Spain stepped onto the pedestal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. They nipped Australia in the consolation final drama today. Sergio Rodriguez (191-PG-86) sank two free throws with five seconds left in regulation to propel the European side to the victory.
Spain jumped to an early lead. They grabbed a 23:17 lead after the opening quarter. The Boomers stepped on the gas in the second frame. Australia pulled within 2 points at the interval 38:40. The teams traded baskets throughout the third term. Spain sank 27 points to secure a 3-point lead at the final intermission. The teams went neck and neck throughout the final period. The lead changed hands for several times in the dying minutes. David Andersen (213-C-80) gave the Boomers a 86:85 lead with 35 seconds to go. Pau Gasol (213-F/C-80) sank two free throws at the other end to make it 87:86. Baynes responded with a jumper to regain the lead for Australia. But Sergio Rodriguez got fouled and calmly sank two free throws to ensure an 89:88 advantage for the Spanish side.

Nikola Mirotic (207-F/C-91) netted 14 points, while Sergio Rodriguez had 11 points in the win. Patrick Mills (183-PG-88, college: St.Mary's, CA) responded with 30 points for the Boomers. David Andersen finished with 15 points in the loss.
