Team USA Puts Brazil on Notice

Brazil, with height and speed, is supposed to be Team USA's main rival for the Americas Cup championship. It didn't look that way Sunday as the US throttled South America's best team, 113-76, leading by more than 40 in the third. The Americans had three 20-point scorers in Carmelo Anthony, Lebron James and Kobe Bryant. Jason Kidd, now 32-0 in international play, had four points and five assists in 15 minutes. The US plays Mexico 11 p.m. Monday on ESPN2 as teams begin the second round.
