Box Score

LONDON, England -- With the USA trailing 82-80 in the fourth quarter, LeBron James (Miami Heat) scored nine of his 20 points in the last four minutes to help the U.S Olympic Men's Basketball Team (4-0) outlast Lithuania (1-3) for a hard-fought 99-94 win to remain undefeated in the 2012 Olympic Games on Saturday afternoon at the Olympic Park Basketball Arena in London, England.

Deron Williams (Brooklyn Nets) scored five of his 12 points in the last 4:31 as well, while Carmelo Anthony(New York Knicks) finished with 20 points, and Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder) added 16 points in the U.S. win. Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers) scored seven points, dished out six assists, grabbed seven rebounds and collected four steals, and Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves) was the team's high rebounder with eight boards while adding seven points.

Former Blue Devil Marty Pocius scored 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting. Pocius, who also grabbed seven rebounds, is averaging 9.5 points per game for Lithuania.

"We had to make some big plays to win," said USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski (Duke University). "So far in the tournament things have come easy to us because we've been hitting so many shots, and today because of the defense sometimes I think we passed up on shots because of guys hitting so many, you want to see them hit again instead of taking your shot. We can play better, but we played against a terrific team today. We had 17 steals that didn't translate to the number of points that they should. Usually we get some momentum but today we got steals but not the points. It showed great resolve on their part that when they did make a mistake, they recovered quickly and didn't have their head down. We beat an outstanding team today and had a lot of game pressure on us and we came through, and I am proud of them for doing that."
