Russia allowed far fewer fast-break baskets than the previous U.S. opponents, successfully keeping the game in the halfcourt and forcing the Americans to run more offensive sets. That was fine with Kobe Bryant, who scored 12 points after halftime in his highest-scoring game so far. Dwyane Wade continued his strong play off the bench with 16 points for the Americans, who play their final exhibition game here Tuesday against Australia. LeBron James had 10 points, six rebounds, and two assists in 24 minutes. U.S Team will play their final exhibition game on Tuesday against Australia. Info via espn.com.
