The fellas on Team USA’s basketball team had a huge night yesterday in their Olympic game against Nigeria. Records were getting shattered left and right. And Carmelo Anthony–who is a 3 time Olympian–broke a big Olympic record. And his wife LaLa was there to cheer him on.Last night, Mr. Anthony shattered the record for the number of points in an Olympic game. He had 37, beating Stephon Marbury‘s record setting 31 back in ’04. He also knocked down 10 3-pointers himself.
The team also broke the Olympic record for most points in a game with about half a quarter still to play, and set U.S. records for total 3-pointers, field goals and field-goal percentage. Their score of 156-73 meant this team far surpassed the Dream Team’s record of total points scored in one game. The entire team was on fire…and their road to Gold is getting solid.
