BEIJING -- Carlos Delfino had 20 points and 10 rebounds as Argentina won the bronze medal in men's basketball with an 87-75 win against Lithuania.
Luis Scola added 16 points on Sunday and Andres Nocioni had 14 for Argentina, which won the gold medal in 2004. It's the first time the Argentines have won back-to-back Olympic medals.
Argentina played without Manu Ginobili, who injured his left ankle in the semifinals against the U.S. Wearing jeans and a polo shirt, the San Antonio Spurs standout watched from the bench.
Ramunas Siskauskas had 15 points to lead Lithuania (6-2).
