LONDON (AP) - The U.S. men's basketball team survived its first true test of the 2012 Olympics, coming from behind in the fourth quarter to defeat Lithuania 99-94 in group play.
LeBron James took over late, scoring nine of his 20 points in the final four minutes to help the Americans remain unbeaten and avoid their first loss in Olympic competition since the 2004 semifinals in Athens. Carmelo Anthony tied for team scoring honors and Kevin Durant chipped in with 16 points.
