Kevin Durant shines in first game at new home arena

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Cheered all night long by his basketball-crazed new fan base, Kevin Durant knocked down a 3-pointer on the Americans' first touch and slammed home a dunk the very next time down the floor.

Then, another pretty one-handed jam just a few minutes after that, with Durant helping the U.S. Olympic team beat China last night in Oakland, 107-57, for a third straight dominant win in its three exhibition games.

Booed in Los Angeles a couple days back, Durant received a far more friendly reception in the Bay Area he will now call home. He emerged for pregame warmups to huge roars.

Mike Krzyzewski's latest star-studded roster sure looks strong just over a week before the Rio Games begin.
