Coach Gregg Popovich deflected talk about his missing megastars after Team USA's glorious run in major competition came to a juddering halt on Wednesday at the hands of France.
France had been 0-9 against the U.S.in major worldwide play before Wednesday's win.
None of the U.S. players who played that afternoon in Rio are on this year's World Cup team. The thrilling game featured 12 lead changes.
Going small did not correspond to an increased effectiveness in defending ball screens; Ntilikina still managed a huge 3-pointer to tie the game at 76-all with 4:30 left, and Fournier beat Mitchell for the bucket that put France ahead for good at 78-76. He was averaging 14.6 points per game, the best scoring average on the team. Marcus Smart made three free throws after getting fouled by Gobert to put the US back on top, and the Americans took a 66-63 lead into the fourth. With a 13 to 9 offensive rebound advantage and a 44 to 28 total rebound advantage, Gobert and France controlled the glass from start to finish. And it did not make the US more dynamic on offense, save for a burst of brilliance from Mitchell in the third quarter that allowed the Americans to grab the lead for a short period.
That's not to say that they were not talented, of course.
Australia's win over the Czech Republic in the other quarterfinal on Wednesday gave France something else to celebrate - an Olympic berth.
