Las Vegas – Sunday, 7/11/2021 at 9:00 am
For only the third time in 57 friendlies since 1992 – when basketball pros began playing on the US team – the US has lost a friendly. There is 87:90 against Nigeria in preparation for the Olympic Games.
The United States won their last two matches with Nigeria with a total of 125 points.
But on Saturday night in Las Vegas, the NBA All-Star Team deservedly lost to a Nigerian selection in which five professionals from the best basketball league in the world play, but not as famous and successful as the All-Star gathering. About Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard or Bradley Beal.
Durant has only 15 points and hits only two of his first 11 attempts. In Nigeria, Miami Heat’s Gabi Vincent is the best pitcher with 21 points.
At the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the United States will meet France, Iran and the Czech Republic in Group A.
