The USA men’s 5-on-5 Olympic basketball team (now 1 – 1) got back in the win column and then some with a 120 – 66 demolition of Iran (0 – 2) in the preliminary round of play for Group A in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics early Wednesday morning on the East Coast of the United States.

The US was led by Portland Trail Blazer star Damian Lillard (21 points, 5 assists), Phoenix Suns standout Devin Booker (16 points, 4 rebounds), Boston Celtics All-Star Jayson Tatum (14 points, 4 boards), and the San Antonio Spurs’ Keldon Johnson (13 points, 8 assists).

If the 12:40 a.m. ET tip was too early (or late) for you to watch, don’t worry — we have all the highlights from the big win for your viewing pleasure in the clip embedded below, courtesy of YouTubers Core Highlights TV.

Watch it to see all of the best moments from the US victory over Iran, hopefully a sign of things to come in medal play.
