It was a dark day for Team USA as they had to face a loss against France at the score of 83-76. While this is just the beginning for Team USA, the pressure has to be unreal, as Team USA has never lost an Olympic match since 2004.

With the team having blown their gasket in the fourth quarter, France surprisingly emerged victorious, and even Kevin Durant seemed to have struggled while facing off the other team. Many found that the chemistry of Team USA simply isn’t on the level need to win the tournament.

However, as far as the halftime entertainment went, the stage was set for something great. As the Japanese robot entered the court, fans knew what they were in for, as it was first unveiled in 2019.

The 7-foot-tall robot is programmed to take shots from the free-throw line, the three-point line, and has the capacity to take shots from the half-court line. Many netizens took to Twitter to show their shock and surprise at the accuracy of the robot. The programmers of the robot have done an amazing job, which is definitely worthy of praise.
