 in Beijing it failed with a team led by Ronaldinho. Brazil also finished second in 1984 in Los Angeles and in 1988 in Seoul, the second time with a team that included Romario and Bebeto. Brazil won the bronze in 1996 in Atlanta with striker Ronaldo.Victory in Rio would help restore some of Brazils soccer pride after the World Cup defeat and this years elimination in the group stage of the Copa America. Brazils last title was at the 2013 Confederations Cup, when the final was also at the Maracana.Germany is playing in the Olympics for the first time since 1998, when Jurgen Klinsmann was on the team. It won the bronze at the time, when it competed as West Germany. Ernie Banks Jersey .

Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night. "We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Only Candace Parker (40 in 2008) and Odyssey Sims (39 in 2014) have tallied more as a rookie.The point total was also the second most in Storm history behind Lauren Jacksons 47-point performance in 2007.Stewart has topped 20 points in each of the last four games and is averaging 29.3 points during the stretch. She suddenly ranks fifth in the league in scoring (18.9) as well as second in rebounding (9.4).Shes adapting, Storm coach Jenny Boucek said after Tuesdays victory. We have players on this team that are willing and able to create for not only themselves, but for others as well. And thats what we want.Right now Stewie is getting hers, but it could be different on another night. Stewie has shown that shes willing to be a facilitator if thats what the defense is giving her.

I thought we let little things add up such as outside defense. We havent been able to do that this whole season.There are no excuses. We just have to look at film and make the adjustments and get ready for Seattle, who is another tough team.Diggins scored a season-high 29 points on 12-of-17 shooting in the loss and ranks third on the team in scoring at 14.1 points per game. Sims, a guard, averages a team-best 15.7 and forward Karima Christmas is at 14.4.Sims and forward Glory Johnson didnt start against Los Angeles due to unspecified rules violations. ' ' '
