Former Bull Pau Gasol had another big game with 23 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks.

Spain, which improved to 2-2 in the Olympics, raced out to a 26-11 lead after a quarter and built on the lead in every quarter.

The Spanish will finish against Argentina, which boasts a 3-1 record after beating host Brazil in double overtime thanks to a 37-point night from former Bull Andres Nocioni. If Spain, which lost its first two games by a combined three points, loses they will need some help in the form of a Brazil loss to winless Nigeria to advance to the quarterfinals.
