When Coach Popovich needs to settle down, he went to his own Spur guy Derrick White. Although he had two turnovers in the first quarter alone he made his team better. When Giannis Antetotoukoumnpo put nine points in the first four minutes.
When White on the court he help his team to limit to 3 points only. He pressured Nick Calathes to set his team to make the right play. He knows how to help or double when Antetotoukoumnpo had the ball. He attempted to spin but change to passed it when he saw White ready to swipe the ball.
With the switch White force to guard a bigger player on the post. He never rattled just play honest defense and the shot is a miss. In the third quarter with the same play, he forced his man to pass out. White was very good when helping on defense. Greece started to put an extra pass in the arc and White ran outside to his man. He forces another one to make an extra pass that led to a shot-clock violation.
Offensively, he didn’t force himself for a point as the USA had so many. His first basket is coming from a cut in the rim. He takes a wide-open three in the corner in the third quarter.
