The Team USA is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Team Serbia at 7:00 P.M. on September 12, 2019 live from the Dongfeng Nissan Cultural and Sports Centre, Dongguan, China.
The battle for the 5th place in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Classification round starts tonight and the first game will be between the Americans and the Serbians.
Many have anticipated that the gold medal round will be between Team USA and Team Serbia but in this year’s edition of FIBA World Cup, these two squads failed to advance in the Finals.
This time around, no medal is assured for them but a consolation of fifth-best finish in the tournament.
Yesterday evening, team USA got stunned by team France especially in the final few minutes of the game. If the free-throw trips saved them against team Turkey, last night their charity stripe trips were one of the reasons for their downfall.
For the Serbians, they too got stunned in the Quarterfinals versus team Argentina.
At the start of the competition, team Serbia is one of the favorites to win the gold medal considering several NBA superstars backed out from being part of the USA basketball roster.
