Team USA Basketball vs. Lithuania: LeBron James Leads United States To 99-94 win

Team USA basketball received a serious scare on Saturday in London. After riding high against Nigeria, a team with no real chance this summer, Lithuania came out and took advantage of a U.S. squad that simply wasn't focused.

Despite trailing for most of the first half and even being tied at times in the third quarter, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Co. managed to pull out the 99-94 victory to stay undefeated.

James completely took over the game down the stretch and tied for the team lead with 20 points. Anthony also had 20 points as he continued to play very well in international play. Kevin Durant added 16 points, while Chris Paul went for seven points and dished out six assists.

Arizona's two representatives, Andre Iguodala and James Harden, did not play very much on Saturday due to matchup problems. The two combined for a total of six minutes and three points while on the court.
