The first ever loss for Team USA since basketball started Olympic play in 1936 came in highly controversial fashion. With the Americans trailing 49-48 against the USSR, Doug Collins stole a pass and was fouled, making both shots to give the U.S. a 50-49 lead with three seconds left. Then began a bizarre series of circumstances where the Soviets had not one, not two but three chances to score the winning basket -- which they did. To this day, the American team has yet to unanimously vote to accept their silver medals.
