It’s game time! Team USA’s Men’s Basketball will hit the courts in another round of preliminaries on Aug. 14. Will they be able to keep their undefeated streak going? Tune into the live stream to see here!
Team USA is tearing up the courts! In the first four games, the dream demolished the competition, solidifying them as the team to beat. Cavaliers all-star, Kyrie Irving, 23, Carmelo Anthony, 32, and Kevin Durant, 27, set the pace for the team in the first game on Aug. 6, shutting out China in a 119-62 game. Now that’s how you play ball!
And on the second day of the prelims on Aug. 8, Klay Thompson, 27, and Drayond Green, 27, helped nab another win for the nation in a 113-69 game over Venezuela. GO Team! And just two days later, the guys were back at it again! On Aug. 10, the team played against Australia, who definitely gave them some stiff competition. But even so, the team managed to score a 10-point lead at the final buzzer. And agin, they dominated in their fourth game against Serbia on August 12. Is there any game this team can’t win?
The men’s basketball team is essentially unstoppable at this point, but somehow they still had time to visit some of the other events and cheer on the rest of Team USA. Cameras even spotted KD, Draymond, DeMarcus Cousins, and Klay sitting poolside to watch Michael Phelps, 31, win his 20th and 21st gold medals in the 200-meter butterfly and the 4x200m relay, along with Ryan Lochte, 32. The basketball players even took pictures with their favorite swimmers after they won! And Kevin also took the time to snap a pic with 3-time gold medalist, Katie Ledecky! That is SO cool!
Unfortunately, we won’t be making a trip to Rio, but we will be catching all of the action from the comforts of our home, and you can too. Team USA will take on France at 1:15p.m. EStT
