Whether because of their friendly feud with the '92 team or their record-breaking performance against Nigeria, the 2012 team have been the talk of the Olympics. So far they've been living up to the hype and have disposed of every team they've faced quickly, with the exception of Lithuania. Team USA was coming off the high of beating the breaks out of Nigeria by 83 points and hitting 29 threes when they ran into a gritty Lithuanian team. The US struggled from the field, but still managed to come away with a 99-94 win. They followed that close call up with a 29-point shellacking of Argentina to end group play with a 5-0 record.
What the team lacks in size they make up for in offensive efficiency, especially Carmelo and KD—they've been lights out. Team USA plays Brazil in the quarterfinals tomorrow. Let's see if this band of NBA stars can get it done and bring home the gold. Anything less would be considered a failure.
