In the first game of the three-city, nine-game tour the USA All-Stars defeated Lithuania 90-65. The USA had a tough start, the days of travel and limited practice time contributed to the tough start. Even with rough play they managed a six point halftime lead. Lithuania came out strong to begin the second half cutting the lead to three on several occasions and were very aggressive.
The USA broke the game open with a run that started with seven minutes to go in the third quarter and ended the quarter with a 16 point lead. He run was highlighted by great defense by the Americans forcing numerous Lithuanian turnovers. Everyone contributed to the defensive performance.
