Kemba Walker was unstoppable (23 points) and helped Team USA defeat Australia in the first preparation game between the two teams (102-86).

Aside from the guard of the Boston Celtics, five more players scored in double figures for the winners.

Patty Mills and Chris Goulding were the best players of the losing squad, posting 19 points apiece.

The game, which fans had the opportunity to watch live on TalkBasket, was close until the end of the first half (22-20, 44-43).

Yet, the Americans took over in the third quarter and went on a 32-18 run to earn a 15-point lead and never look back (76-61). Australia never recovered after that and Team USA cruised to the victory.

The two teams will face each other again on Saturday (24/08).
