Chinese fans heckle Bogut at World Cup

So-called

After a tight first quarter when Antetokounmpo scored seven points, Team USA - whose roster is one of the youngest in the competition at average age 26 - turned the screws.

SHENZHEN, China - When playing in an worldwide tournament, much of the challenge for Team USA is dealing with all the foreign aspects.

That should not overshadow what was one of the better wins for Team USA in this tournament, one where the USA can build some momentum. But frankly, the US needs him to be a star on occasion, every bit as much as they need those turns from Kemba Walker or Donovan Mitchell.

Jeff Van Gundy, who has done a lot of praising of Antetokounmpo as lead analyst for ABC and ESPN, has changed roles and is acting as head scout for Team USA now.

Antetokounmpo had 15 points and 13 rebounds and made 7-of-11 shots, but the truth was he was defanged to the point where the Greeks waved the white flag and pulled their star in the fourth quarter to save energy. Strangely enough the United States utilized the defensive skills in an attempt to stop Giannis for most of Smart's minutes on the floor.

The game between Greece and Team USA ended in an unexpected and tense way.

The incident in question came following a hard foul on Harrison Barnes from Thanasis Antetokounmpo late in the game.

Nick Nurse's side sank 24 three-pointers in their 126-71 triumph over Jordan, the most in a single FIBA World Cup game.

Barnes drew the initial assignment, followed by the MVP's Milwaukee teammate Khris Middleton, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Myles Turner.

"He came every day to fight on the court, of course he did not get the respect he wants and I mean about the two fouls he received today, the third and the fifth (both offensive fouls)", said Greece coach Thanasis Skourtopoulos. "So we move on", said Brown. "Well, Giannis said something to me, really". It gives us an idea of what we are likely to see when games start to get tight in the knockout rounds, Popovich is going to lean on his athletic backcourt and wings and try to get by with less at the five. They are far from safe as the best teams in the tournament are still looming, but for the first time, this group looks to be coming together as a team.

Nando De Colo sunk a fadeaway jump shot with 15 seconds of the match remaining to put France three points clear of Lithuania, who saw Jonas Maciulis fail to make a buzzer-beating shot from beyond the arc.

"Everyone knows Giannis obviously, you play against him in the NBA", Harris said.

It's only halfway toward the journey, the U.S.is 4-0 in the World Cup but has four more left.
