Team USA Basketball Vs. France: United States Leads 52-36 At Halftime

Team USA Basketball began their gold medal defense on Sunday in London at the 2012 Olympic Games versus Tony Parker and France, with the United States holding a 52-36 halftime lead in a Group A qualifying game.

After a sluggish first quarter in which the United States led just 22-21, Team USA poured it on in the second, outscoring France 30-15 to take the 16 point halftime lead. Kevin Durant has led the way with 15 points and 5 rebounds, while LeBron James has chipped in five points, six rebounds and four assists and Tyson Chandler has added six points and seven rebounds.

France has been led by Florent Pietrus with eight points and the bespectacled Tony Parker with six points.

The game can currently be seen live on NBC Sports Network or streamed on NBCOlympics.com.
