RIO DE JANEIRO (Rio 2016 Olympic Games) – The United States prevailed in their latest clash with Serbia but this time, it was nail-biter.
Beaten like a drum, final score result 129-92, in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup Final by the USA, the Serbians this time charged back from an early 27-9 deficit and had an attempt from the three-point line to tie it at the buzzer but Bogdan Bogdanovic only drew iron, hitting the front of the rim, and the two-time defending Olympic champions held on for a 94-91 win.
The Americans will still be favourites to reach the top of the podium, but it’s not going to be a romp as it was two years ago in Madrid.
