Yes, it was on ESPN2 and Thibs was the commentator. In one case announcer even asked "why doesn't Donovan Mitchell have the ball" or such, to which Thibs replied "They're running different sets (in Q4), trying to put Gobert on P&R"

This roster would be a 7th seed in the west at best.
I'm not sure they make the playoffs...what's with all shlubs on this team?...I get the superstars sitting out but there are a lot of NBA players between LeBron and Plumlee/Lopez...and the hero ball, yikes...glad to see the Jazz players beasting though and can't wait for the season to start...

I just don’t get it.


Also, Thibs is almost as bad as players only. He’s more insightful, but no emotion.

Rudy was just interviewed on ESPN, said it was a win he’s been dreaming about for a long time.

Kinda sad that he beat such a crappy US team.

I wouldn't say they are crappy. They won every game before this one. They are still one of the best teams in this tournament. The rest of the world has gotten better.

Ya it's crappy compared to our Olympic team but in comparison with the rest of the fiba teams this team USA is actually still very good.
Good win for Rudy and France

Thibs on ESPN now.. comparing donovan Mitchell's play with Derrick Rose back in Istanbul 2010. He reminds D-Rose continued the momentum and won the MVP in the NBA. WOW
