Team USA Vs. Lithuania Score Update: Americans Lead By Just 4 At Halftime

The story at halftime of Team USA's game against Lithuania is the same as it was after the first quarter. Team USA continues to score fairly easily, but Lithuania is hanging around, trailing just 55-51 at halftime of the fourth of five preliminary games for both teams in the 2012 Olympic basketball tournament.

Team USA is not as hot as it was against Nigeria, but it's still shooting around 48 percent from the field. However, Lithuania is getting whatever it wants as well, both in half-court sets and in transition. Lithuania is shooting 56 from the field and closed the half strong to cut the deficit down to four.

Linas Kleiza has 16 points to lead Lithuania, though he did most of his damage in the first quarter. Carmelo Anthony has 14 points to lead Team USA, while Kevin Durant added nine points.
