USA Beats Spain to Claim the Gold Medal

Sunday, 10 AM EST, the USA men’s basketball team faced Spain to reclaim their gold medal from the Bejing Olympics.  The gold was fought for hard by both sides.  Spain had a size advantage, led by the two Gasol brothers, Pau and Marc, who both measure up to about 7ft. However, the U.S. was more versatile on both the defensive and offensive side of the court.  Neither team had a commanding lead though out the game with Spain only trailing by one point at the end of the third quarter!

Kevin Durant led the scoring with 30 points throughout the game, while LeBron James scored a total of 19 points. He led the team through the stretch with a pivotal dunk and a 3 pointer to seal the victory.  With the win, LeBron James joined Michael Jordan as the only two players in history to win a gold medal in the Olympics, an NBA title, regular-season MVP, and NBA Finals MVP all in the same year.

After the win the team, there will still be a big debate whether the 1992 Dream Team put together 20 years ago would beat the 2012 team.  Now that they have both won gold and showed off their phenomenal talents, the answer will remain uncertain.
