Kevin Durant hit the game-winning shot against Nigeria Thursday. It was Team USA’s first attempt that made it 3-0. Because the game was over right then and there.
It was just your typical 83-point blowout as Durant went for 14, Russell Westbrook 21 on 7-of-8 shooting and James Harden seven. Carmelo Anthony was absolutely on fire hitting 10-of-12 from 3 and finishing with 37 points, which set a new U.S. Olympic record. (The all-time American international record is held by KD who scored 38 against Lithuania in the 2010 World Championships.)
