MORE: Key takeaways from France's stunning win

Final score: France 83, USA 76

- That'll do it! France stuns USA. Impressive win from France.

- Damian Lillard was whistled for an unsportsmanlike call. That's two free throws and possession for France. Evan Fournier goes 1-for-2 from the line, putting France ahead 79-74.

- Wow. It looks like Team USA drew up a play for Damian Lillard, but he fell down after receiving the ball and turned it over. That might do it.

- Nando de Colo gets fouled, sending him to the line. He makes them both to give France a 78-74 lead with 21.8 seconds remaining.

- What a crazy sequence. Team USA got not one, not two, but three good looks from the perimeter - one each from Zach LaVine, Kevin Durant and Jrue Holiday - but were unable to knock them down. France maintains the 76-74 lead.

- Wow. Rudy Gobert goes 1-for-2 at the free throw line to make it a one-point game. Evan Fournier then hits a 3-pointer off of a broken play to give France a 76-74 lead with 0:57 to go. Danger time for Team USA.

- Oh. Bam Adebayo misses two free throws. Score is still 74-72 in favour of Team USA.

- Just when it seems like Team USA might pull away, Nicolas Batum knocks down his first 3-pointer of the game. Evan Fournier follows it up with a jumper of his own, and Team USA now leads only 74-72 with 2:41 to go.

- Ah, bad foul on Nicolas Batum. He hits Devin Booker's hand on a 3-point attempt, sending him to the free throw line for three freebies. Booker knocks down two to put Team USA ahead by seven.

- Another one. This time Jrue Holiday gets a layup to put Team USA ahead 69-63. He's taken this game over.

- So ... Team USA would be in trouble right now if it weren't for Jrue Holiday. He knocks down another 3-pointer to give Team USA a 67-63 lead with 6:03 to go.

- Jrue Holiday follows it up with a pair of free throws. We're tied up at 63 with 6:57 to go.

- Jrue Holiday knocks down an important 3-pointer for Team USA, making it a one possession game.

End of third quarter: France 62, USA 56

- France outscores USA 25-11 in the third quarter to take the lead. Should be a veeeery interesting fourth quarter.

- Nando de Colo is heating up. He's scored seven straight points for France - two 3s and a free throw.

- There it is: Nando de Colo knocks down a 3-pointer to give France a 55-54 lead with 2:42 to go in the third quarter.

- We're tied at 52, courtesy of an and-one from Vincent Poirier. With Kevin Durant in foul trouble and Damian Lillard on the bench, important minutes coming up for Team USA.

- Another bucket for Evan Fournier. He's up to 22 points for the game, and Team USA's lead is down to 52-49.

- Uh-oh. Kevin Durant picks up his fourth foul of the game with 6:45 remaining in the third quarter. That's bad news for Team USA. Jayson Tatum is coming in for Durant.

- France has already made more 3-pointers in the opening minutes of the first quarter (2) than in the entire first half (1). Both were from Evan Fournier, who is up to a game-high 18 points.

End of second quarter: USA 45, France 37

- Bam Adebayo leads the way for Team USA in scoring at the half with 10 points, followed by Damian Lillard (9) and Kevin Durant (7). France has committed nine turnovers and is shooting a miserable 1-for-11 from 3-point range, but four offensive rebounds and 14-for-21 shooting from 2-point range have helped keep things close.

- Looks like Guerschon Yabusele hurt his knee. He appears to be heading to the locker room to get it checked out.

- Quite the response from Team USA out of the timeout. Zach LaVine knocks down a 3-pointer off of a pass from Jrue Holiday and follows up it with a dunk in transition following a steal from Draymond Green. It's a nine-point game again.

- Another dunk for Rudy Gobert, this one off of a dunk-in against Jrue Holiday. Team USA's lead is 37-33 .

- Wow! What a play from Nicolas Batum. Goes out of bounds to save a loose ball and throws a nifty pass to Rudy Gobert underneath the basket for an uncontested dunk. France continues to hang around.

- Kevin Durant picks up his third foul of the game with 4:33 to go in the first half. Remember, international basketball allows only five fouls. Durant's heading to the bench.

- Team USA calls a timeout, leading 34-27 with 5:24 remaining in the half . France is hanging around thanks to the play of Evan Fournier, who has a game-high 10 points.

- Damian Lillard might be starting to heat up. He's made his last two 3-point attempts, making him Team USA's leading scorer of the game with nine points.

End of first quarter: USA 22, France 15

- Team USA leads by seven points after one. Turnovers has been a story early in this one, as France has commited six turnovers already.

- Back-to-back turnovers for France, back-to-back buckets in transition for Jayson Tatum. Team USA stretches the lead to nine points, 22-13 , with the first quarter winding down.

- Team USA leads 18-11 with 3:30 remaining in the first quarter. Kevin Durant (7) and Bam Adebayo (6) are both off to strong starts, combining for 13 of the team's 18 points.

- Zach LaVine exits early with two fouls. He's being replaced by Jrue Holiday.
