On October 6-7 in Amsterdam, the FIBA 3×3 World Tour reached the third-to-last Masters. Miami faced the home team Vienne, and America quickly took the lead and maintained it throughout the match. Day 1 was finished by Miami when Vienna’s Enis Murati missed a critical 2-point shot with 6 fouls and 17 points. The final scores of Dylan Travis and Kareem Maddox gave them the lead in the end, according to a tweet from @usab3x3.

The video showed Vienna and Miama stood at 17:20 with 6:3 fouls with one and a half minutes countdown. The closing action unfolded with Kareem’s blocked shot followed by the defensive rebound after which Dylan made the 2-point shot. The homeboys were clearly overpowered by Western flair and precisely by the undrafted duo in their NBA draft. The tweet caption said,Miami goes 2-0 to open #3x3WTAmsterdam!
