Canada Brooks and Gilgeous Alexander ‘Pulpul’ The United States, considered the 'world's strongest', lost to Canada in the final match of the 2023 International Basketball Federation (FIBA) World Cup and turned away from winning a medal. **[토토사이트](https://www.totosafeguide.com)** The United States, ranked 2nd in the FIBA ​​world rankings, lost 118-127 in overtime in the 3rd place match against Canada (15th) held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines on the afternoon of the 10th. With this, the United States, which suffered its third loss (six wins), finished the tournament in fourth place. The United States is currently ranked 2nd in the FIBA ​​rankings, but is recognized by others as the best in the world of basketball. However, since they lost to France in the quarterfinals of the 2019 China World Cup and finished in 7th place, their determination heading into this tournament was special. The [United States](https://www.newyorktimesnow.com/en/read-blog/30057), which won the 2010 and 2014 tournaments featuring NBA stars, formed a team centered around rookies such as Anthony Edwards (Minnesota) and Jaren Jackson Jr. (Memphis) and attempted to return to the top after 9 years. However, they faltered after losing the final league match against Lithuania (8th place). In the end, after a close match in the semifinals, they lost to Germany (11th place) 111-113 and failed to advance to the finals. They also lost to Canada in succession and failed to hunt for a medal. On the other hand, Canada made history by reaching the semifinals for the first time and achieved the feat of winning its first medal. Dylan Brooks (Houston) exploded with 39 points and became the number one contributor to Canada's victory. Oklahoma City Thunder's ace Shai Gilgeous-Alexander also had a perfect performance, recording 31 points, 12 assists, and 6 rebounds. In the United States, key big men such as Jackson Jr. and Paolo Bankero (Orlando), who won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards, were unable to play due to injuries. [Walker Kessler](https://totosafeguide.blog.ss-blog.jp/Shin-Yu-bin-Jeon-Ji-hee-Jang-Woo-jin-Lim-Jong-hoon?1694975130) (Utah), who took the court on their behalf, scored only 6 points and 7 rebounds. Edwards fought hard, scoring a team-high 24 points, but was unable to prevent the loss. Michal Bridges (Brooklyn), who scored 19 points, intentionally missed a free throw 4.2 seconds before the end of the game when the game was down 108-111, and then showed a heroic performance by winning a rebound and scoring 3 points to signal the overtime. However, less than two minutes into overtime, Gilgeous-Alexander scored 7 points to bring the victory back to Canada, and Brooks, who took over the baton, also scored points with free throws, putting the game on hold.
