Team USA Basketball Final Score: U.S. Crushes Tunisia 110-63

The only thing in doubt for the U.S. men's basketball team in Tuesday's match against Tunisia was if the Americans could overcome an imposing 55-point spread from oddsmakers. That mark was too tough for the U.S., but it was the only obstacle in a 110-63 win.

Kevin Love and Carmello Anthony finished tied for the scoring lead in the game with 16 points each, as the U.S. improved to 2-0 in Group A, the only undefeated squad left in the group. The Americans actually trailed at the end of the first quarter before building a 46-33 halftime lead thanks to LeBron James' physical defense and early scoring from Kevin Durant. Team USA shot 61.4 percent from the floor on Tuesday, almost double that of Tunisia (35.4 percent).

The Americans will have the day off on Wednesday before playing Nigeria at 4:15 p.m. CT.
