VIDEO: Anthony Davis' big game in USA win over Slovenia

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis may be the de facto star of this USA Basketball team. Derrick Rose is the biggest name and guys like Stephen Curry, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving are certainly popular players in the NBA right now. However, Team USA needs their big men to be effective and they're going to rely on Davis as much as anybody as they march toward the gold medal in the FIBA World Cup.

In the last warm-up game before the World Cup begins on Saturday, Team USA dominated Slovenia, thanks to Davis' incredibly effective stints on the floor. He finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, four steals, and four blocks in the 101-71 victory. As you can see the in video, everything came from constantly moving and being active. He was crashing the boards, he was rotating to protect the rim, and he just outworked the Slovenian frontcourt.

It helps having a wingspan that never ends too.
