U.S. men’s basketball gains another redemption gold

This gritty, plucky band of brothers staged a furious rally against international basketball powerhouse Spain, earning a 107-100 victory and a gold medal for the United States. Kevin Durant rocketed from a virtual unknown playing hoops in the obscure outpost of Oklahoma City to a household name, leading the U.S. team with 30 points and nine rebounds.
