GAME WON 95-88 BY SPAIN, SPANISH PLAYERS CELEBRATE STORY: Marc Gasol netted 33 points and Ricky Rubio dished out 12 assists as Spain came from behind to beat Australia 95-88 in a double-overtime thriller and reach Sunday's (September 15) basketball World Cup final.

Contesting their first semi-final since winning the tournament in 2006, Spain led by a single point after the first quarter but suffered a shooting slump in the second that enabled the Australians to open up an eight-point lead.

With point guard Patty Mills, who notched a game-high 34 points, slashing to the basket and dictating the tempo, the Australians looked set to make it to the World Cup final for the first time.

Both teams struggled to shoot from distance but Australia's offensive rebounding and accuracy from close range put them in the driving seat for much of the second half.

Things were looking bad for Spain as Australia increased their lead to double digits in the third, but they upped the tempo on defence, finally getting to grips with Mills.

With Rubio threading passes all over the court, Gasol started to chip away at the lead, mixing up post-move scores and long-distance three-point bombs with trips to the free-throw line as Australia's game-plan started to unravel.

With both the United States and Serbia already eliminated, both sides sensed a glorious opportunity and a bruising encounter got even more physical as Spain battled back to force overtime.

The first extra period ended even but as Australia's shooting touch deserted them, Spain finally found their offensive rhythm to pull away in the second and go through to Sunday's final where they will face either Argentina or France.

WH Staffers Struggle To Justify Trump's Demand For 'Key Money' In TikTok Deal

The Trump administration was at a loss on Tuesday over the president's suggestion to shake down Microsoft in its proposed purchase of Chinese app TikTok. According to Gizmodo, the Trump administration has threatened to ban TikTok in the US, possibly by putting it on a Commerce Department blacklist. The threat is based on largely theoretical concerns that Beijing-based owner ByteDance could use it to spy on tens of millions of users.

'TikTok may be banned in US,' says President Donald Trump

The United States may ban Chinese-video sharing app TikTok, said President Donald Trump, amidst rising tensions between Beijing and Washington on a range of issues. "We are looking at TikTok, we may be banning TikTok. We may be doing some other things, we have a couple of options. We are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to TikTok," he said. Trump added that he would sign an executive order and take action as soon as Saturday. In July, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said that the Trump administration was considering a ban on TikTok application. The ban on access to TikTok was being considered over privacy concerns, Pompeo had added. Video-sharing application TikTok is owned by Beijing-based startup ByteDance. Recently, India had banned 59 Chinese mobile apps including TikTok, WeChat and Helo. Most of the apps banned in the June 29 order were red-flagged by intelligence agencies. The apps were banned with a view of threat to the nation's sovereignty and security.
