    How both the teams fared in the Group so far?


    Though the world no-1 won the first two games and are already through to the next round, they have hardly hit the top gears.

    The 21-point win over the Czech Republic was hardly convincing at all, while the win over Turkey was down to the luck.

    The Turks more than matched the prowesses of USA, forcing an over-time following an 81-81 tie after the end of the regulation period. Popovich’s men just about managed to edge the Asian team out 93-92 after winning the over-time 12-11.

    Popovich must improve his team as the profile of the opponents will only increase.


    Japan are out of the competition following two consecutive defeats against Turkey and Czech Republic in Game-1 and Game-2 respectively.

    USA vs JPN Dream11 team News:


    • Gregg Popovich has no injury concerns ahead of this game.


    • No injury concerns for Japan ahead of this game.

    Squad for the FIBA World Cup 2019:

    USA squad:

    Marcus Smart, Harrison Barnes, Jaylen Brown, Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton, Kemba Walker, Derrick White, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Harris, Jayson Tatum, Mason Plumlee, Myles Turner

    Japan Squad:

    Seiya Ando, Makoto Hiejima, Ryusei Shinoyama, Rui Hachimura, Kosuke Takeuchi, Yuta Watanabe, Shuto Ando, Joji Takeuchi, Yudai Baba, Nick Fazekas, Daiki Tanaka, Avi Koki Schafer

    Players to watch out for: (Captain options):

    Kemba Walker: It’s clear that the Boston Celtics’ new star was not at his best in the first game. But when the situation needed him, he delivered with his clutch shots, single-handedly erasing a five-point deficit in the over-time.

    The 28-year-old Guard will be confident and against an opponent like Japan, who are lacking both the confidence and the height, Walker may come into his own here.

    Last season:

    • Points Per Game: 25.6
    • Rebounds Per Game: 4.4
    • Assists Per Game: 5.9

    Donovan Mitchell: The 22-year-old is coming off a strong season with Utah Jazz. Not only he is an unbelievable offensive player, but Jazz’s guard has taken his defence a notch above what it was last season.

    Last season:

    • Points Per Game: 23.8
    • Rebounds Per Game: 4.1
    • Assists Per Game: 4.2

    Khris Middleton: Scored two vital free throws in the overtime in what was a pressure cooker situation as the USA escape with an improbable win.

    The 28-year-old can provides good amount of points and defensive stability from the bench.

    Last season:

    • Points Per Game: 18.3
    • Rebounds Per Game: 6.0
    • Assists Per Game: 4.3

    Jayson Tatum: Scored a double-double against Turkey. Defended the paint well and was always a threat while facing the opponents’ paint.

    Last Game:

    • Points: 11
    • Rebounds: 11

    USA vs JPN Dream11 Teams (Starting Lineup; Probables):

    • USA: Donovan Mitchell, Harrison Barnes, Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, Myles Turner
    • Japan: Rui Hachimura, Yuta Watanabe, Nick Fazekas, Daiki Tanaka, Yudai Baba

    Likely to play from the bench:

    • USA: Joe Harris, Khris Middleton, Derrick White, Marcus Smart, Brook Lopez, Jaylen Brown
    • Japan: Ryusei Shinoyama, Makoto Hiejima, Joji Takeuchi


    USA will start the game as favourites.
