Well I decided to stay up and watch the U.S. play Spain for the gold metal even though the game didn't start until 2:30am. However I was not disappointed. The U.S. won a hard fought victory over the defending World Champions 118-107. Spain had the lead down to four 108-104 with just over two minutes left. Wade hit a critical three that put the U.S. up seven to finally give me a chance to take a breath.
The U.S. couldn't seem to find their defense which had carried them so far in these Olympics. However they were able to score enough to win and in the end a win is a win. Spain was called for a techicnal four late in the 4th which made the score a bigger margain than it would've been. The U.S. is back on top on the basketball world for the first time since 200o, but it won't be easy to stay there.
