Without fireworks, in a less spectacular end of what the number of stars on the track of Saitama Super Arena could augur, USA Team renewed its Olympic gold, a reign that remains solid, more if types like Kevin Durant They put the controls. France, the only rival capable of looking into the eyes on the physical section, never threw the towel, but there was not just a moment in which he did not even imagine champion.
If in the score this end was more partner than any of the three previous golds, those of the coach k era, in the sensations, in that passion that unleashed the Spain of Beijing and London, there was no comparison. The gala virtue was to endure the blows without losing all the balance, especially when the wisdom of De Colo was the one who guided him the orchestra of him. But the US, with Kevin Durant first and with the solvency of Jruue Holiday afterwards, minimizing his losses and without giving to nervousness, solved his most mechanical gold.
Because the initial notice, precisely against the French, already put them in orbit for the rest of the tournament. Especially unleashed at the crosses, they have not trembled more. And in the infinite arms of Durant is traveling in first class. The Alero de Los Nets was road on a record and stayed at a point of equaling the two past finishes.
He scored 12 of the first 18 US points and went to rest with 21. There was no pairing that harms him, everything became gold. Uploaded to his wave and with the great accompaniment of Tatum, another three implacable, those of Gregg Popovich, more serious than ever, without losing balls, with a defense before France did not find outlift, they went up little by little on the scoreboard (24-39). The irruption of Gobert's new (despite his problems with free throws), which of Colo finds more order, supposed a relief for the Gauls before the break (39-44).
It was always like this. A France to tow, supporting American rammarks with courage and losing more balloons from the recommended. That suddenly were hurricanes. With three triples of Madrid Yabusele, the Gauls survived around until, again, the USA Team was unleashed. He touched Rebat Holiday with the defensive leadership of him, coinciding on track with an unfocused heurtel. The sand saitama (57-71) trembled, but two triples in extremis (cabarrot and batum), were like oxygen puffs.
It was about resisting and playing the roulette of an erratic outcome. As happened in the game that opened these games, where France knocked on an empire that did not lose Olympically from Athens 2004. With a Triple Ntilikina, he approached (70-73) until they untied the Run Run in Saitama Super Arena, which among volunteers , guests and other looked less strange.
And again the Lazon of the USA Team, although now the striking was that Durant disappeared offensively. Without barely throwing the wing of the nets, the advantage was not so solid. And France was not going to stop tightening up to the finish line. Because it was a strange outcome, with failures and opportunities until the very final horn. First Fournier made him dream of a great triple and then precipitated the next. They were two Durant free throws that ended with any gala option, to which only the tears of Gobert (errked seven free throws) put emotion.Updated Date: 07 August 2021, 00:50
