The United States are through to the final of the FIBA World Cup in Spain after blasting Lithuania 96-68 at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona on Thursday.



The Americans led only by eight points at the half before making their move in the third period behind the hot shooting of James Harden and Stephen Curry. Team USA outscored its opponents 33-14 in the third.

Kyrie Irving topscored with 18 points and issued four assists to lead the Americans to their second-straight final appearance in this competition having won the gold four years earlier in Turkey.

Harden and Klay Thompson finished with 16 points apiece while Curry tallied 13.

Jonas Valanciunas and Mindaugas Kuzminskas paced Lithuania with 15 points apiece and combined for 16 rebounds.

Team USA is aiming to become the first team to win back-to-back world titles since Serbia achieved the feat in 1998 and 2002 under the FR Yugoslavia name. The powerhouse squad is also determined to win its fourth-straight gold in a major FIBA world tournament having triumphed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, 2010 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics.

The Americans are now awaiting the winner of Friday's other semifinal game between France and Serbia in Madrid. Lithuania, meanwhile, will play the loser of the France-Serbia game in the battle for third place in the Spanish capital on Saturday.

The final will be held at the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid on Sunday.
