Mikal Bridges He achieved a miracle that forced more time. It is not enough to prevent deer returned home after World Cup empty handed, and after 87 years of waiting, Canada He won medals again at one of the most important stages in basketball.

Dillon Brooks scored 39 points, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 31 points and 12 assists and Canada won his first medal in a men’s world tournament since 1936 by defeating deer 127-118 in the third place game in Manila last Sunday.

deer failed to medal for the second time World Cup one after the other. It was just the seventh time in 38 games at the Olympic or World Cup level that a US team did not come away with gold, silver or bronze.

“The United States has not won the World Cup since 2014,” said the American coach Steve Kerr. “It is difficult. These FIBA​​​​​​​​​​​​ teams are very good, they are well coached, they have continuity and they have been playing for a long time. It is difficult and it has been done.”
