Former Arizona Wildcat Andre Iguodala had another quiet game in London, scoring two points and picking up a dime against Argentina in Team USA's 109-83 victory.

The Americans move to the gold medal game on Sunday against Spain after being led by Kevin Durant and LeBron James, who scored 19 and 18 points respectively. Iguodala didn't get on the board until the fourth quarter, when he found Kevin Love rolling to the bucket for a dunk to pick up an assist.

The new member of the Denver Nuggets -- Iguodala was shipped from the Philadelphia 76ers in the four-team Dwight Howard trade on Friday -- scored on a dunk via a Chris Paul assist.

USA fought all game to get a stronghold on the game, but 18 points by Manu Ginobili and 15 each from Luis Scola and Carlos Delfino kept the Argentinians in it. But eventually, scoring streaks by Kobe Bryant in the first quarter (11 points), James in the second (nine points), Durant in the third (12 points, all on three-pointers), and Carmelo Anthony in the fourth (12 points, also all on threes) were too much to overcome.
