Patrick Mills says the Games are unique given the strict protocols around COVID-19, but coming into the village is “one of those things that’s hard to describe. Coming into the village, the first thing that we all talked about is that, for the majority of us, we all live away from home, away from Australia. [The village] is our connection to our home so that’s a really good feeling to hear accents again, be around Australian things again, whether its snacks or those little things you forget about — commercials, Farmer Wants a Wife, stuff like that.”

Q: Who is the biggest threat? Fran Fraschilla: I would say Australia just because of their great chemistry, camaraderie and toughness. They know how to play Team USA. They play the FIBA physical style of play which is reminiscent of NBA circa 1990s, and our Americans are used to touch fouls and two free throws. It’s something I think we’ll figure out by the time we get to Tokyo.

Team USA loses again

And for quite probably the first time in 29 years of NBA players suiting up for the national team, there was a smattering of boos when a game ended – on home soil, no less. Patty Mills scored 22 points and Australia held the US without a field goal for the final 4:34 on the way to beating the Americans 91-83 on Monday night, dropping the three-time defending Olympic gold medalists to 0-2 in their five-game slate of exhibitions leading up to the Tokyo Games. “We’re not satisfied. we’ve got a long way to go,” Mills told ESPN afterward. “We can still get a lot better. But defense is where we’re going to hang our hat this whole campaign.”
Patty Mills: “I get thrilled and excited about the opportunity to be able to tell people who I am and where I’m from. At the end of the day I imagine little girls and little boys, whether they are at home or at school … I can picture them and what they might feel or how they’ll react when they see someone like me being a representative of them. That’s what it’s all about, right? Having the next generation come up and be true to themselves, proud of who they are, proud of their identity, and to wear that on their chests … that can help them achieve their dreams.”
