Lakers 95 - Nets 90 (final) It wasn't easy by the Lakers overcame 18 missed free throws to beat the Brooklyn Nets, 95-90. In their first official game under Coach Mike D'Antoni, the Lakers managed to get stops on multiple sequences to turn a six-point deficit into a five-point victory. Dwight Howard made 19 trips to the line, making just seven as the Nets began to foul him intentionally a la hack-a-Shaq. The Lakers shot just 51.4% from the stripe, helping keep Brooklyn in the game.

Below are five things to watch when Team USA plays Argentina in the London Olympics semifinals Friday at 1 p.m. 1. Expect a chippy affair. To get ready for this one, Team USA forward Carmelo Anthony might want to wear a cup after Argentina guard Facundo Campazzo punched him in the groin on a three-point attempt when the two teams met in preliminary round play earlier this week.

Below are five things to take from Team USA's 119-86 win Wednesday over Australia in the quarterfinals at  the 2012 London Olympics. Team USA plays Argentina in a semifinal match on Friday. 1. LeBron James had a solid all-around game. He has carried Team USA in nearly every facet of the game so far in these Olympics. So it's not surprising that James recorded a triple double (11 points on three-of-seven shooting, 14 rebounds and 12 assists) against Australia. It's also not surprising that James eclipsed Charles Barkley as Team USA's third-best all-time scorer (236 points)
