Following a close start, Team USA was able to execute down the stretch to pull of the 33-point win (119-86) over Australia. See just how effective Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler were in today’s victory:
Tyson Chandler started the game on a good note, throwing it down on an alley-oop from LeBron James. Unfortunately, that would be just 2 of 6 points for the reigning DPOY as he made minimal impact on today’s game, yet again. Kevin Love, who struggled early on in the Olympics, is now on a tear- posting a double-double tonight (10 points, 11 rebounds) and essentially doing all the work down low. Chandler, who was expected to be right down there with Love doing all of the dirty work, played just 9 minutes and had a disappointing 6 points, 2 rebounds. Playing with confidence, Love doesn’t appear to be slowing down, so it will be interesting to see Tyson Chandler’s role and impact moving forward.
