The U.S. Men's National Team takes on Nigeria Monday night in their final exhibition game before the Rio Olympics. You'll forgive the Nigerians if they cower at the sight of Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, who in 2012 set an Olympic record with 37 points, including 10-12 from beyond the arc, in a 156-73 USA masterpiece. It took Melo a mere 14:29 to get his buckets, a pace that equates to 102 points over 40 minutes.

He was good, is what I'm sayin':

The game starts at 8 p.m. ET on NBA TV and will be streamed online through USA Basketball on Facebook. G7ory, g7ory ha77e7ujah!
