I mean, USA really really really making this hard for themselves. Missed FTs, silly turnovers, this dumb lineup.

Fitting that KD closes it out at the line because without him they donít win this game. What a huge performance in the clutch 29 points out of 87

Well played to France. If Rudy had been a bit better at the line, they could well have done the US.

Glad that they won and that Tatum was solid. Should have never been this close, but a gold medal is a gold medal!

Tatum looks every bit as tall as KD out there. Hair may have something to do with it, but he can't be but an inch, inch and a half or so shorter than him.

Shout-out to Yabusele topping the scorers for the French. Also Gobert missing all those free throws didn't help.

Yes they played very well, not as well as they did in Game 1 but theyíre definitely the 2nd best national team in the world

Jayson Tatum finishes with 19 points and 7 rebounds and is also a team-high +12 as USA wins gold

Tatum is being anointed as the heir apparent he gets the first interview after KD

Well played to France. If Rudy had been a bit better at the line, they could well have done the US.

Rudy got subbed out when he;

- Traveled (turnover)
- Threw a rubbish pass (turnover)
- Fouled Durant at half court (stupid foul)

That stretch goes any different, and they are not just in the game, they are up by x points.

Wow I really think we missed our chances. Turnovers, bad PG performance, some bad coaching with sub playing too much and bad FT... Without Durant you would have been distanced early I guess...

In 3 years home the revenge ? But with no Durant and with Maledon or Hayes to take Heurtel minutes and Wembanyamato rule with Rudy on the air :)

Congratulation US but some regrets on this match for us
