LONDON, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- The United States won the Olympic gold medal Sunday in men's basketball.

The superstars from the NBA fought off Spain in the championship game 107-100 to win the Olympic title for the second straight Games and for the fifth time out of the last six.

Spain also lost to the Americans in the gold medal game four years ago.

The bronze medal went to Russia, which defeated Argentina 81-77 in the third-place game.
