The United States produced a ruthless display to defeat Australia 113-73 and reach the quarter-finals of the World Basketball Championship in Japan.
Anthony was the United States' top scorer
Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points, Joe Johnson 18 and Dwyane Wade 15 as the Americans set up a clash with Germany.
Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki scored 23 points as Germany held off a late Nigeria surge to win 78-77.
France also advanced to the last eight with a 68-62 victory over Angola and now face Greece, who beat China 95-64.
All 12 United States players scored in their comprehensive victory while the defence allowed Australia just two baskets and six points in the second period.
The Americans, leading by 27-23 after the first quarter, outscored Australia 18-1 to secure a 45-24 lead.
"That goes to show that when we really get focused and play defence, we can do some damage," said Anthony.
The Americans have passed 100 points five times in six matches so far in this year's championship as they seek to regain the title.
"They are definitely the most talented team in the tournament," said Australia's Andrew Bogut, who plays in America for Milwaukee Bucks.
