Another game, another easy victory for the U.S. National Team. Behind 21 points from Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James, the USA cruised past previously unbeaten Brazil to end the preliminary round of the FIBA Americas Champioship with a 113-76 win on Sunday. Anthony and James got a helping hand from Kobe Bryant (20 points), as well as a stifling defensive effort that limited Brazil to 39.1 percent shooting and Leandro Barbosa, who had led the tournament in scoring, to just four points on 1-for-7 from the floor. The U.S Team moved to 4-0 with the victory.
