Team GB Beat Portugal Twice in London 2012 Olympic Games Warm-Ups July 15, 2012 21:51

With only two weeks to go until the London 2012 Olympics, Team GB have been making sure that they're ready to rock 'n' roll, by going head to head with other countries who are also preparing for the Games. 
Today saw Team GB play their second warm-up game in a row against Portugal, and on both occasions, Team GB have come away with the win. Playing in Sheffield, GB won 86-66 with Kyle Johnson leading all scorers with 21 points. 
Team GB face perhaps the ultimate basketball team in their next warm-up game; Team USA, so any opportunity to play and develop as a team has been important for Great Britain's basketball stars. 
After a disastrous run of warm-up games in Houston in the last month, before the final squad of 12 was officially announced, things weren't looking 100% for Team GB, but these two wins against Portugal have given the finalised team a boost and is hopefully a sign of what's to come. 
NBA star, Luol Deng had 14 points and 5 assists for team GB against Portugal in the second game, Eric Boateng added 11 points in the 4th quarter, along with 5 rebounds and Pops Mensah-Bonsu chipped in with 9 points and 6 rebounds.
