Down 12 in the first quarter. Headed for another disaster at the Olympics. And then, Team USA became Team USA again. The Americans hit 12 of 16 shots in the fourth quarter and pulled away from Australia 89-79 to improve to 2-1 in the Games.
I have watched all the exhibition games and the preliminary games, and LeBron James is getting better with each game. LeBron looked lost in the early exhibition games, but now he is starting look like one of the best players on the court. James has clearly overtaken Carmello in minutes with his defense, hustle, and his ability make plays on the offensive in. James looked spectacular down the stretched as the United States pulled away from Australia after trailing by 2 at the beginning of the 4th.
Carmello played briefly, but again, his lack of defense and hustle gave him at seat on the bench after giving up an easy bucket at the half.
