Men's Basketball: USA Beats Tunisia, 110-63
LONDON (AP) Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love scored 16 points apiece, Kevin Durant added 13 and the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team crushed Tunisia 110-63 on Tuesday night, turning a close game into a blowout with a spectacular second half.
The Americans (2-0) led by only 13 at halftime and appeared to be going through the motions. But with their second unit starting the third quarter, the U.S. outscored Tunisia 39-14 in the period and put on a crowd-pleasing performance on the way to its second straight easy win.
Anthony Davis scored 12 points 10 on dunks and Russell Westbrook added 11 for the Americans, who will face Nigeria (1-1) on Thursday night.
Makram Ben Romdhane scored 22 for Tunisia (0-2), which was within 46-33 but could do nothing to stop the U.S. after halftime.
