The gold medal matchup between the United States and Spain has been everything everyone expected, and more.

The Americans lead by just one point, 59-58 at halftime. Kevin Durant has 17 points, but Spain hasn't flinched at the powerful U.S. team.

Juan Carlos Navarro has been fearless, going right at the Americans and racking up 19 points. Spain is winning the board battle 21-19 but will need to overcome foul trouble to stay in it. Marc Gasol has four fouls, while Sergio Rodriguez and Felipe Reyes each have three.

If the Americans continue to struggle, here's an idea. Why not call on the Terminator? Arnold Schwarzenegger is in the arena cheering them on — and received a loud ovation when he was shown on the scoreboard.
