It's the first tournament loss for Team USA since the 2006 World Championships, snapping a streak of 58 straight wins with National Basketball Association players representing the country in worldwide play. Gobert's Utah teammate carried Team USA for the opening 30 minutes, pouring in 29 points, including 12 in the third quarter.
The win sends France to the semifinals where it will face Argentina, which scored an impressive upset victory over Nikola Jokic and Serbia.
The players who chose not to be a part of this year's United States of America team assembled for the FIBA World Cup were a bigger topic of conversation than the players who were actually a part of it.
Now, the Americans will have to shift their attention to the Summer Olympics in 2020 where they will try to defend their gold medal title from 2016.
The only positive they will take from the tournament is that they have qualified for next year's Olympics in Tokyo alongside Australia, Argentina, Spain, France, Iran and Nigeria.

The team will need to add more floor-spacers and versatile big men, as both were areas of weakness for the '19 iteration of the team that were exposed against France.
Mitchell finished the contest with 29 points, six rebounds and four assists, and he had 14 points in the third quarter alone to help the US bounce back after it fell behind by double digits for the first time. Jazz center Rudy Gobert patrolled the lane for France, and France's wings secured the perimeter.
On the other side of the coin are Celtics fans, who might understandably feel slightly concerned following the United States' elimination from the World Cup, considering the fact that four of Boston's key contributors were on Team USA's roster.
Shenanigans in the press and the revenge factor aside, though, Gobert was clearly the best player on the floor in this contest. Boston forward Jayson Tatum didn't play due to an ankle injury. Spain awaits the victor of Wednesday's Australia-Czech Republic game in the other semifinal.
