USA WINS 114-69 IN EXHIBITION OVER PUERTO RICO!
The game may not have counted but Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and company dazzled the crowd in Las Vegas with fast breaks, dunks and a few big blocks. Coach K's philosophy hit the team in a good way and I saw more effort on defense by the entire team. They were lead by Carmelo Anthony with 18 points and one for the highlights, a big dunk! He is the one that Coach K really shines on. He helped him increase his intensity and ferocious defense. Antawn Jamison was blazing off the bench with 16 points. Jamison is just one of the many threats on the US bench. It only makes the decision to cut a few more players harder for Coach K. Dwyane Wade put on a dunk contest and added 14 points. Wade was the offense attack for the US in the second half. LJ and Joe Johnson contributed with 10 points each. LeBron and all of the stars on the team won't get big minutes. The next game for the USA is Monday but it still won't count but it will be against Yao Ming and China.
