    10 threes! Melo has 37 points!

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Melo runs and shoots an instant 3, two guys run right past him and neither considers even raising a hand up. sad.

    The Olympic record is 138....the team USA senior record is 137.

    Pretty sure both are going down today.

    119-62.

    This would be a humiliating final score.

    But there's still 10 minutes left.

    Putting the zone in is only making things worse.

    At least in man to man, we gave up open shots.

    Greatest shooting performance I have ever seen, at any level. I give up. I have nothing left to say about this.

    Carmelo set the team USA men's Olympic single game scoring record....in 14 minutes.

    The previous team Olympic three point record was 13. They made 29 tonight,

    watching that game was like watching the pacers 3rd quarter against the denver nuggets a couple seasons ago....except it happened in every quarter....and even then it doesn't even come close to how ridiculous that game was...was that real life? lol

    Team USA is playing for all the Americans who ever fell for a Nigerian email scam. #ThrowItDown

    And just to be a jerk.....

    If that were the 92 team, they would have won by 100. Nigeria wouldn't have scored until midway through the third quarter.

    Incredible day in Olympics basketball, so happy I decided to watch 3 entire games today! Also, I've seen an awful lot of GB. To me the so-called debate about Deng and Granger has been decided. Deng > Granger
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!

    And the Granger hate continues...

    You do realize the FIBA game is very different from the NBA game right?

    But everyone has their own opinion

    And + it is not just about FIBA vs. NBA. Deng is called on to do everything for GB, unlike Granger for us, so he (Deng) will look better in that context. Doesn't mean it translates. Same with how great Ike looked for Nigeria. Or, for that matter, BBD for Orlando in the Playoffs.
