Anthony Edwards drops 34 to lead Team USA past Germany

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- In a game that was terrific theater for a friendly and served as a terrific appetizer for the upcoming FIBA World Cup, Team USA completed a 5-0 exhibition record with a high-intensity 99-91 win over medal contender Germany on Sunday.

The U.S. trailed by as many as 16 points in the second half as Germany, which came in 4-1 in pre-World Cup play including a win over Canada, employed an effective game plan. But the Americans turned it into a chance to buckle down and show off their defensive mettle, holding Germany scoreless for six minutes in the fourth quarter while going on an 18-0 run.
