After a tumultuous first-half scare, the U.S. men's basketball team soared to a 100-78 win over rival Spain to finish its pre-Olympic exhibition season with a 5-0 record.

Team USA had persistent foul trouble but still took control in the second half. Carmelo Anthony led the way with 27, 23 in the first half. LeBron James took control near the end of the game and racked up 25 points. 

What must be noted is that Marc Gasol didn’t play for Spain, but really the Americans still have more to offer.
