Team USA amped up their defense against a Dominican Republic team – coached by Kentucky’s John Calipari - by forcing 27 turnovers, which led to 38 points.  Not only was their defense on all cylinders, but so was their offense.  Team USA had 27 assists, which led to 42 points.
 
Kevin Durant led the way with 24 points, scoring his first 21 points in the first half.  The scary part is that Durant didn't even start; he came off the bench.
 
Meanwhile, the Dominicans best player, Al Horford, only had 7 points, while shooting 1 of 12 as Team USA paid special concentration to him on defense.  The rest of the team did not fare much better, shooting only 32% for the entire game.
 
As a result, the final score was 113-59.
 
There are still 4 more exhibition games before Olympic competition begins on July 29th and the U.S. looks primed and ready to destroy anyone in its path.
