Team USA basketball schedule: Live stream exhibition games ahead of FIBA World Cup, watch online, TV channel, dates

Team USA continued its preparation for the 2019 FIBA World Cup with a 90-81 victory in their exhibition game against Spain on Friday night. It was a true team effort, as seven different players scored at least eight points, and none tallied more than Donovan Mitchell's 13. This was the first look at Team USA up against another country, and they passed the test put up by an experienced Spanish side led by Marc Gasol and Ricky Rubio.

Next up, Team USA will face Australia in another exhibition on Aug. 22. That game will be down in Australia, where the squad will continue its preparation before heading off to China. 

Following the win over Spain, Team USA announced that it will be taking all the players still on the preliminary roster to Australia, and will make final cuts there. The task got a bit easier for those in charge following the departures of Kyle Lowry (thumb injury) and De'Aaron Fox (focusing on next season) in recent days. 

The roster will ultimately be trimmed down to 12 players by head coach Gregg Popovich. Champions in both 2010 and 2014, Team USA will be attempting to become the first team to ever three-peat at the World Cup. 

Each remaining exhibition will be broadcasted on NBA TV and streamed live on fuboTV (try for free).
