Kevin Durant was unstoppable once again and led Team USA to the semi-finals of the Olympic Tournament.

Durant went for a team-high 29 points, on 10/17 shooting, as Team USA rallied past Spain in the quarter-finals (81-95).

The Spaniards made a better start to the game and led by as many as 11 points in the contest (40-29).

The Americans came back, though, and went on a 9-34 run to take a 16-point lead (49-65).

Spain turned things around and cut the deficit to four (65-69).

Team USA stood tall, though, and made clutch shots in the fourth quater to seal the deal.

Ricky Rubio led all scorers with a career-high 38 points (13/20 shooting), but it was not enough for Spain.

Team USA will face Argentina or Australia in the semi-finals. Meanwhile, Slovenia also advanced to the semi-finals earlier today.
