3y ago


Thanks to a historic night shooting, led by Carmelo Anthony, Team USA ran an overwhelmed Nigeria squad out of the gym on Thursday night in London. Led by Anthony's 37 points on 10-12 three-point field goals (both records), the Americans were able to score a record-smashing 156 points in the third of five group play games. The total more than doubled Nigeria's 73 output. For more on the fun-fueled night on the hardwood, here's Ben Golliver. Subscribe to our channel for more sports videos!
