Team USA Basketball Dominates Great Britain, Kobe Bryant Continues Strong Play

Team USA continued their preparations for the 2012 Olympics on Thursday afternoon, facing Great Britain in an exhibition game. It was a complete blowout for the USA, with LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Deron Williams all scoring 15 points or more in a 118-78 victory.

Kobe Bryant continued to play strong defense and added five points on just three shot attempts from the field. Chris Paul had three points and dished out six assists, turning the ball over just one time. That is a great sign for Team USA. The afore mentioned Westbrook, who is a former UCLA Bruin, also dished out nine assists in addition to his 15 points.

Team USA will play two more exhibition games before the games in London begin.
