In their first match not only did the United States lose, but the level of the game was almost non-American. Passive games and lack of face-to-face shots are not how their players become the best basketball players. When they lost their first Olympic Game, the Americans decided to do something about it.
“After this failure, we are united,” said point guard Damian Lillard. “At the same time, there are many conversations now going inside the team like, it’s time to look like an American team. ” Lillard scored 21 points. The Americans won again easily in their first Olympic victory, beating Iran 120-66 on Wednesday.
Devin Booker scored 16 points for the Americans, Jason Tatum Scored 14 points for the Americans. The US team not only recovered, but also did it in the style of a dream team when facing outspoken opponents. Their 25 consecutive Olympic victories were interrupted by the French team on Sunday with 83-76 points.
The United States will play against the Czech Republic on Saturday to end the group stage. This victory will ensure that the United States has a place in the quarterfinals of the playoffs. The United States may not care about which team they are with, they just have to look good while performing.
After they shared their performance in Las Vegas before losing to France, they had 2 wins and 3 losses in the exhibition games. Due to lineup changes, the cancellation of the game due to coronavirus security issues, and the absence of Jue Holiday, Chris Middleton, and Booker before the opening day, they rarely seem to perform well because all three of them were in the NBA finals.
