Team USA finished up pool play 5-0 after cruising past Tunisia 92-57on Thursday at the FIBA World Championships.

Eric Gordon continued his stellar play in the international competition with an efficient 21 points on 7-10 field goals off the bench, to lead all scorers. Danny Granger played 16 minutes off the bench but couldn't find his shooting stroke, finishing with 5 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Team USA has a few days off before getting back to work on Labor Day for their first game in the elimination round against Angola. Struggling heavyweights Spain and Greece did not end up on Team USA's side of the bracket and will end up facing each other in the first round. But regardless of the opponent, the U.S. squad controls their destiny. Defense is their calling card and despite the flawed roster which has been analyzed to death, they remain the favorite to win it all. Should be some fun games to watch next week.
