Team USA Handles Australia in Exhibition Game


After a slow start Thursday, the U.S. Men's National Team stayed perfect in its exhibition schedule play with a 102-86 win against Australia. Team USA led 22-20 after the first quarter, but found itself up only one point at halftime after Australia guard and San Antonio Spurs standout Patty Mills nailed a 3-pointer as time ticked down.

The third quarter was a different story as the U.S. team forged a 76-61 lead behind big scoring performances from starting guards Kemba Walker (23 points) and Donovan Mitchell (13 points). In addition, starting center Myles Turner was more than solid in the middle, contributing 15 points and 14 rebounds.

Australia was led by Mills (19 points) and Chris Goulding (19 points).
