The Tokyo Olympics reach its conclusion and so does the basketball events in it. The best of the lot are going to come face to face here as the powerhouse USA will encounter the heavily talented France. More about FRA vs USA Dream 11 will be given below.
FRA vs USA Dream 11 Prediction
France has played some exceptional basketball throughout the Olympics and has not been beaten so far while the USA also has looked in sync recently. It is interesting that the USA’s only loss came against the French men, who were engaged in a highly tense tussle with them until the French defense locked it down in the fourth quarter. However, things have changed for the USA since then and they have looked unbeatable on both ends of the floor. Here, the match-up between Kevin Durant and Nicolas Batum becomes interesting as the latter is the one responsible for France’s entry by blocking a last-second shot in the Semis. While Batum is a high-quality defender, he will need to chip in with some offense to keep up against the offensive machine in the USA. Although France beat the USA earlier the American team is in a way better rhythm now and surely has the edge.

FRA vs USA Top Picks
1. Kevin Durant
PPG: 19.0 RPG: 5.2 APG: 3.8
Kevin is one of the best players to ever play the game of basketball. Durant has it all covered, shooting, driving, and a highly effective in-between game. He can score over Forwards, guards, Centers, you name it. Kevin has the ability to take over games and he can be an elite defender, playmaker, and rebounder, as well. Woah! Kevin is a favorite for Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Evan Fournier
PPG: 19.2 RPG: 3.2
Fournier is the mainstay of the French offense and leads them in PPG during the 2020 Olympics. He has a superb shooting touch but he can also act as a driver and mid-range player. Evan will need to continue his glorious form and carry the French team over the finish line. He can be chosen as a Pro-Player in the Dream 11 Fantasy scenario.
3. Devin Booker
PPG: 10.8 RPG: 3.8
Booker is playing an off-the-ball shooter role for the Americans and his silky shooting touch enables him to pop from long range. Devin helps the USA stretch the floor and that is why the USA becomes difficult to guard, having 5 long-range bombers in one go at the floor.
4. Rudy Gobert
PPG: 11.4 RPG: 9.6
Gobert is one of the best defensive bigs in the game and he can pull down tough rebounds while being a finisher at the rim. Rudy is the last line of defense and gave the USA offense a lot of trouble during the last encounter.
5. Jrue Holiday
PPG: 12.0 RPG: 4.8 APG: 4.4
Holiday has been a consistent performer for the USA and has the glitter of an NBA championship right now. He is a two-way player and it is a problem to deal with him at either end of the court. He can also set up teammates for easy buckets and rack-up boards.
6. Nando De Colo
PPG: 13.8 RPG: 4.4 APG: 6.0
Nando has been highly effective at the offensive end and the veteran guard has all the bases covered. He has an incredible shooting touch and uses his dribbling abilities to create open spaces. He is also a superb rebounder and playmaker, making him an all-around threat
7. Thomas Huertel
