Sweet 16 for Carmelo Anthony as U.S.A. crushes Tunisia


LONDON (AP) - Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love scored 16 points apiece, Kevin Durant added 13 and the U.S. men's Olympic basketball team crushed Tunisia 110-63 on Tuesday night, turning a close game into a blowout with a spectacular second half.


The Americans (2-0) led by only 13 at halftime and appeared to be going through the motions. But with their second unit starting the third quarter, the U.S. outscored Tunisia 39-14 in the period and put on a crowd-pleasing performance on the way to its second straight easy win.


Anthony Davis scored 12 points - 10 on dunks - and Russell Westbrook added 11 for the Americans, who will face Nigeria (1-1) on Thursday night.


Makram Ben Romdhane scored 22 for Tunisia (0-2), which was within 46-33 but could do nothing to stop the U.S. after halftime.
