LAS VEGAS (2007 FIBA Americas Championship) - On Wednesday night, LeBron James was, well, perfect.

James scored a game-high 26 points on 11-of-11 shooting from the field, which included four three-pointers as the USA rolled to a 118-79 victory over Uruguay.

Even more impressive, James did all of his damage in the first half.

Piling up the impressive statistics in just over 14 minutes of play, James picked up the scoring slack for Carmelo Anthony, who missed the game due to a bruised right heel.

The USA led 66-38 at the break and James' night was complete.

Amare Stoudemire would add 19 and Deron Williams 14 for the winners, who retained their perfect record in tournament play heading into their showdown with the other remaining undefeated team, Argentina, which defeated Brazil in overtime earlier in the day.

Esteban Batista's 20 points led Uruguay.

Notes: James tied USA Individual Game Records for Olympic Qualifying Games in the following categories: Most Field Goals Made (11, tying Tim Duncan and Gary Payton), Highest Field Goal Percentage (1.000, tying Vince Carter's six-for-six) and Highest Three-Point Field Goal Percentage (1.000, tying Ray Allen, Mike Bibby and Michael Jordan, all four-for-four ).
