Team USA restored order in the second quarter, leading 29-20, as Greece's distance shooting let its coach down while the ball could hardly enter the paint.

SHENZHEN, China - When playing in an worldwide tournament, much of the challenge for Team USA is dealing with all the foreign aspects. But frankly, the US needs him to be a star on occasion, every bit as much as they need those turns from Kemba Walker or Donovan Mitchell.

As for Team USA, this was their first game without Jason Tatum who is one of their best players. Strangely enough the United States utilized the defensive skills in an attempt to stop Giannis for most of Smart's minutes on the floor. They conclude their event with a game against the strong Turkey side (losers by a single point to USA) on Monday.

His brother's foul from behind on Barnes came with 1:43 left in a 13-point game - Barnes jumped a pass for a steal near midcourt, had a clear path for a dunk and Thanasis Antetokounmpo sent him tumbling to the court with a hard hit that was ruled a common foul. The rest of the American players have had to hear for weeks that they don't have the star power of other teams like his.

Antetokounmpo is the first reigning NBA MVP to play in the World Cup or the world championships.

"The [no apology] escalated it", Marcus Smart said according to the report.

"We go as far as Giannis goes", Calathes said. Yes, global basketball is a different game in many respects, but any success in China and beyond was always going to be dependent on him getting the space to blow through defenses. While the altercations were certainly ignited by the foul play done on Barnes, perhaps Brown's personal gripe with Antetokounmpo was a bit more personal. Miserable weather conditions in China forced Popovich to play 10 players in this game, but that has been his style all tournament. "Well, Giannis said something to me, really", [Jaylen] Brown said. They themselves shot only 36 percent from the field and made only seven-of-30 three-point attempts. And when Antetokounmpo played on the perimeter, the defense shaded toward him with three players shadowing him. We just let them know it's a learning moment for him (Thanasis) at that time.

The Americans picked which Greek players to give space, their scouting identifying some weak spots on Greece's roster. Otherwise, they're halfway home to a third straight World Cup title.
