|Chris Paul, G
4-9 FG | 2-4 3PT | 1-2 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 11 PTS
It may not show up in his stat line, but Paul is the primary reason Team USA have gold medals around their necks right now. He took over the game in the fourth quarter, completely controlling the pace with his aggressiveness on both ends. Vintage CP3.
|Kobe Bryant, G
5-10 FG | 3-7 3PT | 4-5 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 17 PTS
Kobe paced Team USA early, matching J.C. Navarro shot-for-shot in the first. Though he wasn't as much of a factor down the stretch, he took it upon himself to guard Spain's hottest player and did a great job limiting his looks. This was a good way to go out.
|Kevin Durant, F
8-18 FG | 5-13 3PT | 9-10 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 30 PTS
With LeBron on the bench with four fouls, Durant did what he's done so many times for OKC — take over in crunch time. This may not have been his most efficient performance, but he hit so many huge shots that it didn't matter. And he's only 23...
|LeBron James, F
8-13 FG | 1-3 3PT | 2-2 FT | 7 REB | 4 AST | 19 PTS
Dagger. That's all you really have to say about LeBron in this one. He was his usual excellent self and all that, but he also got the signature moment — a tough three with Marc Gasol right in his face to essentially seal the deal for the Americans. Legendary.
|Tyson Chandler, C
1-2 FG | 0-0 3PT | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 2 PTS
This wasn't Chandler's tournament. Coach K decided he liked playing small, and Tyson simply didn't give him enough versatility to pull major minutes. He was able to hold his own when he got a chance, but the new era of international basketball doesn't suit him.
