Argentina did what no other team had been able to do so far against the USA, keep it close. The U.S. led 24-18 in the first quarter and by halftime had expanded its advantage to 54-39. Argentina outscored the U.S. 20-17 in the third to reduce the lead to 71-59 heading into the final 10 minutes, but the USA had an answer for every Argentina rally and for the fifth consecutive game broke the century mark in recording a win.
