Team USA Basketball Vs. Tunisia: Americans Overcome Slow Start To Win 110-63

It wasn't the fastest of starts for Team USA. The Americans led by just six points at the end of the first quarter, 21-15, against a team, Tunisia, they were favored to beat by 55 points.

Carmelo Anthony would lead the United States in scoring with 16 points on a perfect 6-for-6 shooting from the field, including 2-for-2 from beyond the arc. Kevin Love also had 16 on 6-for-9 shooting, as well as six rebounds.

Collectively, they shot more than 60 percent from the field, and afterwards, signed a few sneakers.
