U.S. Men's Basketball Squeaks by Spain to Win Gold
In a tight race, the U.S. defeated Spain today (August 12) to win the gold medal for Men's Basketball.
Kevin Durant scored 30 points for the team, topping LeBron James' 19 and Kobe Bryant's 17. The game echoed the 2008 Beijing gold medal game in which the U.S. pulled away in the fourth quarter from Spain to win 118-107.
After bragging that their team was better than the 1992 Dream Team, the U.S. just squeaked by Spain to win 107-100. The win does help to detract from the 2004 bronze medal disaster in Athens.
Unfortunately, U.S. team coach Mike Krzyzewski has announced that he'll be retiring as the national team coach following this Olympics, after taking the team to gold in 2008 and now 2012.
