Team USA basketball team was able to pull out a stunning victory over Spain.
The U.S. men’s basketball team defended its title by fighting off another huge challenge from Spain, pulling away in the final minutes for a 107-100 victory and its second straight Olympic championship. The game was a very hard fought battle and I don’t think Team USA thought it would be such an uphill battle. There was much discussion about the lack of defense played by Team USA. I think they were overly confident in their skills and doubted almost every team they played. USA Basketball will have to assert a dominance that the team that featured Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley once displayed. I think for now we can put a can on which team was better b/c we all know the answer to that.
Kevin Durant scored 30 points and James had 19 on a day he joined Michael Jordan as the only players to win the NBA title, regular-season MVP, NBA Finals MVP and Olympic gold in the same year.
And we finished with that GOLD!!!
