Undefeated USA And Lithuania Face Off In Manila To Decide 1St Place

Predictions came through in Group J, as both Team USA and Lithuania won against Montenegro and Greece respectively. Both teams have punched their tickets to the quarter finals, and the winner will keep first place and undefeated status at the FIBA World Cup. Lithuania are coming off a resounding win against Greece by 25 points.

Team USA struggled for parts of their game against Montenegro, with Vucevic outputting a strong 18+15 double-double. However, in crunch time and with the game as close as two possessions, Team USA rebounded with a step-back three from Austin Reeves, and managed to create a cushion Montenegro wasn’t able to recover during the fourth quarter.

Team USA vs Lithuania– preview and key factors

Team USA will face their toughest test as undefeated Lithuania try to add yet another crazy upset to the list in this crazy Second Round.

The deciding factors in this contest will be:

  • Jaren Jackson Junior will have a busy night against Jonas Valanciunas
  • Kerr needs Ant-Man and Reeves to keep performing
  • Team USA can’t afford to relax vs Lithuania
  • Winner will match up against Second-Placed in group I

Team USA vs Lithuania Prediction

Despite Lithuania’s confidence and quality, with a great playmaker-center duo in Jokubaitis-Valanciunas, Team USA is still well-matched to answer any questions Lithuania will ask. Unless they relax and let the Lithuanian energy overwhelm them, Team USA should be able to keep the top spot in Group J.
