After Team USA had punished Tunisia by 47 points, Nigeria would be the United States next victim.
From the outset of the game, it was known that the Americans were going to win decisively. Indeed the United States did, but this time… in record-breaking fashion. The United States crushed Nigeria today with the final score of 156-73.
With the high score, the U.S. Men’s Basketball Team had broken the all-time single game output of 138 points set by the 1988 Brazilian National Team.
The United States shot a total of 29 three-pointers, posted an amazing 71% clip from the field and was simply unstoppable throughout the entire game. So impressive that Team USA found themselves leading by 83 points when the scoreboard read nothing but zeros. It was a truly great display of pure talent and domination.
The Nigerians might have not won the game and even though they’ll be known as the Olympic team that gave up over 150 points to their opponent, they can always look on the bright side. At least they dropped James Harden.
“Down Goes Harden… Down Goes Harden!” Now, that was embarrassing.
