Celtics’ Jaylen Brown Impresses In Team USA’s Blowout Win Vs. Japan

Celtics’ Jaylen Brown Impresses In Team USA’s Blowout Win Vs. Japan”

Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura, who is representing Japan in the FIBA World Cup, will sit out the final two games of the global tourney. Team Japan also shot an absolutely abysmal 18% from three point range.

"You gotta get the best players available ready in the next four years", Norwood said.

Hachimura finished with just four points on 2-of-8 shooting.

After that, this was little more than a comedy show. "That's our goal. We haven't been together very long, and I think our players are enjoying playing together and understanding the consistency that is necessary to do what we have to do as a team to be successful". Team USA built a big early lead but Turkey responded, keeping things close for the remainder of a game that would come down to a wild ending.

Yanick Moreira and Reggie Moore each added 12 points as Angola enters the classification phase as the third seed in Group D. Brown used his athleticism in transition to score, and he was active defending on the perimeter, finishing the game with two steals. He helps provide pressure on the perimeter, and in transition, he's hard to guard because of how athletic he is. Kemba Walker scored 15 points and handed out six assists, Donovan Mitchell scored 10 on his 23rd birthday and the US beat Greece 69-53 to move on the cusp of qualifying for the quarterfinals. Thus, the USA team entered the tournament led by a mixture of younger players looking to prove their worth at an global level and veterans who hadn't had the chance to represent their country in worldwide play before.

"We understand he's a great player and he's the MVP, but it's not just him on that team", said Donovan Mitchell, who had 10 points Thursday.

Celtics players Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart both were sidelined for Thursday's matchup due to injuries, but Team USA responded by sharing the ball. His lone highlight came via a facial off a dunk on USA center Myles Turner (Indiana Pacers).

At Shanghai, the Americans overpowered Japan to finish 3-0 in Group E, just two days after edging Turkey by one-point in overtime.

Omar Abada made 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, and two steals for Tunisia, which moved up to 2-2, solidifying its bid of at least making the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament next year or even make the Olympics outright as the best African nation in the FIBA worlds.
