LONDON (AP) - The U.S. men's basketball team has broken its Olympic record for 3-pointers in a game, making 14 during a 78-point first half against Nigeria.
The Americans were 14 of 24 behind the arc on their way to a 78-45 lead at halftime on Thursday. That broke their record of 13 made against Spain in the gold-medal game in 2008.
Carmelo Anthony made five 3-pointers, Kevin Durant made four and Kobe Bryant made both of his attempts to lead the long-range attack. After failing to make a 3-pointer in the first quarter of either of their first two games, the Americans were 11 of 14 in the first 10 minutes on their way to a 49-25 bulge.
