Team USA Basketball Vs. Lithuania: Americans Up By Only Four At The Half, 55-51

Just one game removed from shattering multiple Olympic scoring records, Team USA Men's Basketball finds itself leading by the slimmest of margins over Lithuania at halftime, 55-51.

Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant have led the way offensively, with Anthony scoring 14 points and Durant nine points in the first half. LeBron James has chipped in six points and four rebounds for Team USA.

The Americans have looked sluggish defensively, allowing Lithuania to score relatively easily in the first half, as evidenced by a 55.6 shooting percentage from Lithuania prior to halftime. Lithuania has won just one of their first three games in group play, and are coming off a 82-74 loss to France.

The game can currently be seen on NBC Sports Network.
