This unit that the United States of America sent to London put a beating on the Dominican Republic. On July 12, the U.S. basketball team beat the Dominican Republic 113-59. It was a no contest. USA also beat Brazil 80-69 because of some very good shooting. Later on, the USA contested Great Britain and beat them 118-78, also a no-contest just like the game against the Dominican Republic. Argentina gave the USA basketball team a scare by scoring on open baskets and taking advantage of missed opportunities that the dominant force that used to belong here in this country gave away. The U.S. basketball team held on and beat the Argentines 86-80. Then, the U.S. basketball team showed Spain on July 24 how to play basketball and beat them 100-78 behind Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James. What will hold the Americans back from playing their best basketball is if European teams exploit their lack of size on the interior and all the while, beating the Americans from the perimeter by making long jump shots. This is where the Americans will suffer, if they do expose a lack of having a back-to-the-basket game.
