USA vs Czech Republic Preview

Team USA rebounded from a shocking opening loss to France with a 120-66 drubbing of Iran. Damian Lillard led the way with 21 points, with five other US players in double figures.

“I think we came out with a lot more urgency,” Lillard said. “Our energy was higher, we played at a faster pace. We were more aggressive, and we played like ourselves. We didn’t come out here and think that it was just gonna happen, we made it happen, and that’s the way that we got to play if we want to be successful in these Olympics.”

The US has the most talent in the Olympic tournament by far. However, it’s not easy for a bunch of All-Stars to immediately mesh. Every game that chemistry is getting better.

“I think our communication as a group, you know, just being in a hotel together, being in the dining areas together, at practice shooting around just talking, I feel like after that loss we came together. It was a lot of communication between then and now where it was like alright it’s time start looking like Team USA,” Lillard said.

The Americans are in must-win mode the rest of the way if they hope to wrangle the gold. That includes the matchup against the Czech Republic, which has split its first two games, beating Iran and falling to France. US coach Gregg Popovich is confident his team will be better the rest of the way.

“These guys really appreciate playing with each other, they don’t get that chance very often. And now that they’re complete, and the whole group is here, they’re having fun doing what you saw,” Popvich said. “And each time we get out in the court they do it more and more and better and better as they get confidence in the group and how we want to play. So it’s a matter of being aggressive at both ends of the floor, but not getting in mud, you know, using their skills, being free to play the game but play it the right way and I think we did that.”

The US has some stiff competition to medal this year, with France, Slovenia, Australia and Spain serving as the challengers. Team USA has won six of the last seven tournaments.

Team USA is a 23.5-point favorite for the game, with the total set at 183.5 points.
