FIBA World Cup 2019: Patty Mills calls Aussies’ win over U.S. ‘a building block for us’

Australia beat the United States for the first time in history in Melbourne on Saturday, and Patty Mills hopes the Boomers can build something special from the landmark achievement.

Team USA won the first exhibition 102-86 at Marvel Stadium on Thursday, but the hosts responded with a 98-94 victory in front of 52,079 fans two days later.

Australia came from 10 points down in the second half, with Spurs guard Mills scoring 30 – including the last 10 for the Boomers – to lead the historic triumph.

“It’s a building block for us. We’ve been taking it step by step and understanding that this is process. But it’s good to get everyone back and get everyone on the floor,” said Mills in an on-court interview.
