Spain's Box-And-One Defense Is Working

In response to Kevin Durant's scoring binge, Spain switched to a box-and-one defense, sticking Sergio Llull on Kevin Durant. That's effectively taken Durant out of this game for the last two minutes. Meanwhile, Kobe Bryant has tried to take over, with mixed results.

It remains to be seen if Spain sticks with this strategy now that LeBron James is back in the game after sitting a while with four fouls.
