Description
The Australian basketball team will be sky-high on confidence heading into their toughest match of the tournament against the gold medal favourites after crushing the Argentines 97-59 in their quarter-final. The Aussies led 60-48 heading into the fourth, and then outscored Argentina 37-11 in the final frame. NBA free-agent guard Patty Mills led the way for Australia with 18 points. Philadelphia 76ers wing Matisse Thybulle scored 12 and grabbed five rebounds. Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant poured in 29 points to lead team USA into the medal rounds with a quarterfinal win 95-81 over Spain. Spain actually led by 10 in the second quarter, before the US went on what became a 36-10 run over the next nine minutes to take control for good. The USA basketball team is the most successful team in international competition, winning medals in all eighteen Olympic tournaments it has entered, including fifteen golds. Australia has participated in the most Olympic men's basketball tournaments without winning a medal. The Aussies have played in the semifinals on four other occasions, including 2016, when they lost to Spain.
