The Team USA is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Team Turkey at 8:30 P.M. on September 3, 2019 live from the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center, Shanghai, China.
Both teams will try to be the number one squad in Group E as the FIBA ranked number 1 USA will go up against the ranked number 17 Turkey this evening in Shanghai.
The Americans showcased their athleticism against the team Czech Republic in their tournament opener last Sunday.
Team USA started slowly in the first quarter as the young guns of coach Greg Popovich still finding their rhythm but in the second quarter, all of that changed as the anticipated speed of the Americans ignited.
Donovan Mitchell led the USA in scoring with his 16 points while Harrison Barnes added 14 markers in their victory.
For the Turks on the other hand, they had no problem dismantling team Japan also on September 1.
They wasted no time and right after the tip-off, they pinned down the Japanese squad where they allowed them to score only 12 points against their 28 markers.
It resulted in a momentum takeover and made team Japan play catch up the rest of the way.
Ersan Ilyasova led the Turkish team with his 19 points along with his 10 rebounds while Melih Mahmutoglu added 17 points.
