Team USA Basketball: USA Vs. Spain Preview, Game Time, TV

The USA Men's Basketball team will end is exhibition tour Tuesday (4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2), when they face Spain in Barcelona for a tune-up match for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. This will be the the last exhibition contest for both USA and Spain, who both will enter the games as FIBA's No. 1 and No. 2 ranked teams, respectively.

Team USA will be looking to end its exhibition schedule with a perfect 5-0 record, as well as improving its FIBA record over Spain to 6-1. The last time these two countries met was at the '08 Olympic Games, where USA downed Spain 118-107 in the Gold Medal Game.

Entering the Olympics, Spain is suppose to be USA's No. 1 foe as they feature a handful of NBAers -- center Pau Gasol (Los Angeles Lakers), guard José Calderón (Toronto Raptors), Víctor Claver (Portland Trailblazers), Marc Gasol (Memphis Grizzles) and Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder).

However, Spain will have a hard time matching up with a squad that features Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and center Tyson Chandler coming off the bench.
