08:09 AM ET 08.03 | Records came crashing down Thursday in Team USA's rout of Nigeria, which included 156 points, an 83-point win and 29 three-pointers. Carmelo Anthony had 37 points, and did so playing in a mere 14 minutes. ... Nevertheless, a question in the postgame news conference about the U.S. running up the score stiffened Krzyzewski, inspiring him to respond with marked defiance. "We didn't play LeBron [James] and Kobe [Bryant] in the second half, and with Carmelo shooting like that, we benched him," Krzyzewski said. "We didn't take any fast breaks in the fourth quarter, and we played all zone. You have to take a shot every 24 seconds, and the shots we took happened to be hit."
