James led USA Basketball Squad get Second Win Against a Surprising Brazilian Side

Washington, United States- With the American side being down at the end of the first quarter 27-17, James pushed a 25-5 run that showed how deep and defensively solid this team was.

James led all scorers with 30 points, also with 6 rebounds and 4 steals to lead Team USA to a 80-69 victory. James had great support from Kevin Durant, who was playing in his home city Washington, finished 11 points and Chris Paul finished with 10.

Team USA sustained a lead all through the second half with their smallest lead being 6 points with under six minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Alex Garcia led the Brazilian side with 14 points. Varejao also recorded 12 points and 13 rebounds.

The exhibition game was a great identifier that this team is no where near their full potential. Playing in a fast tempo style game is when Team USA is absolutely unmatched. The key to a USA gold medal is if they continue to outrun and tire the other teams out.

Team USA will face Great Britian in Manchester in 3 days.
