Team USA Basketball improved to 2-0 in men's Group A play with a 110-63 win over Tunisia on Tuesday at the 2012 London Olympics.
Philadelphia 76ers forward Andre Iguodala got to play almost 20 minutes off the bench in the blowout. He finished the game with six points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals. Iguodala only saw 11 minutes of action against France in the opening game and scored just one point.
The U.S. had a slower start that most people expected and led Tunisia by 13 at halftime. The culprit was poor three-point shooting by the U.S. and red hot shooting from behind the arc by Tunisia. The U.S. hit merely two of their 12 first half threes while Tunisia hit 7-of-16 from behind the arc. The U.S. hit 8-of-13 from deep in the second half in building their blowout. Tunisia hit just two threes in the second half.
Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love shared the U.S. scoring lead with 16 points. Kevin Durant had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Anthony Davis, James Harden and Russell Westbrook also scored in double figures for the USA. Tunisia's Makrem Ben Romdhane led all scorers with 22 points. He also had 12 rebounds.
The U.S.' next game will be against Nigeria on Aug. 2.
