FIBA World Championship 2010: USA Dominating Croatia At Half, 48-26

Team USA is halfway through its first preliminary round game against Croatia, and it would be difficult to ask for a better first half. USA leads Croatia by a 48-26 score going into the locker room.

Croatia actually managed to lead 19-18 at one point, but Team USA responded with a 30-7 run to take a dominating lead. Unsurprisingly, the player of the game so far is Kevin Durant, who has nine points and six rebounds so far. Durant, the biggest NBA star to appear in the tournament, was dominant during last week's game against Spain.

Here are Team USA's top scorers so far on Saturday:

Kevin Durant: 9 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists
Derrick Rose: 9 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists
Chauncey Billups: 7 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
Russell Westbrook: 7 points, 2 steals
Lamar Odom: 6 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist
Eric Gordon: 6 points
