Team USA Vs. Spain Score Update: United States Leads, 59-58, At Halftime

The United States and Spain are playing incredibly efficient basketball through the first half of the gold medal match Sunday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Team USA leads, 59-58, with both teams shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor for the game.

The U.S. led 35-27 at the end of the first quarter, but Spain outscored the United States 31-24 in the second to draw the game to a near deadlock. The game has featured plenty of action at the foul line. The U.S. is 15-for-18 from the free throw line, while Spain went 19-for-21. While the United States has made a high percentage from the stripe, the constant fouls have disrupted their rhythm in transition somewhat.

Kevin Durant leads the United States with 17 points. Meanwhile, Juan Carlos Navarro has been spectacular for Spain, scoring 19 points with the help of 4-for-6 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc. Spain has gone 7-for-13 from distance as a team. The United States is 8-for-18.
