Kevin Durant's 30 led the USA, while Pau Gasol was sensational for Spain with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Spain kept it close throughout, with the U.S. finally pulling ahead by 11 late in the fourth quarter, only to let Spain close it back to 6 with about 13 seconds left before winning by 7.
