LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kevin Durant had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead the U.S. Olympic basketball team to a 113-59 victory over the Dominican Republic on Thursday night in an exhibition game.

The MVP of the world basketball championship two years ago, Durant came off the bench to shoot 9 of 11 from the field, making 5 of 6 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Andre Iguodala added 18 points and Carmelo Anthony had 13 for the Americans, who were without All-Star forward Blake Griffin. He returned to Los Angeles for evaluation Thursday after experiencing discomfort following practice Wednesday in his left knee, the same one that bothered him in the playoffs.

Alternate Anthony Davis took his place and was in uniform against his college coach, John Calipari of national champion Kentucky.

Al Horford of the Atlanta Hawks shot 1 of 12 and the Dominicans’ other NBA player, Francisco Garcia, missed all three attempts.
