It may not be quite the Dream Team of old, but the USA is going the right way about winning a third straight Basketball World Cup. They face France in the quarter-finals in China today and you can watch the basketball live as it happens from anywhere with our USA vs France live stream guide.
Despite the absence of superstars like Steph Curry, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, the USA still went into this year's tournament as clear favorites. Their roster is still jam-packed full of NBA regulars such as Pacers center Myles Turner, young Denver Nugget Donovan Mitchell and three-time All-Star point guard Kemba Walker. After an early scare from Turkey, they've beaten Japan, Greece and Brazil heavily. Can they really be stopped?
It's France that stand in their way, coming off the back of defeat to Australia. They picked up the bronze medal five years ago and boast their own selection of NBA stars. Orlando Magic shooting guard Evan Fournier currently sits towards the top of the points per game stats for the tourney, while 7'1'' Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has been a rebound machine. They'll need both strong starters and bench to overcome their intimidating opponents today.
