Nigeria beat Team USA Sunday morning in their pre-Olympic basketball exhibition at Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In an unexpected turn of events, Mike Oni of the Utah Jazz, Gabe Vincent and Team Nigeria stunned NBA superstars Kevin Durant, Damian Lillard and Team USA 90-87.
Though this is just an exhibition match, it just shows that USA Men’s Basketball team composed of NBA stars is beatable. One thing however is that other players of the US team did not play as they are still focused on the NBA Finals. The US Men’s Basketball team is scheduled to face 4 more tune-up games before the Olympics in Tokyo.
Mike Brown led Nigeria against Gregg Popovich of the USA.
