Team USA will look to continue its winning ways in its final group stage game Thursday against Brazil.

After beating Puerto Rico and Venezuela by a combined 55 points, Melo Trimble and the U.S. will get their first real test of the tournament against the next-highest ranked team in the games.

Trimble scored five points in each game off the bench for team USA, but has yet to find his groove. Thirty-five-year-old Damien Wilkins leads the red, white and blue in scoring through these first two games with 35 points total on 61 percent shooting.

Brazil put a beat-down on Puerto Rico in its first game, and beat Venezuela by 15 Wednesday night. Hot starts have been key for Brazil. It got out to a rediculous early lead against Puerto Rico, winning by 31-6 at the end of the first quarter. After one quarter against Venezeula, the team led 22-9. Brazil has a balanced scoring attack led by guard Vitor Benite, who scored 16 in the team's first game and 14 in the second, and is 5-for-9 from three.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Team USA holds the No. 1 spot in the world FIBA rankings, while Brazil is ranked No. 9 in the world and No. 2 in the Americas. The U.S. beat Brazil when the teams met in the 2011 Pan American games by a score of 88-77.

Vegas: Team USA is favored by 7.5 points.
