In Team USA’s first game in the 2012 Olympics, they easily handled France, a team with 5 NBA players, by the score of 98-71. The US was able to take a big lead in the second quarter and never looked back. They were led by Kevin Durant’s 22 points and 9 rebounds. He was also 3-5 from 3. Kevin Love was a surprise contributor off the bench, scoring 14 points in only 14 minutes.

For the Nets, Deron Williams did not have an especially good game. In 21 minutes, he only scored 3 points on 1-6 shooting off the bench. He was unable to get into a rhythm against Tony Parker. Carmelo Anthony scored 9 points, but it came on a very Carmelo-like 3-10 from the field.

France is a very good team with 5 NBA players: Tony Parker, Boris Diaw, Ronny Turiaf, Nicolas Batum, and Kevin Seraphin. It is a very good sign that Team USA was able to beat the French so easily, because they may not play a team as good as France for the rest of the first round. The Americans looked focused in this game and they should be undefeated going into the elimination rounds.
