USA vs SER Dream11 Team Prediction: Serbia Vs USA Basketball World Cup 2019 Best Dream 11 Team

The United States have been eliminated from the World Cup with their 89-79 loss to France. It ended a streak of 58 straight global competition wins for the USA squad in which National Basketball Association players participated.

Donovan Mitchell led Team USA with 29 points.

Gobert's overall presence in the second half was decisive, leading Vincent Collet's squad with a double-double of 21 points and 16 rebounds.

It was the USA's first global loss since the 2016 FIBA World Cup semifinals against Greece.

A lot of the NBA's top-tier talent passed on participating in the World Cup this summer, but at least some of those stars (James Harden, Steph Curry, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Dame Lillard, Kevin Love, Tobias Harris, Trae Young, and Andre Drummond) will need to be on the roster next summer to give the USA its best chance of securing a fourth straight Olympic gold medal. They already had qualified for next year's Summer Games in Tokyo. Boston Celtics guards Marcus Smart and Kemba Walker scored 11 and 10 points, respectively.

France had been 0-9 against the U.S.in major worldwide play before Wednesday's win.

France's Nicolas Batum celebrates a World Cup victory over the United States. With Gobert guarding the paint, this was a game where the USA needed their scorers to step up and carry them into the semis, yet ultimately only Mitchell was able to assume that responsibility. As he does in the NBA, Gobert has protected the paint, controlled the glass and found efficient ways to score for France. Jayson Tatum (sprained left ankle) missed his fourth consecutive game. He scored a team-high 22 points and had four assists.

Though Team USA lost, players showed growth throughout the tournament.

Australia's win over the Czech Republic in the other quarterfinal on Wednesday gave France something else to celebrate - an Olympic berth.

The U.S. men's national basketball team will return home without medals.
