The Manimal continued his dominance on Wednesday by scoring a team high 16 points on 8 of 11 shooting (which actually hurts his 81% field goal shooting after 3 games) during Team USA’s 106-71 victory over the Dominican Republic.
DeMarcus Cousins was also dominant on the defensive end with 6 steals and 5 rebounds to go with his 13 points. Stephen Curry did a great job of distributing the ball and finished with a team-high 7 assists to go with 8 points and 6 boards.
Although USA won by 35 points, the game was actually close in the first half but a 22-0 run in the 2nd half which included a mini-dunk exhibition by the USA players helped put the game out of reach.
Team USA will play Ukraine today.
