USA Basketball Game Thread: USA vs. Nigeria

Team USA plays one more before heading to Rio. Will Paul George play?

Basketball: USA Basketball Team Training Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Team USA wraps up their exhibition schedule with a friendly against Nigeria on Monday night in Houston.

The game tips off at 8 p.m ET and will be televised on NBA TV and streamed on Facebook live.

Considering Nigeria is ranked lower than Venezuela, not mention much lower than Argentina and China, Team USA should be able to finish strong before heading Rio.

Paul George did not play in the lackluster effort in Chicago which saw the U.S. squad beat Venezuela by 35 points due a strained calf. PG did workout with the team at the Toyota Center on Sunday so it appears he could play tonight but will once again be a game-time decision.

FREE PG! At least we know he can still shoot it.
