    This team will need to pick up the intensity. This team is limited on O so the only way they can win is to pressure and get easy buckets on D. Gobert is a tough cover for this team- and he his hitting every free throw.

    I am not as worried about offense. I think we need to keep them at 80 or fewer points to win this game.

    Gobert is owning our bigs in a big way. We've given up on the bigs being at all effective. Jalen Brown just came in for Turner and Harrison Barnes is now the tallest player on the floor for Team USA.

    4-point play for France and they take a 10 point lead 1 min into the 3rd quarter.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    France is better today. Will need a big effort from the USA to pull this out.

    6-6 NBA shooting guard Joe Harris is currently matched up against 7-1 All-NBA C Rudy Gobert. This is not because of a switch, this is our base defense. France missed a shot but Gobert easily got the rebound and put it back for a bucket.

    USA currently has 2 offensive rebounds in the entire game. France has 7.

    We arenít getting it done on either end. 5 possessions for France resulting in 8 points. On offense we have had 2 turnovers.

    Feels like Mitchell is taking over, getting to the rim at will. He currently leads the team in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. So... ummm... not bad.

    Marcus Smart currently guarding Gobert and seems to be frustrating the French giant with his effort. USA has cut it to 2 with 3 minutes in the 3rd.

    Letís go Spida!!! Brownís defense on Gobert has made a difference these last few possessions. We need to keep them off the line. I think Walker is done for the night. This small line-up of Brown, Mitchell et al is the key.

    Steal and a slam by Mitchell... game tied at 60.

    At the other end, Gobert gets 3 taps and one finally goes in, France back up by 2.

    Donovan Mitchell with 14 points in the 3rd quarter, getting to the rim at will. He has 29 points as the USA takes a 3 point lead to the 4th quarter.

    Great comeback in that 3rd Q. After poor D on the first bunch of possessions we shut them down and held them to 18 that quarter, but only 10 over the last 6 minutes off the half. Mitchell went off! We need to hold them to under 20 this q.

    We missed 2 lay-ups that quarter!!!
