American basketball men still go to Tokyo with a victory in the bag

The American basketball players still travel with a good feeling to the Olympic Games in Tokyo. They defeated Spain in their last exhibition game on Sunday en route to Japan, 83-76.

Damian Lillard scored 19 points against the reigning world champion. Kevin Durant was good for 14 points in Las Vegas. Team USA recently lost in preparation for the Games to Nigeria (87-90) and Australia (83-91). An exhibition game with Australia was canceled after a possible positive corona test from Bradley Beal. Kevin Love dropped out of the Games last week with a calf injury.


Team USA has been Olympic champion at the last three Games. Next Sunday, France will be the first opponent in Tokyo.
