The United States defeated France 87-82 to win their fourth consecutive gold medal in the Olympics. 

Kevin Durant led Team USA with 29 points to win his third gold medal.

"This is one of those special journeys," Durant said. "When you're a part of a team that's evolving by the second, it's amazing to see. Each game we continued to grow. I'm grateful we all committed to it, we stuck with it and we finished it off."

France defeated the United States in the opening games of the preliminary round and kept the game within striking distance until the final seconds of the game.
