Basketball: Team USA stops Spain to win gold again


LONDON – The U.S. men’s basketball team are Olympic champions again.

Four years after knocking off Spain in the gold medal game in Beijing, the Americans repeated the feat in London, winning 107-100 in a hard-fought affair.

Kevin Durant scored 30 points in the victory and LeBron James had 19 – including a huge three-pointer with less than three minutes to play that set Team USA on the path to gold.

Pau Gasol led Spain with 24 points.
