Olympic Basketball men's semifinals are all set today, with a rematch of USA vs Argentina in the group stage match. Argentina keep at bay in the first half but never recover from the 3rd quarter 3-pointer barrage from the Americans absorbing 126-97 loss.

The expected rematch set Friday August 10 at 21:00 start time in Basketball Arena in London. Check this page later for Argentina vs USA live score highlights.

So far only Lithunia has busted the Americans that close that almost rattle the defending 2008 Olympics gold medalist. Is team USA really beatable in this tournament? Yes, unless Argentinian plays solid defense all through out the game. Argentina needs to contest every single shot the Americans take, especially three point shooters.

Disrupting the US offense really throws out of the rythm in their game by not allowing easy baskets in the paint and contest them in transition. But the diference is Argentinian bench is too weak that separates them from the Americans.

Argentina big men Leonardo Gutierrez and Federico Kammerichs should do more on rebounding the ball and banging inside. Along side Ginobili will be fellow NBA players Carlos Delfino (Milwaukee Bucks) and Luis Scola (Phoenix Suns), plus former NBA player Andres Nocioni will lead Argentina.

In the other Olympic Basketball semifinals result, Spain hold off Raussia 67-59. Pau Gasol leads the Spanish team with 16 points while Canderon and Fernandez has 14 and 11 respectively. Spain will most likely play the United States for the Gold.
