Behind 28 points from tournament MVP Kevin Durant, Team USA defeated Turkey, 81-64, to capture the gold medal at the 2010 FIBA World Championship. 

Lamar Odom chipped in with a 15-point, 10-rebound double-double, as the United States captured its first gold medal at a World Championship since 1994. 

Semih Erden posted nine points and two rebounds for Turkey, but also made just one of five free throws, while committing three turnovers.
