The Senior’s Men USA Team managed to take the win against Angola but it hardest is yet to come. Team USA has been steady with their wins during the Summer Olympics seeing that they haven’t lost against one opponent they’ve played. USA won by 21 points (97-76) last night against Angola. Team USA is buckling down for their tougher opponents coming up Thursday against Greece.
Dwayne Wade has been dominating during the Olympics! Wade scored a total of 19 points. LeBron James finished with 12 points. James shots were going up rocky behind the 3-point line but no one could stop him inside the paint. My boy, Kobe Bryant also didn’t have the most spectacular night either. He shot poor behind the 3-point line as well but still manage to put up 8 points in the 3rd quarter. Kobe talked about his rough night in Beijing:
“It’s been a struggle,” Bryant said. “I think we have to adjust to being spot-up shooters, all of us. We’re not acclimated to being spot-up shooters, so that’s something we have to tweak a little bit and get used to.”
Greece will be a tough competitor in the Olympics and Team USA definitely has the skills and mental power to come through as champs. The next airing game will be 8AM/ET (our time) on ESPN against Greece. Check your local listings. Check out the rest of the pics from the game.
