Australia wait for an Olympic Gold medal continues, after failing to beat USA men’s Basketball team in the basketball semifinals match at the Tokyo Olympics.
USA won 97-78.
The Boomers led with 15 points but failed to build on it, forcing an incredible come-back by team USA led by Kevin Durant who dropped 23 points, closely followed by Devin Booker with 20 points.
It will be recalled that Australia defeated team USA in a pre Olympics exhibition game, casting huge scare to USA chances of getting a medal at the Olympics, but the American have responded to that pretty well so far.
With the win USA are heading to their fourth consecutive gold medal match for the Olympics.
Patty Mills led 3 Australian players with double figures, scoring 15 points.
Australia will face either of France or Slovenia in the 3rd place match, as they will now have fight to get a Bronze medal and surpass previous fit.
