Watching Russia vs. China currently at the FIBA World Basketball championships on CCTV-5. The announcers, as they have all tournament, are in full cheerleading mode. I don't blame them, necessarily, as I want Team China to win as well, but here are some of the things they've said already that would make non-China fans balk:

Russian throws soft pass: "Intercept the ball!"

Commentator 1: "That's a foul.
Commentator 2: "No worries, just stop them (on defense)."

As ball is in air from Russia: "Get the rebound!" The shot goes in.

I've lost count how many times they've said aiya as Russia makes a good play or China misses a shot.

Considering how much China's now falling behind by, the commentating just makes the situation tenser.
