Team USA trailing Australia at halftime sparks KD jokes

UPDATE: Team USA pulled it out, 98-88.

So Team USA trailed Australia by five at halftime on Wednesday in Rio -- the first time they trailed at the half since 2004 -- and people reacted about how you'd expect on Twitter.

Starting with the Kevin Durant jokes.

More from FoxSports

In a few months we'll learn that Andrew Bogut texted Kevin Durant at halftime about joining Australia.
