MADRID (SportingAlert) — Watch Team USA take on Serbia in the final of FIBA World Cup Basketball on Sunday live on WatchESPN and ESPN2.
The Americans bullied everyone on their way to today’s final and start as the favourites to seal top honors, although Serbia will be no pushovers.
“They’re probably the hottest team, and they’re playing at a high level,” Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski said about Serbia ahead of the clash.
“They have stars on their team, and (Milos) Teodosic, I loved him when I saw him in the World Championships in ’10, Bogdanovic is a rising star.
“Their big guys (including former NBA big man Nenad Krstic) are good, they’re well coached, and they’re strong. They can hurt you from many different positions.
“They’re just playing great basketball right now. Actually, it’s beautiful to see. I hope I don’t see that beauty tomorrow night.”
Victory on Sunday for Team USA will see them becoming only the third team to ever repeat as world champions in the FIBA World Cup.
