France won a thriller against Slovenia. Both teams put up a show and had fans at the edge of their seats right until the very end. Luka Doncic has lost his first game in a Slovenian jersey as France beat them 90-89. For France, Nando De Colo put up 25 points, and Evan Fournier put up 23. Although Slovenia won’t get a chance to win Gold they definitely have won the hearts of basketball fans.

Both these teams are truly deserving but when it comes to who will take it all home, the safest bet to place is on Team USA. The Kevin Durant-led squad has bounced back hard on both ends of the court. The team did have a few problems at the beginning of their Olympic Campaign but right now they are looking menacing and are favoured to bring home the Gold Medal once again.
