However, after a close call against Australia earlier this week and now another against Serbia, the rest of the field might be starting to believe the Americans can be taken.

Nikola Jokic scored 25, Milos Teodosic 18 and Miloslav Raduljica 18 before fouling out for the Serbs, who fell to 1 3 but left Carioca Arena feeling confident after taking the Americans down to the final ticks. ,129 92.

But the Serbs got a basket by Jokic and two free throws Teodosic to get within three.

Durant, who only attempted four shots, misfired with eight seconds left giving Serbia one last chance. After a timeout, the ball wound up with Bogdanovic, who had a great look from 22 feet but was just off the mark. has won by 10 or fewer since 2006 raised the possibility that this American team might not be as golden as previous ones.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski, though, insists there is more global balance in hoops.

people look at it like it just supposed to be easy, whenever anyone says that, I kind of tune them out because they don understand, he said Thursday. don understand that other people are really good. We going to get back to 2000 and 2006, where we arrogant, we don give people credit, we think it all going to be easy and then we not going to play well and we not going to win.

can fall into that. in their matchup with the Aussies, the Americans were in attack mode from the start.

They were connected on defense and they put on an early offensive exhibition, flashing the firepower no other team can match.

After Durant made three throws, Paul George knocked down a 3 pointer and Cousins, who has spent more time off the floor than on it the past two games because of foul trouble, made a play that drew a huge roar from the crowd and Serbia bench.

Snagging a pass from George at mid court, the 6 foot 10 Cousins spun away from Teodosic and went in for an uncontested dunk to make it 8 0. Serbia coach Sasa Djordjevic thought Cousins traveled on the play and was slapped with a technical foul.

been really good throughout the process

Hobey Baker Award winner Jimmy Vesey had high praise for the Sabres Wednesday night during an interview with Comcast Sportsnet New England but again made it clear that he’s not signing with the team before he gets the chance to become an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 15.

Vesey met last week in Boston with General Manager Tim Murray, coach Dan Bylsma and assistant scouting director Jerry Forton, one of his freshman year coaches at Harvard. The Sabres own Vesey’s rights until Aug. 15 by virtue of their draft week trade with Nashville.

“I thought it was a really good meeting. . It was informative and I felt really comfortable talking with them,” Vesey told CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty after a summer league game in Foxborough. “They’ve been really good with me throughout the process.”

Vesey said he liked having the opportunity of sitting down with an NHL coach and general manager as a precursor to perhaps several interviews after Aug. 15.

“It was a good meeting to get a feel for what the process is going to be like,” he said. “We’re going to Aug. 15 like I’ve said all along, but to talk to a GM and a coach is going to give me an idea what to expect. . They said to me they’re not trying to create a circus or anything like that and they’re going to leave me alone now. So I respected Buffalo throughout the whole thing.”

(Read my column in Wednesday’s paper for Murray’s thoughts on the meeting, which were also positive).

Vesey’s father is a part time scout for the Toronto Maple Leafs and has said publicly he would prefer his son not stay home and play for the Boston Bruins. But Vesey seemed exceptionally eager to get a chance to talk to his hometown team, mentioning that he wears No. 19 because he’s a fan of former Bruins star and current San Jose standout Joe Thornton.

“I’ve said it all along Boston is definitely on my list of teams I’d like to talk to,” he said. “It’s been a team I’ve rooted for my whole life. I watched them win the Stanley Cup in 2011 so I’ll definitely be meeting with Boston in August.

“I’ve gotten to know Torey Krug a little bit playing with him in world championshipslast year. It would be really cool to play with Torey and put on the Bruins jersey because it’s a team I’ve watched my whole life.”

Vesey said he has relationships with several NHL players like Sabres’ center and current summer league teammate Jack Eichel. Any of them could turn into a key factor.

“It’s definitely on my mind a little bit,” he said. “It would definitely be a little bit more comforting to walk into a locker room and know somebody there.”

Vesey did say this won’t be a wide open process when his free agency date rolls around.

“I think 29 teams would be a little bit crazy to meet with all of them,” he said. “We have a little bit of a short list going with me and my agent and family. We’re going to narrow it down as best we can and try to get through it as quick as we can once Aug. 15 comes.”
