Team USA vs. Tunisia: Predictions for Tuesday Matchup

Ethan NorofCorrespondent IOctober 25, 2016

LeBron James and the USA basketball squad made it look easy against France in a dominating 98-71 victory in London, but will there be a letdown in store against the Tunisians?

The U.S. and Tunisia are set to square off Tuesday, July 31. The Tunisian team is coming off a four-point loss to Nigeria, and the underdogs will surely need to play the game of their lives just to have a shot versus the NBA's elite.

Will Tunisia be able to stay in the game, or will Team USA's transition game be too much to handle?

There is no question that Coach K and crew sent a message with their 26-point thumping of France to open up the action, but will it be one that has Tunisia quaking in its boots, or one that fires the team up to defy the odds?

Team USA goes into the matchup as enormous favorites; will any other club be able to stop the United States as the country marches toward a run at Olympic gold?
