Taking a detailed, possession by possession look at how Dante Exum fared versus an absolutely stacked Team USA squad (featuring Marcus Smart, Elfrid Payton, Aaron Gordon and more) in their lone meeting at the FIBA U19 World Championships last July.
Note: Exum averaged 25.5 points and 4.8 assists in the next four games after his encounter with Team USA, almost single handedly willing his team to the semi-finals and an eventual fourth place finish. These were essentially the last competitive games Exum played in before his eventual NBA debut next season, and thus a substantial part of his evaluation as a NBA prospect.
