Kemba Walker, Donovan Mitchell put on show in USA World Cup win


Team USA is going to lean heavily on the combination of Kemba Walker and Donovan Mitchell in the FIBA World Cup — those are the team’s best scorers and shot creators, and they are going to have the ball in their hands. A lot.

They did against the Czech Republic, where Walker put a Czech defender on skates.

Meanwhile, Donovan Mitchell was throwing it down.

The USA cruised to an 88-67 win in their opener in China. Next up is Turkey in two days, a team that should provide a stiffer test, but nothing Team USA should not be able to handle comfortably.
