Olympics 2012: USA Men's Basketball Team Takes Home Gold Medal

Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

It's another win for Team USA.

In one of the last Olympic events at the 2012 London Games, the U.S. men's basketball team has defeated Spain and cinched their second consecutive gold medal this Sunday.

Though sport stars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Tyson Chandler, Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Andre Iguodala, Kevin Love, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, and Deron Williams were highly-favorited to win, the game itself was almost too close to call during its last minutes.

Just how close?

Team USA defeated Spain with a final score of 107-100.

The match had celebrity spectators in the audience on the edge of the seat, including Arnold Schwarzenegger with his son Patrick, The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg, and David Beckham with kids Cruz and Romeo.

The Spaniards were awarded with silver medals while Russia took home the bronze.
