Just like in Beijing, Team USA had to work for gold against Spain. This time, it was even tighter, with a one-point differential at halftime and at the end of the third quarter. But a monster dunk and a three from LeBron James in the fourth quarter lifted the U.S. to a 107-100 victory, earning team U.S.A. its second straight gold and 14th overall in basketball. James joins Michael Jordan as the only player to win the regular NBA season MVP title, the NBA Finals, Finals MVP and Olympic gold in the same year.
