Team USA men’s basketball is the top seed in the upcoming Olympics quarterfinals, but for the first time in years, they look vulnerable. They won each of the final two games of the preliminary phase by just three points, while a 10-point affair against Australia was close until some clutch shot making late in the game from Carmelo Anthony and Kyrie Irving.
It’s perhaps unfair to label Team USA as vulnerable when it produced group play’s only unblemished record and an unmatched plus-117 point differential.
But it’s also unfair to call this team a superpower when its last three victories were decided by a total of 16 points. The Americans have been plagued by an oft-stagnant offense, a disconnected defense and a better-than-advertised Olympic field.
“Obviously, everybody wants us to win by a lot of points, but it’s not how it’s going to go this time,” Kevin Durant said, per USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt.
As the Americans move into the quarterfinals at the Rio Games, their next opponent is the last to defeat them in the elimination stage—Argentina, which captured gold in 2004 and still features four Golden Generation players from that squad, including NBA veterans Manu Ginobili and Luis Scola.
