The USA Men's Basketball team struggled in their exhibition games leading up to the Olympics, including losing two games.
On Sunday morning, the USA Men's Basketball team lost their first Olympic game since 2004 as France went on a 16-2 run in the final minutes to stun the Americans by a score of 83-76. The USA was favored by 12.5 points heading into the game.
The USA was a heavy favorite (1/4 odds) to win the Gold Medal but the rest of the world is not going to make it easy for them.
