It was just another night of work for the Americans, as Luka Doncic was held out of action as a precautionary measure after there was some concern that he might have been injured.
Team USA looked like they had the right players and the necessary chemistry to win the FIBA World Cup gold from the opening of the exhibition game against Slovenia to the very end of the game. Slovenia was the team they were playing.
The Slovenians had a brief run in the first quarter that trimmed the USA lead and brought the score to 27-20 at the end of the opening period. Despite this, the Americans showed their strength to close the first half with a 16-point lead, and they went on to win the game on Sunday in Malaga, Spain, by a final score of 92-62, which was 30 points more than the Slovenians scored.
Anthony Edwards, a prominent player for the Minnesota Timberwolves, is leading the way for the United States of America. Edwards led the team in scoring with 15 points and pulled down four rebounds.
According to the person @oscarbrer on X (which was once known as Twitter), whenever he touches the ball, he is cooking regardless.
Deee Black, a user on the internet, agrees; the fan had the impression that Edwards was doing whatever he wanted regardless of the consequences.
“Anthony Edwards playing AND1 basketball,” according to the caption.
The X user Shad was so sure that he gave Edwards a new moniker to signify their relationship. The idea could be more novel, but it does have the air of being fraught with a great deal of responsibility.
The fan signed their work “CAPTAIN AMERICA.”
Meanwhile, fans of the New York Knicks are ecstatic to watch their point guard continuing to play as a smooth floor general for the national team.
Brunson was deemed to be the greatest player on a squad that also features players of the caliber of Edwards, Brandon Ingram, and Jaren Jackson Jr. @KnicksJetsM even chose to be controversial with his perspective by proclaiming Brunson to be the best player on the team.
“He’s easily the best player on the team. Casuals are free to express their frustrations about it.
The fans of Team USA won’t have much to complain about by the time of the FIBA World Cup if they continue to play as well as they did in this game.
On Monday according to NBA Online Betting PH, the United States will continue their preparations for their match against Spain by playing a game against Spain.
