USA Handles Argentina, To Play Spain For Gold Medal
“Anything less than this would have been unsatisfying for us,” Anthony said after the win. “We believe that we could get here and we’re here now. We got one game left.”
Argentina kept it close for awhile, cutting their deficit to as little as 4 in the 3rd quarter. However, they simply couldn’t keep up with Team USA, who ran away with the lead in the second half.
“Anybody on this team can get going at any point. That’s the dangerous part of this team,” Anthony said. “You never know who’s going to get it going. Tonight, Kobe (Bryant) started it. Durant got it going and I got hot out there, too.”
Now the United States will face the same opponent in the Gold medal game they faced in Beijing. Team USA defeated Spain for the Olympic Gold 4 years ago by the score of 118-107.
