Holiday is a game changer out there defensively. Pretty bummed we didn't end up getting him for the Kemba trade. Think he'd be a solid third to the Jays.

Those two 3s for France give them a bit of belief. Looked defeated before that.

yeah cutting it to 8 at the end was big.  It still feels like USA has another gear to go to defensively.  Going to be tough for France.

The dependence on Durant is amazing. I cannot remember a Team USA looking this reliant on one player.

These refs seem just as questionable as NBA refs lol That's a questionable call on Middleton. Clearly didn't move that pivot foot, though he may have traveled before that.
