Phantom foul call against Irving - no contact with the Australian player.

Australia with a moving pick on almost every play; no call.

DeAndre called for unsportsmanlike conduct for holding; Australian player holds, no such call against them.

US offense is awful. No easy baskets. Nothing going to the rim. Everything is jumpers and offensive rebounds. When the opposing team doesn't turn the ball over, the US has no answers.

Agreed; no offensive rhythm. It's all chucking.

He's 0/5 from 2pt range. He made a 3 earlier with a hand in his face.

But US has been terrible in the half-court, yes.

This team DESPERATELY misses the presence of Lebron and Chris Paul to handle the ball and play make
