Team USA Vs. Argentina Basketball: Americans Move To 4-0 In Friendly Competition

Playing in Barcelona, Spain, the very place where the Dream Team took the world by storm 20 years ago, in 1992, the 2012 U.S. Men's National Team wore throwback uniforms, similar to the ones worn by Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.

But that's where the similarities ended as Team USA squeaked by with a 86-80 exhibition victory over Argentina on Saturday.

Kevin Durant led the American squad with 27 points to go go along with 18 points from Kobe Bryant and 15 from LeBron James and despite those contributions, Team USA still managed to squander a 20 point lead and let the Argentinians back in the game. The San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili scored 23 points while Carlos Delfino added 15 and Luis Scola, 14 points.
