Team USA Hammers Argentina, Will Play Spain for Gold
The U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team routed Argentina Friday to punch their ticket into the Gold Medal game Sunday against Spain.
Kevin Durant scored 19 points, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony added 18 apiece, and the U.S. powered its way back to the title game by beating Argentina 109-83.
The U.S. beat Spain 118-107 four years ago in the Beijing final, pulling away after leading by just four with about 2 1/2 minutes left.
Manu Ginobili scored 18 points for Argentina, which needs to beat Russia on Sunday in the bronze-medal game to medal for the third straight Olympics.
While not as good as the ’98 ‘Dream-Team’ in my eye’s this squad is very talented and should have no problem winning the Gold.
