US Crushes Iran in Basketball

The United States has crushed Iran-- at least in basketball. The American FIBA team destroyed the Islamic Republic's team, which surprisingly was not made up of midgets. So it looks like the great Persian pride has to take another seat. The score wound up being 88-51 and it sounds like the US team didn't even try very hard.

Midway through the second both Love and Durant would knock down long perimeter threes pushing Team USA to a 42 - 28 cushion entering halftime.  The efficient duo closed out the first half of play shooting an impressive 8 of 11 from the floor and 2 of 4 from three.  Durant continuing to provide Team USA with a little bit of everything and Love proving more and more with each passing game just how talented and skilled he is as a pro player.
Unfortunately for the Iranian National Team things did not get much easier in the second half as they were out - scored by Team USA 46 - 23 behind some stellar defense in the back court.  Team USA's length and athleticism proving to be quite an issue for Iran when attempting to run their half court style offense. 

For our Iranian readers:

Timetun kheyli bad hast. Morde hastand? Timetun ye basketball sharm ast!

تیم شما بد است. آیا آنها مرده؟ تیم بسکتبال شما شرم است

Uh oh. This won't do as part of the Muslim outreach. Perhaps President Obama can apologize for the victory.
