We have the picks for the first Copa America Basketball Final. Confirming a perfect campaign with a 100% success rate, Argentina famously defeated the United States 82-73 to guarantee a place in the Copa America decider. Now, it remains to be seen which country will decide the title against the Argentinians this Sunday (11). At 20:40, Brazil and Canada will meet each other for the other semi-final bracket.

One aspect that the USA and Argentina have grown closer to in their Copa America rivalry is personality. On the North American side, the veteran duo of Norris Cole and Jeremy Pargo lead the USA’s offensive operations on a game-by-game basis. In South America, all the statistics of the team coached by Pablo Prigioni are headed by the trio: Gabriel Dek, Nicolas Laprovitola and, of course, Facundo Campazzo. Tonight, however, the Argentinian point guard sweated it out on the court and had a poor performance.

Although he repeated a high number of passes, seven in total, Campazzo used very few shots, 30.77%, and hindered the Argentine national team’s offensive development. Especially with multiple long shot attempts. At the end of the game, the South American ace was zeroed in the statistics.

This aspect, however, was not exclusive to the Argentine defender of Real Madrid. Combined, USA and Argentina’s usage from the three-point line was 22%. So the only option left was to look for penetrations and cast near the stained area. And Gabriel Dek became the top scorer of the match once again with a relentless game, with 30 points.

With the win, Argentina confirm an excellent Copa America campaign and now await the winner of the showdown between Brazil and Canada. This Saturday (10th) at 20:40, Brazil host Canada at the Ginácio Geraldo.
