Jimmy Butler a gold medalist as US men's basketball team tops Serbia

Jimmy Butler is a gold medalist.

The United States men's basketball team routed Serbia in Sunday's gold medal game, 96-66, winning the Olympic basketball tournament for the third consecutive time.

After a close first quarter, the U.S. sprinted away from Serbia with a 33-14 scoring edge in the second quarter and a 44-37 scoring advantage in the second half.

Kevin Durant was the team's leading scorer, dropping 30 points on 10-for-19 shooting with five made 3-pointers. DeMarcus Cousins and Klay Thompson also scored in double figures, with 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Butler scored just two points, going 1-for-3 from the field and adding five rebounds in 14 minutes played. Since active NBA players started playing for Team USA in 1992, Butler is the third active Bulls player to win gold for the U.S., joining Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

Carmelo Anthony became the first American man to ever win four Olympic medals in basketball and the first man to ever win three gold medals in basketball, earning his third gold medal Sunday after winning bronze in 2004, gold in 2008 and gold in 2012.

The U.S. has won 15 of the 19 gold medals handed out in men's basketball. After the team's stunning third-place finish during the Athens Games, U.S. head coach and Chicago native Mike Krzyzewski has led the Americans to three straight golds and has never lost a game in Olympic play.

US women's basketball team wins gold in Elena Delle Donne's first Olympics

First-time Olympian Elena Delle Donne got her first taste of gold as the United States women's basketball team won gold for the sixth straight Olympics.

The Americans defeated Spain, 101-72, in the gold-medal game Saturday in Rio, claiming gold for the eighth time in 11 Olympic women's basketball tournaments. The U.S. went undefeated in the tournament, averaging a stunning 102.1 points in eight victories.

Saturday, Diana Taurasi and Lindsay Whalen each dropped a team-high 17 points, Taurasi hitting five 3-pointers. Maya Moore had 14 points, and Breanna Stewart scored 11 points.

Delle Donne, the Chicago Sky star and reigning WNBA MVP, scored 10 points in 16 minutes.

Delle Donne was one of three players on the team — along with Brittney Griner and Stewart — playing in her first Olympics. The other nine players on the roster were at least all members of the 2012 gold medal-winning team in London.

Three players — Sue Bird, Tamika Catchings and Taurasi — matched American Olympic records by winning four gold medals and four consecutive gold medals. They are three of five American players to win four medals in women's basketball and three of seven female players overall. Only Teresa Edwards has more medals in women's basketball with five (four golds, one bronze). Only two men's basketball players have won four Olympic medals. Carmelo Anthony will become the third (and first American) regardless of the result of Sunday's men's gold-medal game between the U.S. and Serbia.

The Americans have won the gold medal in every women's Olympic tournament but one since 1984.
