FIBA World Cup: Team USA Maintains Perfect Record with Win Over Japan

USA 98-45 Japan

USA - Jaylen Brown- 20p, Kemba Walker- 15p, Harrison- 14p

JAP - Yudai Baba- 18p

Team USA thrashed Japan in its final pool-play game of the FIBA World Cupand set up one of the most anticipated matchups of the tournament, against Greece.

Playing an overmatched Japan team that had already been eliminated, Team USA got up 11-0 out of the gate and cruised to a 98-45 win. It was a much cleaner performance than the oil-leaking showing Tuesday, when Team USA barely survived in an overtime victory over Turkey.

The USA team next move to Shenzhen for the first game of the second round, which is against Greece and reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo.
