The United States won a 87-74 victory over Poland and finished seventh at the China Basketball World Cup on Saturday, sealing its worst-ever performance in the tournament.

With the Boston Celtics trio of Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Smart, the United States scored eight of the 13 three-pointers and led the first half by 17 points.

However, the solid Polish team cut that advantage, up to seven points in the middle of the third half in the qualifying match for seventh and eighth place.

Donovan Mitchell scored five of his six field shots by recording a 16-point double and 10 assists, and his team scoring 48% from behind the three-point line.

Despite their tenacious game, the Poles could not get close enough to be a threat, and the Americans, who entered as favourites but finished seventh after defeat by France and Serbia, will be keen to do an examination of conscience rather than celebrate.
