Team USA Vs. Tunisia, Olympics 2012: U.S. Picks Up 110-63 Win, Remains Undefeated

The United States men's basketball team was favored by 55 points heading into Tuesday's game against Tunisia at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The second game for the U.S. in Group A pool play never got quite that out of hand, but Team USA once again put on a show, winning by a final score of 110-63.

Tunisia grabbed a brief four-point lead in the first quarter before the United States settled down, cranked up the defensive intensity and really began to pull away heading into the second quarter. By the second half, the game had already turned into a glorified dunkfest, with Andre Iguodala getting in on the action ...


... and Anthony Davis driving home a sweet alley-oop.


Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love tied for the scoring lead for Team USA, pouring in 16 points each.

There were plenty of Team USA fans in attendance, both on and off the court. Tunisian players approached the United States team after the game for some autographs. Kobe Bryant happily obliged.


The U.S. is now the only undefeated team remaining in Group A. Argentina, Lithuania, France and Nigeria are all currently 1-1, and Tunisia drops to 0-2 with the loss.
