Defending champion Team USA advanced to the quarter-finals after defeating Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greece, 69-53, on Saturday night in one of the most memorable games of the 2019 FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup in China. 

Coincidentally, the motives of coach Gregg Popovich and Team USA are obvious - stop Antetokounmpo, who is currently the MVP of the National Basketball Association (NBA) under the Milwaukee Bucks camp. 

Team USA imposed a severe defense on Antetokounmpo with the help of two or three people on defense called "The Greek Freak." 

In this game, Team USA has shown that defense is more important than offense. 

>“It was a good test and helped us get better. That's our goal to get better in every one of these games, ”Popovich said. 

>“But that's expected from 12 guys who have never played together before. . . each day that we have we hope that our execution can get better and better, and as coaches learn what's best for these guys. ” 

Collaborating in defense of Antetokounmpo were Harrison Barnes, Khris Middleton, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Myles Turner. 

>"We just wanted to make it as hard as possible for him, and I think we did a good job," Smart said. 

Despite Team USA's strong defense against him, Antetokounmpo still managed to create a double-double of 15 points and 13 rebounds. 

After a fierce battle in the 1st quarter, Team USA's young force is slowly releasing its power as a force. 

Kemba Walker led Team USA with 15 points while Donovan Mitchell added 10.
