Durant Moves Team USA Into Gold Medal Game

Posted: Updated:

Manu Ginobili has got be getting tired of seeing Kevin Durant. 

Durant scored a game-high 19 points Friday to lead Team USA past Ginobili and Argentina 109-83.   

Just one month ago, Durant's Thunder beat Ginobili's Spurs to earn a trip to the NBA Finals, and within the past month, Durant-led Team USA has now taken down Ginobili's Argentina squad three times, Friday's win earning a trip to the gold medal game.    

To be fair, Durant has a team full of NBA All-Stars to help his quest for the gold medal.  Among those teammates, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony scored 18 each, while Kobe Bryant scored 13 and Chris Paul added 10. 

Ginobili led Argentina with 18, but only had two of his teammates reach double-figure scoring. 

Durant's Thunder teammates also got in on the act for Team USA. Russell Westbrook scored seven before leaving with an apparent minor leg injury, and James Harden chipped in three. 

The Americans poured in 18 threes, and at times in the second half simply overwhelmed the Argentines. 

Team USA will face Spain in the gold medal match on Sunday morning.
