USA Crushes Spain in Last Exhibition

BARCELONA, SPAIN - JULY 24: Pau Gasol #4 of the Spain Men's Senior National Team jumps for a rebound during a Pre-Olympic Men's Exhibition Game between USA and Spain at Palau Sant Jordi on July 24, 2012 in Barcelona, Spain. (Photo by David Ramos/Getty Images)

Carmelo Anthony had 27, Lebron James went for 25, Kevin Durant went for thirteen in a battle between the top two teams in the world in what is expected to be a preview of the gold medal game. Marc Gasol sat out, as did Sergio Rodriguez. The American team started slow, but dominated the second half and the final score was 100-78.

Okay, I didn't actually watch the game and I forgot (well, we all forgot) to put up a thread for the game. I had a little trouble finding a boxscore which I included after the break. (If you find it hard to read you can download the pdf here.)

The competition starts for real Sunday at 9:30am. All the games will be streamed on NBCOlympics.com.
