NEW YORK (AP) - Stephen Curry scored 17 points and the U.S. national team pulled away in the second half to beat Puerto Rico 112-86 on Friday night in its final home exhibition game before the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Derrick Rose came off the bench for the Americans, who used 12 of their 16 players and are expected to cut at least a couple of them on Saturday before departing for Spain. They will play a final exhibition game there against Slovenia and will need to have their final 12-man roster set the day before their Aug. 30 opener against Finland.

All-Star Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond, Gordon Hayward and DeMar DeRozan didn't play.

James Harden added 13 points for the Americans.
