New Zealand had no answer for Anthony Davis. Neither did Turkey or Finland, but on Tuesday it was the All Blacks turn to look helpless.
Like on this first-quarter alley-oop from Kyrie Irving to Davis.
Through three games Davis is averaging a team best 19 points a game on 65.2 percent shooting. He has been the best player on Team USA, arguably the best player in the tournament. The USA has a long way to go (two more group games in Bilbao before heading to the knockout stage, which starts in Barcelona), but Davis is looking like this tournament could help him break out in the public consciousness — and be a springboard to a huge season for the Pelicans.
