Team USA Basketball Vs. Lithuania: Americans Hold Slim 55-51 Lead At The Half

Just one game removed from shattering multiple Olympic scoring records, Team USA Men's Basketball finds itself leading Lithuania by only four points at halftime, 55-51.

Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant have led the way offensively, with Anthony scoring 14 points and Durant nine points in the first half. Chris Paul has chipped in four points, four rebounds and four assists for Team USA.

The Americans have looked sluggish defensively, allowing Lithuania to score relatively easily in the first half, as evidenced by a 55.6 shooting percentage from Lithuania prior to halftime. Lithuania had won just one of their first three games in group play coming in to this game, and were coming off a 82-74 loss to France.

The game can currently be seen on NBC Sports Network.
