USA Basketball started slowly in the team’s final stateside exhibition on Friday, but came together in the second half to rout the team from Puerto Rico as expected.
There were some highlights along the way, of course, including a couple from Anthony Davis, an in credibly sick pass from Stephen Curry, and a buzzer-beating three from Klay Thompson — all of which can be seen in the video clip above.
Final roster cuts were made following the game, and there were at least a couple of mild surprises.
