Team USA Pounds China 119-62


The third viewing of USA-China in men’s basketball this summer looked just like the previous two.

After pounding China by a combined 99 points in two exhibition games in July, the USA won 119-62 on Saturday in the Olympic opener for both teams.

(Kevin) Durant had 25 points and six assists, and at that rate, Durant could surpass his American scoring record of 156 points in one Olympics.
