  • Patty Mills put on a dominant performance for the Boomers

Boomers fans can dare to dream about a basketball World Cup medal after Australia scored a massive upset win over the United States in Melbourne.

Patty Mills with 30 points led the charge against the team of Gregg Popovich, his coach at the San Antonio Spurs.

Team USA superstar Donovan Mitchell has brushed off his side's shock 98-94 loss to Australia on Saturday afternoon (AEST), saying it was a game which ultimately means nothing.

Australia had never beaten the Americans, and the USA national team had been 30-0 all-time in Australia.

Although numerous United States' top National Basketball Association stars skipped the series and the World Cup, Australia's win thrilled the 52,079 fans - a record crowd for the sport at the stadium - and gave the Boomers hope of claiming a medal in China.

Though Australia lost Game One 102-86 at the same venue on Thursday, Mills had caused all sorts of headaches for USA coach Gregg Popovic, also his boss at the San Antonio Spurs.

"Obviously, this was a great step for us", Ingles said.

He banked in a long 3 for a four-point lead, added a layup to put his country up six with 1:50 left and clinched it with the last free throw.

On the other side, Kemba Walker with 22 points and Harrison Barnes with 20 were the only two players in double-digits and the U.S. should understand after this result that the FIBA World Cup would not be a walk in the park.

"At the end of the day, this game doesn't count", Mitchell said.

"It was awesome, we had no idea what it was going to be like and everyone came out in full force tonight", said Mills. Andrew Bogut and Joe Ingles grabbed their kids and brought them on the floor for a look. We've just got talk a bit more and communicate. Mills scored eight points in 45 seconds, including a pair of 3-pointers, to get Australia within one with 2:40 left in the third.

"That's a great team and they've been together a long time", Barnes said.

Australia: Attendance was 52,079, the biggest crowd to watch a basketball game in Australia - breaking the record of 51,218 set Thursday. Plans call for the Americans to stay in Sydney through Wednesday before making the trip to Shanghai, where they'll open World Cup play on September 1 against the Czech Republic. The United States will face Canada in their next exhibition contest in Sydney, Australia on Monday, August 26th at 5:30am ET on NBA TV and Twitch.
