Disappointing wouldn’t be the exact word to describe*Team USA‘s first half against and over-matched*Tunisia*team. Pathetic or embarrassing would be more like it. Thankfully Team USA’s second unit, led by*Carmelo Anthony*and*Kevin Love, helped them cruise to an easy victory in the end.
This game was projected to be a blowout. The spread was 55 points in Las Vegas. But no one told Tunisia that in the first half of the game. Tunisia shocked the U.S. and the world with an array of*three-point shots, layups and dunks in the first half of Tuesday’s preliminary game. Macram Ben Romdhane was one of the stars for Tunisia, posting a double-double (22 pts and 11 rebs). He had a variety of dunks and layups, leaving the U.S. defense in complete disarray a few times. Tunisia was only down 13 points at half.
