CARACAS, Venezuela -- Cory Joseph scored 28 points to lead Canada to a 91-62 victory over Brazil on Sunday at the FIBA Americas Championship basketball tournament.

The San Antonio Spurs guard added nine rebounds and four assists to help Canada improve to 2-1.

"He's got a great mix going right now of finding other guys and contributing in points by himself," said head coach Jay Triano.

Brazil started strong and led 22-19 after one quarter. Canada scored 25 points in the second quarter for a 44-34 halftime lead before pulling away in the third quarter.

Forward Andrew Nicholson of the Orlando Magic chipped in with 13 points. Guilherme Giovannoni led Brazil with 11 points and eight rebounds.

Canada will get a day off Monday before playing Uruguay on Tuesday.

"Three games in three days, I was really pleased with the energy level that we had," Triano said. "I think we matched if not had a better energy level than Brazil, who had a day off yesterday."

Miami Heat centre Joel Anthony and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson are the other NBA players on the Canadian team.

Forwards Anthony Bennett, the first overall pick in the 2013 draft, and Kelly Olynyk are not available due to injury. Andrew Wiggins, expected to go first overall in 2014, is missing the tournament to prepare for his first year at Kansas.

The FIBA Americas Championship is a qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.
