Team USA star forward Kevin Durant remains bullish about the side's ability to adjust their game in their pursuit of a gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
USA were beaten 83-76 by France in their opening game at the Tokyo Olympics having been beaten by Australia and Nigeria in exhibition games in the lead-up.
The losses have led to criticism of the cohesion of Team USA who are 15-time Olympic gold medalists, but Durant insisted there was no panic ahead of Wednesday's second group game against Iran.
"Our adjustment is we just make more shots," Durant said. "We've got the best talent in the world on the team."
USA led throughout the first half against France before collapsing down the stretch, surrendering a 74-67 advantage.
"We got each other good shots," Durant added. "We know how to play off each other."
USA assistant coach Lloyd Pierce reiterated Durant's calmness about the situation, stating they need to remain confident.
"The keys to beating these guys is just being ourselves, worrying about what we do best," Pierce said.
"We want to get out and play fast and create extra possessions throughout the course of the games.
"It's only 40 minutes, we have to make this game a little bit faster and get as many easy shots as we can.
"We have to be ourselves as well. Our guys have to play with confidence, have to play with the freedom they're used to, they also have to do that together, make simple plays, quick plays and enjoy the experience."
Brooklyn Nets forward Durant provided a positive assessment of the impact of Khris Middleton, Jrue Holiday and Devin Booker who played against France after competing in the NBA Finals last week.
The trio arrived barely 48 hours before the France game, with Holiday top scoring with 18 points plus four assists from 27 minutes.
Booker shot poorly, with four points and three assists from 18 minutes, while Middleton only had five minutes of game time.
"What they did to me felt like just who they are," Durant said. "I always have a high-level respect for all three of those guys.
"For them to come out and play, not really complain about anything, be excited to be here [full credit]. Those guys are amazing talents, it's great being around them."
