Fournier, Gobert lead as France eliminates Team USA from World Cup

Team USA basketball had won 58 consecutive global games with NBA players - that was before Wednesday's quarterfinal matchup against France in the FIBA World Cup in China. His Frenchmen just snapped a 58-game win streak in worldwide tournament play by the Americans.

Despite the loss, the USA did secure a berth into the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but can only finish at least fifth in the World Cup tournament. Marcus Smart scored 11 points off the bench for Team USA and Kemba Walker added 10 points.

Team USA's hopes of winning a third consecutive FIBA gold medal - and sixth consecutive global gold medal - are now over.

The U.S. faces Serbia in the consolation round Thursday. It also marked the United States' first loss in the FIBA World Cup since 2006 when it lost to Greece in the semifinals.

France spoiled an impressive performance from Donovan Mitchell, Gobert's National Basketball Association teammate, who led Team USA with 29 points. The U.S. will clearly have to make some major tweaks to the roster before the Olympics get underway.

Of course, they'll have to win two more games to do it, and the next one will come against Argentina, home of Parker's former Spurs teammate Manu Ginobili.
