The Serbia and Australia Men’s Basketball teams will tip off on Monday afternoon at 1:15 PM EST, with both teams looking for their second win in Group A preliminary competition. Australia is coming off a solid victory over France, whereas Serbia defeated a much weaker Venezuela. A win in Monday afternoon’s game would pretty much guarantee a spot in the next round of Olympic Men’s Basketball, so expect both teams to be going 100%. You can watch the game on TV on MSNBC, or on your mobile device/computer via the instructions below.
The Australian Boomers surprised many with the way they handled talented France, and perhaps the biggest surprise was how good the injured Andrew Bogut looked. It feels like most of Australia’s buckets came from backdoor cuts against a French team that seemed to be ball watching, so we’ll see how Serbia adjusts to that.
Meanwhile, the “Serbian Orlovi” (Eagles) did what they had to do against Venezuela. Led by guard Bogdan Bogdanovic who scored 19 points, they walloped an underwhelming Venezuela.
Expect to see Australia handle Serbia, but crazier things have happened in international basketball. Check out how you can watch the game below.
