Team USA And Team Canada FIBA World Cup Bronze Game Could Be Start Of Rivalry

germany-usa

Team USA and Team Canada are finally competing for a basketball medal in a match that has been in the works for years.

The prize for Sunday’s matchup between the two North American heavyweights (4:45 a.m. ET, ESPN+) wasn’t intended to be a bronze. However, despite the fact that both nations were shocked in Friday’s FIBA World Cup semifinals, it is also becoming clear that this could mark the beginning of a rivalry.

The only basketball medal the Canadians have ever received at the Olympics is a silver from the 1936 Berlin Olympics. They have never won a medal at the World Cup. But during the past ten years, the NBA has seen a continuous inflow of Canadian talent, headlined by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a first-team All-NBA selection.

But during the past ten years, the NBA has seen a continuous inflow of Canadian talent, headlined by Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, a first-team All-NBA selection.

Canada qualified for the Paris Olympics based on its performance in Manila. The past four Olympic gold medal winners, the United States, could compete against Canada in France the following summer for the first time since 2000.

A number of times in the future, as the Canadian basketball pipeline develops.

Given the high hopes placed on these two teams to be the main event, it is only natural that the bronze game could disappoint. Although Team USA has triumphed in its last two bronze-medal contests (in the Olympics in 2004 and the World Cup in 2006), this year’s squad faces a fresh challenge.

Despite the fact that Canada has the most NBA talent in the tournament (seven active players and Zach Edey from Purdue, the NCAA player of the year), it may be a more straightforward matchup for the Americans.

The opposition is known, and Canada, like the United States, is not very large. Team USA’s favored style of play is relieved to face a more NBA-type group in Canada after playing four straight big European teams in a row.

Canada ranks 11th in offensive rebounding and 19th overall. Against Montenegro, Lithuania, and Germany, Team USA struggled on the offensive glass, surrendering a combined 63 second-chance points at the World Cup.

The Americans are familiar with the personality of their NBA competitors in addition to the matchup differences.

Canada, like Team USA, has suffered two World Cup defeats. However, it has a stronger record thus far, having defeated Slovenia under Luka Doncic, Spain, the reigning world champion, and Olympic silver medalist France before falling to Serbia in a foul-riddled effort.
