Team USA Exacts Some Revenge

Puerto Rico was one of those teams that embarrassed Team USA at the Athens Olympics. Tuesday night in Las Vegas, the US exact its revenge, burying the island's team, 117-78, with a suffocating defense that has become the equal of its exhilirating offense. Jason Kidd played only 14 minutes, didn't take a shot (again) and left the court with four assists, two rebounds and a steal plus helped hold Carlos Arroyo to 12 points. Lebron James had 21. Next up: Uruguay at 11 p.m. Wednesday on ESPN2.
