LONDON -- Coach Mike Krzyzewski had seen enough.
The U.S. was barely beating the Tunisia men's basketball team at halftime of a preliminary game at the London Olympics, so Krzyzewski kept his starters on the bench to start the third quarter.
That's right. Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Tyson Chandler were benched.
The U.S. walloped Tunisia, 110-63, with the Americans holding a 39-14 edge in scoring in the third quarter.
The reserves inherited a limp 46-33 lead and put the game out of hand with a 21-3 run to start the third quarter before Durant entered with 4:47 left in the quarter at the Olympic Park basketball arena.
It helps to have depth, even if you're the undeniable No. 1 team in the world.
Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love each had 16 points to lead the U.S. Anthony Davis added 12 points while Russell Westbrook had 11 points and James Harden 10.
