“I thought Brazil gave us a tough fight in the first half,” Turner said after the game. “They played with a lot of heart, but we turned it on in the second half. We came together as a unit and executed.”

Jaylen Brown (11 points) and Harrison Barnes (10 points) also finished in double figures. Team USA will head to Dongguan to face France in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
