LeBron leads U.S. past Brazil with 30 points

WASHINGTON - Tough start for the Americans. The Olympic basketball team couldn’t get a stop, the president couldn’t get a kiss.

Eventually, things worked out for both of them.

LeBron James scored 30 points and the U.S. rallied from an early 10-point deficit to beat Brazil 80-69 on Monday night in its final exhibition game on home soil.

“They came out really counterpunching and taking advantage of our aggressiveness on defense, and they’re well-coached,” U.S. guard Kobe Bryant said.

Obama needed a second chance in the fourth quarter before First Lady Michelle Obama would grant him a kiss on the “Kiss Cam” segment, the crowd booing when she wouldn’t allow him a smooch in the second quarter.
