Not saying that he is any good or I want him in Orlando, but he played really well in 4th quarter, good defense and crucial points from 3-point land. He finished with 11 points and +22 (Gobert was +26).
As for USA players, I won't judge them because at least they decided to play, they didn't withdraw and they got unlucky with Tatum's injury (AG could have filled this hole), but I can't understand why they took Plumlee, man, can't you find a better player? Really? He is so bad for a National Team that they didn't even play him.
Another thing to point out is that all of the NTs have a real team, they play together for years and years, just adding/removing some talents when it's time, but USA has no team, it's just a bunch of players and then, after 2 years, another group. Even with a great coaching staff (Gregg, Kerr, etc) is very hard to succeed. They tried to get some team cores (Celtics with Jaylen, Tatum and Smart), which is a good idea, but Jaylen and Tatum are too young and Smart is not smart in terms of BBall IQ
