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.
