Team USA Vs. Australia Final Score: America Picks Up 119-86 Win

The United States are now just two wins away from another gold medal in men's basketball, after taking down Australia 119-86 on Wednesday afternoon. The U.S. men's team jumped out to 14-point lead at halftime, but Australia still hung in tough.

They couldn't hang in the second half, thanks in part to 20 points from Kobe Bryant and a triple-double from LeBron James. James ended the night with 11 points, 12 assists, and 14 rebounds. Carmelo Anthony continued his torrent of points in the Olympics, adding another 17 points on the evening.

Patrick Mills added 26 points for the Australian team, but it wasn't near enough to keep the game competitive late.

Team USA will now move on to face off against Argentina in a rematch.
