The U.S. escaped with an 87-76 win over Australia in the final Olympic exhibition game on Tuesday. Dwyane Wade led the team with 22 points, and LeBron James added 16.

The U.S. led by 15 points at halftime, but that dwindled because of awful three-point shooting (3-of-18) and free throw shooting (20-of-33). Australia was resting their best player, Andrew Bogut, and this was likely a wake-up call for Team USA, who had cruised through all previous exhibitions.

Close game, pretty good game overall. Even without Andrew Bogut, the Australians gave U.S. a pretty good game.
