Team USA Basketball Takes Care Of Spain In Last Pre-Olympic Exhibition

The United States dispatched Spain in their final tune-up before the Olympic Games. The USA nor Spain seemed intent on revealing their hands too much after the first quarter, and the talent of the American squad eventually wore down the Spanish. The United States got nice contributions from Carmelo Anthony (who finished with 27 points) and LeBron James (who put up 25 points and eight assists). Kevin Durant added 13 points and eight assists.

The two USMNT members with Arizona ties had relatively low-key games. James Harden put up seven points and one assist, while Andre Iguodala had a rebound and an assist while scoring zero points. Pau Gasol had 19 points and five rebounds to lead Spain, with Serge Ibaka chipping in with 16 points and four boards, Juan Carlos Navarro with 11 and Jose Calderon dishing eight assists.

The United States now gets ready for Olympic play, as they must face France on Sunday in London to start off group play action.
