Second win and quarter finals pass
Argentina begun being accurate thanks to an impressive Laprovittola (first 7 Argentina's points) and a good Campazzo, chaining good runs and advantages until Spain cameback by Ricky Rubio's hand: 11 consecutive points including 3 three pointers. But the 'albiceleste' was back on track at the end of the first ten minutes (20-25) and had another good lead early in that second quarter: 20-27, min 11.

Exchange of baskets during the second quarter with Spain's second unit on court. Scariolo's men got some good advantages thanks to a 7-0 run first, and completing a 20-9 quarter run for a 40-34 scoreboard by halftime.

Coming off the locker room a three from Alex Abrines got Spain a max advantage, 43-34. But Argentina was not going to step down, specially again thanks to his playmakers: Laprovittola, who finished the game with 27 points, scored consistenly. Nevertheless, Spain's team work got them once again in command little by little for finishing the third quarter with an 8 point lead, 61-53.

The last 10 minutes were completely for Scariolo's men who got a max +16 advantage (72-56) thanks to a great Ricky, supported by all his team mates and specially by Sergio Llull on the scoring, with 10 points.

Second win for Spain in the Olympics group stage (81-71) and quarter finals pass. Spain faces Luka Doncic's Slovenia on Sunday.
