LA Lakers shooting guard Austin Reaves and Team USA set to face Team Jordan in knockout play

Los Angeles Lakers’ shooting guard, Austin Reaves, along with his fellow Team USA players, is all set to extend their winning streak as they gear up for the knockout stage of the FIBA World Cup. Having already achieved two consecutive double-digit victories (a commanding 99-72 win against New Zealand on Saturday and a dominant 109-81 triumph over Team Greece on Monday), the LA team is now preparing to face Team Jordan, another contender in their Group C category. Notably, Team Jordan boasts no current NBA players within its ranks. The upcoming match is scheduled to take place in Manila, Philippines, making it a potential early morning or late-night spectacle for Lakers fans. The game is scheduled to tip off at 1:40 a.m. PT and will be broadcasted on ESPN2. For those unable to catch it live, the match will be accessible for on-demand viewing later on ESPN+.

Austin Reaves, the 6’5″ shooting guard hailing from Oklahoma, has showcased his skills as he enters his third year, contributing significantly to Team USA’s performance. With an average of 13.5 points, six assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game, Reaves has proven his mettle coming off the bench. His remarkable performance has earned him praise from both his high-profile teammates, including All-Star guards Anthony Edwards and Tyrese Haliburton, as well as the coaching staff. The team’s leadership is currently under the guidance of Golden State Warriors’ head coach, Steve Kerr, with Miami Heat’s head coach, Erik Spoelstra, poised to take the reins in the future.

As Team USA’s journey in the FIBA World Cup continues, all eyes are on Austin Reaves and his teammates as they strive for a perfect record in the knockout stage. With their previous commanding victories, the team’s confidence is soaring high, setting the stage for an exciting clash against Team Jordan. Fans eagerly anticipate witnessing Reaves’ exceptional skills and Team USA’s cohesive gameplay as they aim for another impressive triumph on the international stage.
