Team USA made easy work of the French national team in men's basketball today with a dominant 98-71 victory paced by Kevin Durant's 22 points. Now they must look forward to the future rounds starting with Tuesday's game against Tunisia in the second game of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
The slate should become a bit easier for the next week as the Americans face Tunisia and Nigeria back to back. Lithuania will give the men's team a real challenge and Argentina even more so. However it's clear that the players are growing as a unit with each passing game, so the chance to warm up against subpar teams should bring them even closer.
Here's a complete rundown of the team's that are left and the schedule of the final games.
