Team USA led 46-37 at halftime and Australia outplayed them in the second half.  Portland Trailblazers Damian Lillard led the USA with 22 points and 4 rebounds.  Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant had 17 points and 4 rebounds and Washington Wizards Bradley Beal had 12 points and 3 rebounds.  The USA has lost both of their games now and they have a lot of improvements to make before the Olympics if they want to bring home the gold.  They are still without three players that are currently playing in the NBA Finals, they still should be able to win these games without them.
