In USA Basketball’s first game in the quest for Olympic gold, they handled the Dominican Republic national team 113-59. USA’s leading scorer was Kevin Durant with 24 and Melo put in 13. Chandler had 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 block. Blake Griffin was replaced by the number 1 pick, Anthony Davis, because of an injured knee. Griffin will not participate in the Olympics and should be ready for the start of next season.
