Lithuania didn’t put up much of a fight when it came to basketball in the 96-68 victory for Team USA but a fight almost broke out before half-time and after the game.
With less than 2 minutes before half-time, the Raptors Jonas Valanciunas elbowed DeMarcus Cousins in the throat causing Cousins to loose his cool for a sec and act as if he was going to punch Jonas in the back of the head. Then after the buzzer a few players from each team got into a mini scuffle but thankfully no punches were thrown.
Kyrie Irving led the US with 18 points while Harden and Klay Thompson each had 16.
Team USA will play the winner of the France and Serbia game.
