Team USA defeated Tunisia easily with a score of 110-63 on Tuesday night under the lights in London. Even though the ending margin is something spectacular, that wasn't the case for the majority of the game. 

With the starting 5 slacking, Tunisia saw many slight leads early in the 1st quarter of play. After Kobe Bryant began slacking on the defensive end of the ball, Coach Mike Krzyzewski made a few changes. The second line of Team USA's squad seemed to be the difference maker and take top it off, The Philadelphia 76ers' Andre Iguodala made his presence felt.

After starting the game with a couple of emphatic tip-slams and resiliant perimeter defense, the Americans started a 24-2 run that started at the end of the 2nd and ended in the middle of the 3rd quarter. As usual, Iggy was a stat sheet stuffer. He finished with 6 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals and 5 assists while shooting 75% from the floor in 20 minutes of play.

Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant both added huge points to the effort, Durant had a double-double (13 points and 10 rebounds) and Anthony shot perfect from the floor finishing with 16 points. Kevin Love also added 16 points, including a couple of 3-point shots to the effort.

As long as Iguodala and the second line off the bench keeps bringing the lockdown defense and a barrage of 3-point shots, there's no team in the world that can match up better than Team USA.
