Forward Kevin Durant scored 27 points, including a clutch three-pointer near the end of the game to help the U.S. national men’s basketball team hold off Argentina, 86-80, in another warm-up exhibition game in advance of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Team USA wore throwback jerseys against Argentina, honoring the 1992 Original Dream Team. But the 2012 team didn’t win by a lopsided score like the Dream Team beat its opponents back in 1992.

Instead, Argentina survived an early 19-3 run by Team USA and came back to keep the score tight throughout the rest of the game.

Argentina was led by San Antonio Spurs star guard Manu Ginobli with 23 points; fellow National Basketball Association (NBA) players forward Carlos Delfino of the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns forward Luis Scola added to Argentina’s attack with 15 and 14 points respectively.

Los Angeles Laker guard Kobe Bryant followed Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant with 18 points for USA while Miami Heat forward LeBron James added 15 points. Both Bryant and James said they’re glad Argentina put up a good fight.

“I love it. You hate to breeze through exhibition games and then you get into London, and then you start getting competitive,” James said. “So we have a very good team. It doesn’t matter about how many points you win by, you just want to play well and get better that night, and I feel like we got better tonight.”
