Click to follow

Great Britain cruised to a second straight victory over Portugal in as many days as they continued their Olympic preparations in Sheffield yesterday. Following on from Saturday's 83-68 win, GB turned in a more rounded performance with big contributions off the bench as they built a lead early and kept pulling away.

Kyle Johnson had an impact off the bench, making his first seven field-goal attempts – including three big threes – as he helped push the lead to 81-57 midway through the final quarter. Johnson finished as the leading scorer with 21 points.
