After a slow 20 minutes that got fans worried, the U.S. Olympics basketball team swooped in with a 110-63 win over Tunisia on July 31.
LeBron James and Kobe Bryant were up in the first half but a failing start made coach Mike Krzyzewski bench them. He then started the second-half with his players in double figures and an improved 2-0 in the tournament, according to The Associated Press. The third-quarter opened with a 21-3 run because of players Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Love, Deron Williams, Andre Iguodala and Russell Westbrook.
