Lamb finished 2 for 16 from the field for the U.S. (7-2), which came in as the defending champion but was beaten in the quarterfinals by Russia.
Hugh Greenwood had 26 points for Australia (6-3), including six 3-pointers, but he missed a desperation 3 in the final seconds against some solid defense by Hardaway.
