Jason Kidd Scores! U.S. Leads by 23 After 3

It took him more than 45 minutes, but Jason Kidd scored his first points - and took his first field goal attempt - of the Olympics when he made a fastbreak layup the U.S. a 24-point lead over Spain early in the third period. G-O-A-L!!!!!!
Kidd didn't take another shot in the period, but he didn't need to either, as the U.S. entered the final period leading 86-63. Carmelo Anthony leads four Americans in double figures with 16 points.
Spain guard Rudy Fernandez injured his tailbone early in the period, landing on his backside after Kidd stripped the ball from him while Fernandez was in the air.
