1776 All Over Again: Durant, Team USA Crush Great Britain By 40.

Posted: Updated:

There were plenty of fireworks for Team USA against Great Britain on Thursday. It was one dunk after another in Manchester, England, on the way to a 118-78 victory for the USA.

The US team made a shakeup to the starting lineup before the game, inserting Kevin Durant for Carmelo Anthony. Durant scored 13 to help his fellow Americans annihilate the British by 40.

Durant's OKC Thunder teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden also chipped in, with 15 and nine points, respectively.

Chicago Bulls All-Star forward Luol Deng led the way for Great Britain with 25 points.

Before the game, the crowd didn't seem interested in the home team's strange set of pregame warm-up exercises, choosing instead to watch the Americans' practice dunks, oohing and aahing along the way.

With the win, Team USA is now 52-1 under head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

The Americans will face a tougher test soon, as they now head to Barcelona for tune-up games against Argentina and Spain.
