SHENZHEN, China (AP) — The U.S. men’s basketball team figured that it would eventually cross paths with Giannis Antetokounmpo at this World Cup.

And the Americans were right.

For the first time, a reigning NBA MVP will play against the U.S. on a major international stage. Antetokounmpo and Greece (2-1) will be the opponent when the U.S. (3-0) opens second-round play on Saturday night, in what’s essentially a must-win game for the Greeks in their quest to reach next week’s quarterfinals.
