Japan vs USA 8/5/21 - Olympic Women’s Basketball Picks & Predictions

The US women’s team has made it to the gold medal game here. The women in their last game ended up knocking off Serbia by a score of 79-59. However, the key thing to consider is the main reason the score was so spread is the women dominated in the first quarter, but played almost at the same level as Serbia.

Griner ended up leading the American women in the scoring department with 15 points. Gray came off the bench top play 24 minutes and put in 14 points. The rebounding leader was also Griner who pulled down 12 boards.

Japan made the gold medal game here after cruising in their game against France. The Japanese ladies ended up winning the game by a score of 87-71 and looked very impressive in their win. 

Akaho ended up leading the Japanese women with a total of 17 points. Myazawa put in a total of 14 points to be the second high scorer for Japan. Both of those ladies tied for the rebounding lead for Japan with a total of 7 boards each.

The US women are a strong startling team so far in the Olympics, but also a team that has allowed the opponents to hang with them in the rest of the game. That could make it difficult in this game and create a game that is a lot closer than expected. Look for the US women to start strong and play just well enough to keep Japan at bay in the game here. Final Score Prediction, USA wins 79-70.
