Oz beats Team USA

Post by koimaster » July 12th 2021, 10:41pm

The United States men's basketball team has lost just four exhibition games since 1992, and half of those losses happened in a span of 48 hours. After being upset by Nigeria in their first Olympic exhibition Saturday night, Team USA fell to Australia on Monday, 91-83, in Las Vegas.

The U.S. is now 54-4 in exhibition games since 1992.

Damian Lillard led the way for the U.S. with 22 points and four rebounds. Kevin Durant, who was 6 of 13 from the field but was cold most of the game, chipped in with 17 points while also adding four boards.

With Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Matisse Thybulle, Aron Baynes, Dante Exum and Matthew Dellavedova, the Australians have more NBA talent than the Nigerian squad. Still, this is another huge upset for the Americans.

Mills was huge for Australia, particularly late, scoring 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the U.S. just couldn't get enough stops to back up their own hot shooting from 3 down the stretch.

Saw the headline. I don't know anything about basketball except America is good at it. Did you guys have a bunch of key players missing? Or just taking it easy so as to avoid injury leading up to the olympics?
