Team USA overcomes sluggish first half to beat Turkey, 98-77. Anthony Davis scored 19 points, all coming in the second half.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis' work appears done. If so, finishes with 19 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 steals. Went 8-11 from field (4 dunks, 2 tip-ins)

Jim Eichenhofer

So much for a quiet game by Anthony Davis. He had 0 points at halftime, partly due to picking up 2 fouls. Davis up to 19 points in 2nd half

Jim Eichenhofer

In a span of only 59 seconds, Anthony Davis threw down two alley oop dunks, then tipped in another oop for an and-one. USA 82-63 at 6:05

Jason Calmes

Anthony Davis went scoreless in the first half. He now has 17 points, just one shy of Faried's game-high 18.

Jason Calmes

James Harden wants credit for the hockey assist on that Davis throwdown.

Jason Calmes

Asik has been a turnover machine today; 5 so far. Shouldn't be as glaring w/ the Pels, as the ball won't be in his hands nearly as much.

Jim Eichenhofer

Anthony Davis scored 11 points in 3rd qtr to spearhead USA's 31-20 edge. USA up 66-60 entering 4th. Omer Asik 6 pts, 8 reb, 3 blk

Jason Calmes

Davis & Faried have a combined 25 points on 16 shots, and Team USA hardly went to them inside in the first half. Keep feeding the big boys.

John Reid

Anthony Davis has jump started Team USA in 3rd quarter, controlling the pace much better now. Team USA leading Turkey, 64-59.

John Reid

After going scoreless in the first half against Turkey, Anthony Davis has scored nine points in the opening 3 minutes of 3rd quarter.

Jim Eichenhofer

Pelicans teammates Omer Asik and Anthony Davis now matched up often in 2nd half. Davis 9 quick points in 2:52 span. Turkey up 51-48 in 3rd

Anthony Davis asserting himself much, much better so far in the second half. 9 points in a little over 3 minutes.

Outstanding half for Turkey, leading USA 40-35 at intermission. Omer Asik 3 pts, 7 reb, 2 blk. Anthony Davis (1reb/1 blk/1 stl) 2 fouls

Jim Eichenhofer

USA taking cautious route by sitting Anthony Davis with 2 fouls (FIBA limit's 5). Omer Asik 3 pts, 7 reb in 9 mins. Turkey 28-25 in 2nd qtr

Jason Calmes

#USA & #Turkey tied at 25 with 3 minutes remaining in the first half. Anthony Davis is scoreless & has 2 fouls. Asik w/ game high 7 boards.

John Reid

Team USA struggling against Turkey's mix of zone and man-to-man defenses right now.

Jason Calmes

Anthony Davis bites on the pump fake and commits his second foul.

John Reid

Team USA-Turkey tied at 16 at end of first quarter. Anthony Davis went scoreless but had a block and grabbed one rebound.

Jason Calmes

#USA & #Turkey tied at 16 points through one quarter of play. Asik has twice as many rebounds (6) as anyone else on the court.

Jim Eichenhofer

Turkey's Omer Asik was a rebounding machine in 1st qtr, with 6 boards in 7 minutes. Rare quiet qtr for Anthony Davis (0pts/1blk). Tied at 16

Jason Calmes

Davis checked out during the last stoppage in play. No points, but a rebound, a block, and some great all-around defense.

Jason Calmes

Davis hasn't been utilized much on the offensive end, but he has been a major factor defensively thus far.

Jim Eichenhofer

Only took 1:03 for Anthony Davis to block a shot. Omer Asik has 3 early rebounds plus an and-one layup for Turkey, which leads 10-5 at 6:48

John Reid

Pelicans' Omer Asik already making impact with his rebounding against Team USA. He has grabbed four of Turkey's first six.

Jason Calmes

Not so sure about that foul call on Davis. Looked like solid defense.

Jason Calmes

Impressive offensive rebounding there by Asik, going to the line for the and-one opportunity

Jason Calmes

Team USA's size, talent and depth too much for Finland. USA leading 89-39 at the end of third quarter.
