2023 FIBA World Cup: How to watch USA Basketball Malaga exhibition games against Slovenia and SpainAfter steamrolling Puerto Rico, Team USA will get another measure of their preparedness for the upcoming men's Basketball World Cup as they take on reigning champions Spain and a Luka Doncic-led Slovenia at the Torneo Centenario FEB event in Malaga. Find out how you can watch. The United States men’s basketball team’s 2023 FIBA World Cup redemption tour will continue in Malaga, Spain, where the USA will play its next set of warm-up games against Spain and Slovenia ahead of the official tournament tip-off on 25 August.
The three-day friendly event, which will see all three sides play each other once from 11-13 August, will be an important litmus test for coach Steve Kerr and his youthful U. S. side as they look to repair their international reputation. At the last World Cup in 2019, the Americans finished in seventh place, a result that would reflect their worst international showing to date. Though Team USA was able to turn the ship around in time to successfully defend their Olympic title at Tokyo 2020, in 2021, the result in 2019 was a sharp reminder that the global dominance of basketball once enjoyed by the US is no longer guaranteed - a reality underlined by their current No 2 world ranking.
This will be an important opportunity for the new teammates to get some minutes under together and build chemistry.

Spain vs Slovenia [LIVE] Score
That won't be the case this time around, and Slovenia will actually have the best player on the floor in Doncic. While the result of this game doesn't matter, it will be a big indication of where this team is at heading into the tournament. There are a lot of young players on this team who will be getting their first taste of serious international basketball, which is a different game from the NBA. It will be interesting to see how they handle that environment against a Slovenian side that has far more experience playing together. Furthermore, it will be worth watching how the minutes distribution starts to shake out as the contests get more competitive. Save for Josh Hart and Walker Kessler, everyone on the roster played between 10-23 minutes against Puerto Rico. That won't remain the same as we get closer to the real tournament, and we'll soon find out who head coach Steve Kerr actually trusts.
