Here it is!! Sorry I didn't get this up quicker, but we know these two teams pretty well by now. And the game's on NBC! The game's on NBC! (It's US-59,Spain-58 at halftime. You still have time! Go get your coffee and find a tv... ANY TV!)

Starters for the US. Lebron James, Tyson Chandler, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul. The US has won every game this year.

Starters for Spain: Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol, Juan-Carlos Navarro, Rudy Fernandez, Jose Calderon. Spain went 3-2 in pool play but beat Russia to make the Gold medal game.

This is apparently Coach K's last game as Olympic coach. He also coached in 2008. The U.S. is 10-0 against Spain in the Olympics. There's a lot more at the USA Olympic Basketball site if you're interested.
