On Wednesday, the United States advanced to the semifinal round of the 2012 Olympic Men's Basketball Tournament with a commanding win over Australia, 119-86.
Team USA managed to score at least 28 points in each quarter with Kobe Bryant recording a team-high 20 points in a little under 20 minutes of playing time. In addition, Lebron James added a triple-double with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 12 assists while playing a team-high 30:03.
Minnesota Timberwolves all-star forward Kevin Love registered 10 points, shooting 67% from the field and 50% from the free throw line. He also added 11 rebounds (eight of which were offensive boards).
The win sets up a rematch against Argentina on Friday and if it is anything like Monday's game, things are bound to get chippy, especially considering a berth to the gold medal game is on the line.
