USA vs BRA Dream11 : Group K ends with a bang today as we wrap up the second round of the group in befitting fashion with two colossal sides locking heads against each other
What began as a tricky campaign for USA at the ongoing FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 has taken no time in settling down nicely. The side have sealed their progression into the quarter-finals with four wins from four matches, helping quell notions of the side enduing a tedious time in the showpiece tournamnet with some clinical performances.
After topping their first round group, the side entered the land of the second round with a momentous 69-53 win over Greece. Touted to be their trickiest opponents till date in the tournamnet, it was a result which diminished the flak directed at them at the beginning of their campaign, one which was relentless in nature given the identity of this side.
And it’s a display the side will be looking to resonate today as well as they eye making an advent into the quarter-finals with their pristine form intact. They know they are up against another well-versed and astounding today as well, a Brazil side which will be fighting to keep their chances of making it though to the next round alive.
After being minced out by Czech Republic in their previous contest, suffering a shambolic defeat as they were put down 93-71, Brazil in third place at the moment know they can’t afford any more slipups. Today’s clash is a must win one for them, a fixture they know they need the two points from at any costs if they are to have chances of making it through to the proceeding round.

USA vs BRA Match Prediction
Although Brazil will look to put up a massively improved performance and paper over the cracks which lead to them being chastened in their last match, USA is going to be just too strong a side for them to defeat. Especially given the way their defence fell apart in the last match, the chances of Brazil winning this one are extremely small, negligible at best as we make a foray into today’s encounter.
Brazil will go onto lose this one and with be shunted out of the running in to make it to the quarter-finals.

USA vs BRA Dream11 Point Guard
A stunning 15 points paired with 6 assists in the previous round saw USA’s point guard, Kemba Walker cascade in a hoard of attacking contributions for the side. The point guard has been one of the two most pivotal performers for the side, someone who has used his versatile skill set to not only dominate proceedings from the back of the court but also relentlessly canter his way down to shoot the ball.
Elsewhere the 6 assists against Czech Republic see us bring in Brazil’s Mercelinho Huertas into our side as well for today’s clash.
USA vs BRA Dream11 Shooting Guard
While we mentioned Walker as one of the two most important players for USA, completing the puzzle is their point guard, Donovan Mitchell. He and Walker have concurrently conjoined their shooting skill set to not only send down doubles but be pinch perfect in setting themselves up for treys as well.
Brazil’s Vitor Benite is selected as well by us with the side’s point guard putting on a 12 point display in his previous outing, a good performance from the side’s best shooter.
USA vs BRA Dream11 Small Forward
The 2 assists and 1 block see us get in Brazil’s Bruno Caboclo as the first player into our side in this facet. His contributions in the defensive side of his team’s game are going to take precedence over everything else and be of paramount importance as Brazil go scouring for a gameplan to curtail USA’s attacking sojourns midway.
We are also choosing USA’s Jaylen Brown for this segment after he latched onto 9 rebounds in the previous encounter, being the first player to win possession back for his side.
USA vs BRA Dream11 Power Forward
With 3 steals in the side’s previous clash, USA’s Harrison Barnes comes into our side for today’s match. Brazil are going to offer ample chances to USA to turn over possession, something which will see Barnes heavily involved in today’s match as the two way players looks to contribute in both sides of the court for his side.
USA vs BRA Dream11 Centre
Myles Turner closes out our side for this clash with the player profiteering from his side’s ability to churn out attacking chances with aplomb, seeing his position right next to the post resulting in him picking up both points and assists.
