Only one more team stands between Team USA and a shot in the gold medal game in men's basketball and it's a team that the Americans have already defeated. On Monday, Team USA started relatively slow against Argentina but ran on all cylinders in the third quarter before cruising to a 126-97 victory.
With a win Team USA would advance to a gold medal game against the winner of the matchup between Spain and Russia tipping off at noon ET, but with a loss Team USA would vie for bronze against the loser of that game.
Friday's game will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network at 3:30 p.m. ET. A live online stream of the game is also available from NBCOlympics.com.
