US, at the end: Durant, Booker and another brutal reaction to delve into the curse of Australia

It did not seem the most propitious occasion for Australia to end its basin curse. As if the god of the baskets had forbidden him to touch the medals, whether in games or global, despite the power of 'boomer' of recent times. They tried it before the USA Team and, for a moment, they touched the sky in the second quarter. From the one that came down completely when Devin Booker accompanied in his mission to Kevin Durant (97-78).

The script of the first semifinal had some resemblance to the duel against Spain. The US went out to see them come and the enthusiastic Aussie drove them to sleep. With the triples of Goulding and the leadership of Patty Mills, with a defense that at that time did not leave the resques, Australia came to dominate for 15 points (25-41) when Landale culminated an Alley Oop of Exum. Red alert. Balls for Durant.

In that hurry, again as against Spain, the US lowered pulsations, looked at his star and began to shrink waters before rest. And again he succeeded, getting close enough to give the lunge around. And this was brutal. A 32-10, with the Booker points now, with the frantic rhythm that makes Popovich recognizable, which dabbed any hint of surprise.

If Spain had pushed until the last minutes, Australia did not have that option. It is the eleventh time that the boomers fall into a match with a medal at stake, whether Olympic or global. On Saturday, against Slovenia or France, they will have another occasion to retaliate for the bronze.

US Aguarda rival for which it would be his fourth consecutive Olympic gold, the 16th of his story, on Saturday at Saitama Super Arena.
