Team USA has its final tune-up on American soil before heading off to London to continue training there in preparation for the 2012 Olympics.
The U.S. takes on Brazil in Washington DC and while it’s just an exhibition game, it should be a pretty good test for the Americans. The Brazilians always play Team USA well and have some interior size and strength, which is said to be Team USA’s weakness.
In the first exhibition game Kevin Durant came off the bench, which was odd, but I’d expect more of the same for at least a little while. KD should probably be starting ahead of Melo, but Coach K is just kind of sticking with his 2008 experience.
Tip at 7 p.m. CT. Go Red (KD), White (Russ) and Blue (James).
