Looking to secure their third consecutive Olympic gold medal in the men’s basketball competition, Team USA takes on rising powerhouse Serbia on Sunday afternoon.
Clearly the two best teams during these Rio Olympics, USA and Serbia met during group play, with the Americans squeezing out a 94-91 victory. Kyrie Irving had a team-high 15 points and five assists for the Red, White and Blue, while Nikola Jokic took advantage of the Americans’ shaky pick-and-roll defense to the tune of 25 points and six rebounds, as Serbia gave the No. 1 team in the world just about all it could handle.
Nevertheless, oddsmakers like USA’s talent to win out with a gold medal on the line, as Mike Krzyzewski’s squad has been pegged as a huge double-digit favorite.
