The U.S. women’s basketball team will play against Japan on Saturday, hoping to expand its Olympic winning streak to 55 games and win the gold medal for the seventh time in a row.
In this year’s competition, the Americans overwhelmed their opponents to a large extent, winning by an average of 16.2 points in their previous five Olympic games. However, U.S. team defender Subod believes that this team did not perform at its best.
“Like American basketball, when we come together, we just try to take a path, on this path, we are getting better and better every day,” Bird said After defeating Serbia in the semifinals. “So I still think we can reach another level, and I hope this is what happened in two days.”
Will the US team reach that level and continue to dominate? Or will Japan complete one of the biggest upsets in Olympic basketball history?
