London Olympics 2012: Team USA's Kevin Love Scores 16 Points In 110-63 Blowout Of Tunisia

Although he provided a few minutes of sheer horror for Minnesota Timberwolves fans after leaving the game with a right knee injury, Kevin Love bounced back to lead his Team USA men's basketball squad past Tunisia on Tuesday night in blowout fashion, 110-63.

Love went down in the second half after falling awkwardly on a rebound, and briefly sent Twitter into a state of flux about his potentially serious injury. But after a huge block by teammate Andre Iguodala forced the entire Team USA bench, including an exuberant Love, to its feet in complete chaos, it became clear that the T-Wolves star would be just fine.

In addition to finishing 3-for-4 shooting inside the arc, Love managed to go 3-for-5 from three-point range as well on Tuesday to further showcase his all-around game. Now 2-0 and currently the only team in Group A with four total points, the U.S. will face Nigeria in the final basketball game of the evening scheduled from London on Thursday.
