As the team began in its exhibition games it routed the Dominican Republic by 54 points in a  113-59 victory with some of the closest games coming down to a three point victory. On Sunday August 12th Kobe ,Carmelo,Durant, and Lebron helped Team USA accomplish the goal that was hand which was to win it’s second straight Olympic title.
