The United States men's basketball team has claimed top seeding for the Olympic quarter-finals after beating Argentina 126-97 in a bad-tempered game in London.
Players were knocked down on both sides and had to be separated from each other at the end of the first half in an ultra-physical game that seemed to awaken the sleeping giant US team that squeaked by Lithuania in their previous game.
The Americans completed a 5-nil run through the preliminary phase of the tournament and will face Australia in the quarter-finals.
Kevin Durant led the Americans with 28 points, hitting 8-of-10 from three-point range, and LeBron James added 18.
Manu Ginobili scored 16 points as Argentina's high scorer.
Argentina slipped to third seed in Group A and will play Brazil in the quarters.
Group B top seed Russia will play Lithuania, while France meets Spain.
