The leader of Spain and Real Madrid, Sergio Llull, spoke with the Spanish media and referred to Team USA and the national team’s opponents in the first round.

“It’s clear that the USA are firm favorites but it’s never good to think about them beforehand. We just have to follow our path, win our games and go as far as possible and try to fight for the medals.

We’re in a good group (Iran, Puerto Rico, Tunisia) and we have to try and win all of our games to finish first and head into the Second Round on the right foot,” Llull said, per FIBA.
