Team USA’s pre-Olympics exhibition tour wrapped up with a 110-66 defeat of Nigeria today in Houston, and DeMar DeRozan was intent giving American fans a taste of what spectators in Rio can expect over the next couple of weeks.

The Toronto Raptors shooting guard delivered a monster jam in the second quarter, solidifying his reputation as one of the NBA’s best finishers.

If that wasn’t enough, DeRozan produced this in the final minute of the warm-up clash.

The superstar-laden US team are unbackable favourites for the gold medal, while Nigeria are rated among the minnows of the 12-team competition, along with Australia, Venezuela and China.
