Kevin Durant dropped 30 points to become the all-time single-Olympics scoring champ, while LeBron James scored several crucial points near the end of the game and passed Michael Jordan to move into second on the all-time Olympics scoring list for Americans.
It was the second consecutive gold medal and fourth in the past five Olympics for Team USA, which infamously won only a bronze in 2004 following a disastrous loss to Puerto Rico.
Unsurprisingly, the team took to Twitter to revel in its golden success — and the players were joined by fellow athletes and celebrities in their jubilation. Check out some of their tweets below.
