Here are the game highlights of the exhibition game between Team USA and Team Spain which was held in Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
Both the American and the Spanish clubs are among the tough teams in the upcoming 2019 FIBA World Cup that will happen in China.
Currently, team USA ranked number one in the FIBA World Ranking while team Spain is at number two.
Yet, for the present roster which was assembled and to be coached by San Antonio Spurs head tactician Greg Popovich, that number one spot on the FIBA list may be deceiving.
In this year’s cast, they have no glittering names like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and other bright stars of the NBA.
Instead, they have several rising stars and even others are role players for their respective teams.
Prior to the start of team USA training camp, several NBA superstars like James Harden, Anthony Davis, and others opted out as they wanted to focus themselves on the upcoming NBA season.
For team Spain on the other hand, most of their players who made an appearance in the NBA still up for the job. However, one name standout who isn’t present in the exhibition match is their main-man Pau Gasol.
It was already reported that the brother of Marc Gasol won’t be available for the upcoming tournament. He underwent surgery last May of this year to repair a stress fracture in his left foot.
