Team USA will need to cut one more player before the World Championships begin in Turkey.

The belief is that the final spot will come down to Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook and Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

Westbrook's performance against Lithuania, when he scored 12 points on 4-for-5 shooting and got a sluggish United States team going, might make it hard for coach Mike Krzyzewski to cut him.

Team USA has 13 players and must trim the roster to 12 within 48 hours of its opener Saturday in Istanbul against Croatia.

After missing two days of practice with an ankle injury this week, Curry was the final guard off the bench in this weekend's exhibition games.
