USA Basketball wins Gold

 Congratulations to the USA Basketball team for wining gold after a rather close game against Spain. It seems like the re-run of last Olympic game versus Spain where they were less than 5 points. Althought in Beijin Spain was even up front by 2pts while this time US kept in control for the most part of the game.

It was interesting how LeBron and Kobe did start to take charge but I guess they really never settle since after having some nice plays some other players started coming up like Durant or CP3. Also Spaniard defense were fouling quite strong, preventing from any fast break or showtime to go on.

In the end the USA did felt it close to a match but not enough to get into more than yellow alarm. Foul problems and others put Spain at a big handicap and even if the Gasol brothers were dangerous on the inside, so was LeBron cleaning the boards and guarding Pau and Mark.
