Team USA head coach Gregg Popovich said that the atmosphere created by 51,218 fans in Marvel Stadium during the game of his team against Australia made him feel like he was in a movie.

“It felt like I was in a movie. Like it was a movie set. I kept looking behind because I knew I was going to fall off stage. And then I talked to my coaches saying “I don’t know what the hell is going on.’ It was a really weird coaching situation,” Popovich said during the post-game presser.

Team USA captain Kemba Walker felt quite excited with the attendance. “It was amazing. It was an amazing time. I was just super excited to play in front of that many people,” Walker said per Ben Mallis.

Popovich saw his players defeating the Australian side in the first of the two games that will be played between the two teams, prior to the World Cup. The second match is set to take place Saturday (24/8).
