The Olympics is less than a month away and Team USA look like they're heading into the games in exceptional form.

Playing in their first warm-up game ahead of the tournament last night, coach Mike Krzyzewski's All-Star lineup were sensational as they dominated Argentina, coming away with a big 111-74 win.

The crowd in Las Vegas were treated to some top notch basketball, with the Golden State Warriors' newest star Kevin Durant leading the way for the Stars and Stripes with 23 points in the exhibition encounter.

If last night was anything to go by, the United States will be the very clear favorites to win the Gold Medal that they captured in 2012 and 2008. 

Even with Kobe Bryant now in retirement and LeBron James taking the summer off after a Championship win, Team USA look in no doubt of losing their 10-year unbeaten run.

Kevin Durant finished as the game's leading scorer after helping himself to 23 points, while Paul George added 18 of his own in his first game representing his country since breaking his leg in an exhibition game two years ago.

Carmelo Anthony was next on the scoring list 17 as he looks to win the third Olympic gold medal of his career.

''We're going to have fun and we're going to enjoy ourselves,'' Anthony said after the win. ''If it's not fun it's not worth it. We're going to enjoy ourselves but at the same time we're going to be focused in trying to get that gold medal.''

The USA look ready to repeat. The rest of the world should know who the biggest threat is entering the games this summer.
