The US team barely made it to the gold medal game this year. In fact, if you watched the game against Australia in the first half it would have been easy to think that the US team was going to be competitive for the bronze medal before getting the 97-78 win.

Durant ended up leading the American team in scoring with 23 points. However, Booker was able to get a total of 20 points in the game to help the US team out as well. The rebounding was handled mainly by Durant who pulled down 9 boards.

France had an even stronger threat of not being able to make the gold medal game. The French team beat out Slovenia to make the game here with a chance to knock off the US team again. The final score in the game for France was 90-89 before the French team locked down the win.

De Colo was able to put in 25 points to lead the French scorers in their win. The second high scorer for France was Fournier who put in 23 points. Gobert, though, was an animal on the boards pulling down a total of 16 rebounds in the game.

France +11.5

The US team has proven to be a slow starting team when it comes to scoring in the tournament this year. That could cost the US team as the French team is another team that has some great talent some of the players for the French National team actually are NBA standouts or former standouts, which will give the US team a challenge here. Look for the US men, though, to be  able to battle back and bring home the win in the game here. Final Score Predictions USA wins the Golden 88-80.
