Klay Thompson is back in the starting lineup for Team USA against France after playing a reserve role the previous two games.
The Splash Brother has struggled mightily with his shooting through the first four games of the Olympics. He shot just 15 percent from the field (4 for 26) and 18 percent (3 for 16) on 3-pointers.
Contrast that with last season for the Golden State Warriors when he shot 47 percent from the field and 42.5 percent on 3s.
Paul George started the previous two games, but Team USA had sputtered against Australia and Serbia. So against a France team that was coming off a dominating performance against Serbia, Coach K went back to Thompson at shooting guard.
