RIO DE JANEIRO -- There was a calm, relaxed atmosphere at the final practice for the United States womens basketball team.Maybe its because injured guard Sue Bird was able to participate. Or maybe because many of the players have been in this position before -- a win away from another Olympic title.I understand its a gold-medal game; weve approached it like any other game, said Bird, who has helped the U.S. win the past three golds at the Olympics. At the start of this entire month, every single practice and game we approached it like it was a gold-medal game. Todays no different.The Americans will play Spain on Saturday in search of a sixth consecutive gold. Spain is already guaranteed its first Olympic medal in womens basketball.It looks like the U.S. will have Bird back for the title game. She missed the semifinal win over France while she was recovering from a sprained right knee capsule. She said she felt much better Friday and it showed. After taking part in practice, Bird went through a hard workout to test the right knee.She stopped short of saying she definitely would play Saturday.I cant give you an answer for tomorrow, Bird said, smiling. I can be happy with the way things have been going. Long term is great, short term is getting better.Bird said the pain is down to about a one or two out of 10. But she isnt going to push it if she doesnt feel comfortable and has the utmost confidence in her teammates if she cant play.Im not going to be dumb about it. Our team isnt built around one person, its built around 12, she said. As they showed yesterday, it doesnt matter whos out there; we have a really good team. Im not going to do anything stupid.Coach Geno Auriemma, who has worked with Bird for four years at UConn and now eight with USA Basketball, said the decision is up to Bird whether she plays.Shell wake up tomorrow morning and tell us how she feels and well go with that, he said.The U.S. dominated Spain in the preliminary round, winning by 40 points. The Americans also beat Spain in the 2014 world championship title game. Still, the U.S. isnt taking anything for granted.They are really, really good, Diana Taurasi said. Its going to be a hard-fought battle and they have been playing really well since we beat them.The test for Spain will be to do what no team has been able to do in Rio: put together a full game against the U.S. France trailed by four at the half on Thursday and still lost by 19.The Americans have won 48 consecutive games, a streak that started in 1996. Theyve won the seven games in Rio by an average of nearly 40 points and are putting up 102.3 points a contest -- just a hair behind the record set by the 96 squad.Saturdays contest will be the last Olympic game for Tamika Catchings, who is retiring at the end of the WNBA season next month. Bird and Diana Taurasi have also hinted this will probably be their Olympic finale as well.Thats the elephant in the room that no one is talking about, Taurasi said. Were really focused on the game at hand and not what lies ahead after that. Marquinhos Paris Saint-Germain Jersey .
