Team USA-Lithuania Halftime Score: USA Leads, 55-51

Team USA holds a slim 55-51 halftime lead over Lithuania Saturday in men's basketball action at the 2012 London Olympics. The USA held a 33-25 lead after one quarter, but was outscored in the second period by Lithuania, 26-22. Team USA has won 12 straight games in Olympic men's basketball competition.

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony leads Team USA with 14 points. Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets has five points, one assist and two steals. Knicks center Tyson Chandler has a rebound and a blocked shot in just four minutes of action.

Luis Kleiza, a center for the Toronto Raptors, has 16 points for Lithuania to lead all scorers.

Team USA is just six-for-19 (32 percent) from three-point range in the game.

Thus far in the Olympics this is the stiffest challenge for the star-studded U.S. team. How they react should make for an interesting second half. SB Nation New York will have a recap for you when the game ends.
