Kevin Durant scored 19 points and LeBron James added 18 to lead the US team of NBA stars over Argentina 109-83 on Friday and into the Olympic men's basketball gold medal final against Spain.

The Americans booked a rematch of the 2008 Olympic final and reached the gold medal game for the 15th time in 17 attempts, having missed out in 1988 and 2004 and skipped the 1980 Moscow Olympics in a boycott.

The US men, who also had 18 points from Carmelo Anthony, seek their 14th gold medal against a Spanish side also filled with NBA standouts, one that battled the US NBA icons to the end before falling 118-107 in the 2008 Beijing final.
