New York (AFP) - The United States hammered the Dominican Republic 105-62 in a basketball World Cup tune-up at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Wednesday's lopsided contest gave US coach Mike Krzyzewski a prime opportunity to tinker with his star-studded lineup.
Rose had missed most of the last NBA season after suffering a torn meniscus in his right knee on November 22. He had previously been sidelined by a torn ligament in his left knee.
The United States were quick out of the gate, taking a 53-21 halftime lead. Harden scored 10 points while Curry delivered three assists and two three-pointers.
Off the bench, Klay Thompson also contributed 10 points with two three-pointers.
DeMarcus Cousins, nursing a bruised knee, also saw limited action but looked back to full mobility after taking a knock in practice last Thursday.
The United States was playing without stars Kevin Durant, who withdrew from the team recently saying he was too mentally drained for a World Cup campaign, and Paul George, who suffered a horrific broken leg in a training game in Las Vegas.
The FIBA World Cup -- previously known as the World Championships -- will be held August 30-September 14 in Spain.
