Kevin Durant scored 29 points and rescued the Americans again Tuesday as they overcame a 10-point deficit to beat Spain 95-81 and advance to the semifinals of the Olympic men’s basketball tournament, in which they will play either Australia or Argentina on Thursday. After making just 4 of 17 3-pointers in the first half, Team USA made 9 of 15 in the second.  Jayson Tatum contributed 13 points and Draymond Green had nine points, five assists and three steals in the win.   For Spain, Ricky Rubio finished with 38 points on 13-of-20 shooting, the most points ever against Team USA in the Olympics or any other major event. It broke Dirk Nowitzki’s mark of 34 points for Germany against the U.S. in the 2002 world championships.
