If they scored again they would've broken an international scoring record right?

Great performance by Team USA.
The "B" Team was on fire in the fourth, raining 3s, dunks and layups, They had the complete arsenal.

Kobe was spectacular in the first half and had the play of the game,
Melo was Melo, and Lebron was excellent in facilitating (9asts).

They were really raining 3s this time. Redd was great. Miller too.

Bron is playing phenomenal...his FG% is something above 80% for the tournament, went 9-9 today with 9 assists.

Melo was unbelievable again too, 7-8 on treys.

Kobe is unstoppable as always.

I am pretty sure I saw him miss a couple of 3s.

Kobe is clearly the better suit than Wade. HIs ability to D up and shoot 3's helps so much. I love Flash , but maybe Team USA should consider adding someone else in place of him, perhaps a low post scorer or a Shawn Marion type player

I agree on a low post scorer. But more importantly we need someone who plays the 4 that can bang... We get abused on the inside way too many times.

Bingo, no need for Wade on this team anymore now that they have Kobe. I'd bring on Boozer if I were them, guy has low post GAME.

Kobe realizes.....one more game and back to reality.
“I put a lot of pressure on myself to go out and be great and the best player on the court. When I don’t, I feel bad for myself.” - Lebron James after Game 6 elimination to Celtics.

Very impressive performance by Team USA. They were on a mission from the beginning of this tournament.

There is a big difference in outside shooting with this team compared to 2004 and last year. The addition of Kobe, plus Carmelo and Lebron improving there outside shooting and the additions of Billups, Mike Miller ,Redd and Prince. Prince has knocked down some timely 3's when the other team got the lead down to 6 and he pushed it back to 9 or 12 points.

Wade doesn't strike fear into opponents the way Kobe does. Also, I would personally love Boozer.
