LONDON (AP) -- It's Team USA vs. Argentina and Spain vs. Russia in the Olympic men's basketball semifinals on Friday.
The Americans roared into the semis by dismantling Argentina 119-86 behind a triple-double by LeBron James -- 11 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists. Kobe Bryant, held scoreless in the first half, picked it up big time in the second half and finished with 20. Bryant broke open a close game with six straight 3-pointers.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski's (shuh-SHEF'-skeez) club is on track for back-to-back gold medals. Next up is Argentina, a team the U.S. already has beaten by 29 points in this tournament. Then it's the Spain-Russia winner.
The Spaniards advanced with a 66-59 win over France, while the Russians qualified for the semis with an 83-74 win over Lithuania.
