In the final tuneup for the FIBA World Cup, Team USA rebounded from a loss to Australia with an 84-68 victory over Canada.
Australia beat Team USA in Sydney on Saturday, busting a 78-game winning streak in front of more than 50,000 home fans.
Team USA was led Monday by Celtics forward Jaylen Brown, who called for teammates to “change their mentality” after the Australia loss.
Brown led the offense with 19 points and Team USA dominated the game at the defensive end, holding Canada to 32 percent shooting. Canada’s Kyle Wiltjer led all scorers with 21 points.
Kemba Walker and Donovan Mitchell added 12 points apiece and Myles Turner had a double-double (10 points, 15 rebounds) for Team USA, which begins World Cup play next week.
Team USA survived another poor shooting effort from the perimeter and committed 19 turnovers in the game.
