Anthony Edwards scored 14 of his game-high 34 points in a decisive fourth quarter to complete a Team USA comeback for a 99-91 win against Germany in a World Cup exhibition Sunday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Germany built a 16-point third-quarter lead and led by as many as nine in the fourth quarter before the Americans went on an 18-0 run to take control.

Edwards, who went 11-of-21 from the field and 8-for-8 from the line, has emerged as Team USA’s top scoring option during the World Cup exhibition slate, averaging 18.8 points.

The Minnesota Timberwolves star’s heroics polished off a perfect 5-0 record for the United States in exhibition play before the squad starts its World Cup schedule against New Zealand on Aug. 26.
