Great Britain v USA - Basketball

by Manchester Entertainment

Great Britain's men's basketball team suffered a 118-78 defeat against a star-studded USA side in Manchester.
GB contained the USA in the early stages of their London 2012 warm-up.
However, a 10-point unanswered stretch from the visitors at the end of the first quarter put them in control and they led 55-37 at half-time.
NBA stars Deron Williams and Carmelo Anthony picked up 19 points each on the way to their comfortable win, with Luol Deng GB's highest scorer with 25.
It was always going to be a tough challenge for GB in a game widely-billed as the biggest match in their history. WinkBall reporters were on hand to get the views of the fans before and after the game. Do you have a view? Leave a wink online now.
