Team USA lost its two first exhibition games against Nigeria then Australia to start international play to shock fans. The U.S. usually is a favorite to win gold but finished exhibition play 2–2 and now start the Olympics with a loss.

Jrue Holiday just arrived to Tokyo after playing a crucial role in the Bucks’ championship win over the Suns and did his best to give Team USA the same spark. He led the team in scoring and minutes at 18 points in just under 28 minutes of action. But it wasn’t enough.
