USA nips Spain, 86-85

ESPN has the highlights.

Kevin Durant led the U.S. with 25 points and had two huge blocks in the waning seconds to secure the one-point exhibition win.

The U.S. went to zone after Derrick Rose’s go-ahead free throws and Durant did the rest with a pair of blocks on Ricky Rubio and Rudy Fernandez.

Even though Spain played without its best player, Pau Gasol, they’re still one of the top international teams in the world, so this is a good win for this young U.S. team.

It took some doing, but I finally found the box score. (Warning: It’s in Spanish.)
