Anthony scored 19 points, swiped three steals, snared four rebounds, and only had two turnovers in the 24 minutes he played. He was also instrumental in the 27-13 run the USA put on the Germans in the third period. The USA put together a very similar run against the Australians and such runs have been their calling card in these championships.
The United States will be facing off against Greece on Friday in the second of the two semi-finals. On the other side of the bracket the other two undefeated teams, Spain and Argentina, will face when the ball is thrown up in the air for the tip-off prior to the USA and Greece.
Other players of note were Chris Bosh with ten points, seven rebounds, and a block while going 4-5 from the field and LeBron James with 13 points, five rebounds, and four assists despite turning the ball over a team-high seven times.
