USA Basketball vs. Serbia: 2014 FIBA World Cup Final Preview

Heading into the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski - without LeBron James, Kevin Durant , Carmelo Anthony, Paul George or Chris Paul at his disposal - was seen as marshaling perhaps his weakest team in over a decade. Eight games and a 32.5-point-average margin of victory later, the Americans enter Sunday's gold-medal game against Serbia with a chance to close out one of the most dominant performances in the history of international basketball.

Derrick Rose held to 4 points, but Team USA headed to final

After having what appeared to be his breakout game of the FIBA World Cup in Tuesday's quarterfinal win over Slovenia, it was once again Derrick Rose back to his suddenly passive self on Thursday, scoring just four points on 1-for-8 shooting in the 96-68 semifinal win over Lithuania. Thanks to 16 third-quarter points by James Harden, as well as a team-high 18 points from Kyrie Irving, Team USA will now play in the gold medal game on Sunday, facing the winner of Friday's Serbia-France game.
