And wouldn't you know it, but Tatum and Brown provided one of the highlights of the game, as the former found his Celtics teammate for a nifty alley-oop in the fourth quarter.

Brown's dunk was part of a strong Team USA run that helped the visitors pull away for a double-digit win.

Both Brown and Tatum finished with 11 points in the game, while Walker dazzled with a game-high 23 points on 9-of-22 shooting.
