By the time the U.S. Men’s Senior National Team had finished toying with Nigeria, they set Olympic records for most points in a half and most points in a game in their 156-73 win, the only thing anyone knew for sure was that history had been made and that they’d probably never see anything like it again.
(Carmelo) Anthony set U.S. Olympic records for points (37), breaking Stephon Marbury‘s record of 31 (against Spain in 2004), 3-pointers made and attempted (10-for-12) and the U.S. team set Olympic records for points scored, field goals made (59), 3-pointers made and attempted (29-for-46) and their 41 assists tied a record.
They shot a staggering 71 percent from the floor, 81 percent (30-for-37) inside the 3-point line a wicked 63 percent from distance.
