Sunday, August 10, 2008 (AP) -- The U.S. Olympic basketball team treated President Bush and perhaps a billion more fans to a game to remember.

With LeBron James and Dwyane Wade soaring for dunks that thrilled the raucous crowd at Beijing's basketball arena, the United States pulled away for a 101-70 victory against host China on Sunday night.

Wade scored 19 points and James had 18 for the Americans in one of the most highly anticipated events of these Summer Games. Houston Rockets All-Star Yao Ming scored 13 points for China.
