Durant, Gay shine in intrasquad exhibition

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Kevin Durant had 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead the way to a 100-81 win in a Team USA intrasquad exhibition game on Saturday night.

Rudy Gay scored a game-high 27 points for the losing Blue team.

Durant continued to make his case for a spot on the national team roster. The Oklahoma City Thunder forward has a chance to be a part of next year's team at the world championships in Turkey. It is possible there will be two or three open spots on the roster.

Greg Oden, the first pick in the 2007 draft, scored seven points and added eight rebounds to cap his first experience with the national team. The Portland Trail Blazers center had missed the past three national team summer camps with injuries.

New Jersey Nets center Brook Lopez scored 18 points and added five rebounds for the Blue team.

The game at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus capped a minicamp.

U.S. coach Mike Krzyzewski and USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo watched the game from the sideline. Toronto Raptors coach Jay Triano oversaw the minicamp.
