Granger Plays, Gordon Helps Lead Team USA To Win Over Greece

New, comments

Bring on the world.

Team USA left Athens yesterday primed and ready for the FIBA World Championships after easily dispatching with host Greece, 87-59.

There were no DNP-CDs for Team USA which means Danny Granger played, logging about 15 minutes and adding 3 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals to the cause. Local legend Eric Gordon continued carving out a more significant role on the team by seizing every minute of playing time he's afforded. Yesterday EJ pumped in 18 points in 21 minutes off the bench, using that pure shooting stroke to knock down 4 of 7 three-pointers.

Gordon has never had a problem scoring points and he's tapped into that ability to move from an expected cut earlier in the process to the point now where he is the key "microwave" offensive punch off the bench heading in the the WC tournament.

After the jump, more links with Team USA stories and highlights and  Paul George having some fun dunking.
