USA Males’s Basketball Crew Defeat Spain, Will Face Australia in Semifinals


Team USA cracked their ticket for the semi-finals with a 95-81 win against Spain on Tuesday to make it into the medal round. Kevin Durant continued his historic dominance over the tournament with 29 points.

The US men’s basketball team has now won three games in a row and will face Australia in the semi-finals on Thursday and have the chance to play for the gold medal on Saturday. A win over the weekend gave the Americans their fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal.

The Americans took over in the second half, despite the fact that Spaniard Ricky Rubio showed a masterful performance of 38 points. It was the highest score ever against Team USA in an international event.

Kevin Durant was one of five US players in the double-digit range with Jayson Tatum (13 points), Jrue Holiday (12), Damian Lillard (11) and Zach LaVine (10).
