Team USA Basketball: Andre Iguodala And Teammates Dominate France

After a slow first quarter, the U.S. men's basketball team's offense picked up its pace and went on an 11-0 run to open the second quarter. Kevin Durant led the team with a game-high 22 points in the team's 98-71 blowout over France.

Team USA shot 0-for-6 from three-point range in the first quarter, and only led 22-21 heading into the second quarter. Despite Team USA's foul trouble, France hurt itself in the second quarter and ended the half shooting 1-for-11 from three and missing seven free throws.

France's best player, Tony Parker, finished the game with 10 points, but only 1 assist. His team will need to find some different options on offense or France's Olympic run will be cut short.

Arizona's Andre Iguodala played 11 minutes finishing with 1 point, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.

Next up for Team USA is a Tuesday game against Tunisia.
