Team USA basketball schedule: How to watch USA vs. New Zealand, live stream, TV channel, FIBA World Cup dates

Must read

Team USA basketball is less than a week away from the official start of the FIBA World Cup and wrapped up its exhibition games on a high note. The Americans fell behind against Germany early on Saturday, but Anthony Edwards helped power them to an impressive comeback win with some dynamic scoring down the stretch. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard poured in a game-high 34 points on 11-of-21 shooting. Team USA’s offense erupted for an 18-0 run in the fourth quarter to secure a 99-91 victory.

Edwards wasn’t the only player showing up late on offense. Tyrese Haliburton and Austin Reaves scored 16 points apiece. While Germany’s Franz Wagner scored 17 and Dennis Schroder notched a 16-point double-double with 10 assists, Jaren Jackson Jr. was a major deterrent around the rim with six rejections. Team USA has overcome its greatest test yet ahead of its first official matchup of the tournament against New Zealand on Saturday, Aug. 26.
