All of the matchups are now set, and Team USA remains the favorite to win at even money.

"I thought Brazil really gave us a tough fight in that first half".

We are also choosing USA's Jaylen Brown for this segment after he latched onto 9 rebounds in the previous encounter, being the first player to win possession back for his side.

Besides Jaylen Brown against Japan, no U.S. player has managed to score 20 points in a game through this World Cup run - something that will quickly need to change against a French team that is fourth in scoring in this tournament (89.4 points per game) and that has several players who can catch fire.

The USA topped Group K as they chase a third World Cup title in a row in China.

Also with the win, the US has officially qualified for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

In Monday's other key game, Australia beat France (4-1) 100-98.

The United States' win over Greece on Saturday came with execution of the defensive game plan, but also with a heavy dose of small-ball.

In a potential quarterfinals matchup against France, it would be very interesting to see the USA play small against Rudy Gobert, who has the ability to just remain in the paint defensively under FIBA rules.

If you're heading to China for the World Cup, don't forget that China blocks all the most popular websites and social media, so no Facebook for you.

"I think guys are excited for it", Harrison Barnes said of the knockout round.

"We're thrilled that we qualified for the Olympics", U.S. coach Gregg Popovich said. Against Brazil on Monday (8:30 a.m. ET), the US shouldn't be too afraid of Anderson Varejao or Cristiano Felicio inside, though Felicio has grabbed 5.8 offensive rebounds per 30 minutes at the World Cup. And Brazil topped the U.S.in four consecutive meetings at worlds from 1959 through 1970.

Greece earned the 84-77 victory over the Czech Republic, yet they were eliminated as they had to win by 12 or more points.

The U.S. will face France in the quarterfinals on Wednesday (6 a.m., ESPN+).

In its first World Cup since 1967, the Poles have already got farther than expected but it would be a major surprise if they were to upset Spain.

Like Argentina, Spain is looking to reach a first World Cup semifinals in 13 years and it has emerged as one of the dark horses of the tournament after topping a group containing Italy and Serbia. Czech Republic (4-1) 3.

Rigoberto Mendoza scored 14 points to lead the Dominican Republic (2-3). U.S. (4-1) 3. Greece (3-2) 4. Greece (3-2) 3. Czech Republic (3-2) 4.
