ANOTHER OLYMPIC FAIL: Team USA men’s basketball falls to France in Olympics shocker

Team USA was fried by the French in a stunning men’s basketball opening loss at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Americans led Team France by seven with under four minutes remaining, but the French scored the next 14 points for a shocking 83-76 victory at Saitama Super Arena.

Nets star Kevin Durant was in early foul trouble and finished with 10 points on 4-for-12 shooting in 21 minutes before fouling out in the closing seconds. Jrue Holiday net a team-high 18 and Bam Adebayo adding 12.

Team USA’s next Pool A game is Wednesday against Iran, which lost its opener, 84-78, earlier Sunday to the Czech Republic.

Evan Fournier scored 28 points to lead Team France, which played without Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina, who sat out due to a leg injury.

    I want reimbursement of expenses incurred.
    The game was thrown.
    More racial/political “statements”?
    I think so.
    Is there no end to 200 years ago?
