Quarterfinals For FIBA World Cup Set To Begin On Tuesday

'We ... see what's going on': 26 thoughts on Team USA's win over Brazil and looking ahead to France

Team USA has gotten off to a ideal yet somewhat unimpressive 5-0 start in this 2019 FIBA World Cup, mustering the top seed in competition and now awaiting the first heavy hitter it will face in this tournament - France.

Walker has been a Steady Eddie, scoring 13, 14, 15, 15 and 16 points through five games, coupling it with 6.0 assists per game while being remarkably efficient with the ball with only 1.2 turnovers per game. Serbia is +200 (2-1) after its loss to Spain; the Spaniards are +400; Australia (which defeated France 100-98 Monday) is +600; France is +1500; Argentina is +3000; the Czech Republic is +10000; and Poland is +25000.

"This is a lot different game than NBA basketball", 7-footer Myles Turner said.

"For most of the game, we played them tough", Brazil forward Anderson Varejao said.

Besides a 53-point scorching of 48th-ranked Japan in the third game of group play, the Americans have done little to impress through this initial stage, failing to pass both the eye test and the analytics portion in this week and a half of play.

"France has got a lot of talent top to bottom and they probably play the closest in similarity to us as any team that's in the tournament", U.S. guard Joe Harris said.

For France, it was Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier that led the way with a game-high 31 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists.

Monday's victory secured US top spot in Group K, though they only had a narrow half-time lead - 43-39 - behind 10 points apiece from Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker and Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner.

Earlier in the day, despite losing a thriller against Greece, the Czech Republic had put one foot in the quarters.

As a team, the United States assisted on 21 of its 36 made field goals and shot 52.2% from the field for the game.

Shooting guard Vitor Benite led the way for Brazil, who played well for most of the game and were no doubt buoyed by their experience as a group and players like Anderson Varejao and Leandro Barbosa's experience in the National Basketball Association, with 21 points. Czech Republic (3-2) 3. While the team has had some tough moments - notably the overtime squeaker against Turkey in the group stage - the USA simply had too much firepower for Brazil (3-2), which was eliminated from the World Cup.

If it wins (or if we get the fourth or fifth scenario below), it will officially qualify for next year's Olympics in Tokyo. If they lose, they will fall short of becoming the first team to win three World Cups in a row. After finishing first in Group K, The United States National Team will take on France in the Quarter-Finals with the victor facing either Argentina or Serbia.
