The U.S. is now 54-4 in exhibition games since 1992.
Damian Lillard led the way for the U.S. with 22 points and four rebounds. Kevin Durant, who was 6 of 13 from the field but was cold most of the game, chipped in with 17 points while also adding four boards.
With Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, Matisse Thybulle, Aron Baynes, Dante Exum and Matthew Dellavedova, the Australians have more NBA talent than the Nigerian squad. Still, this is another huge upset for the Americans.
Mills was huge for Australia, particularly late, scoring 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as the U.S. just couldn't get enough stops to back up their own hot shooting from 3 down the stretch.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
