China and Australia, the two greatest teams in the Pacific, tip off today for some Group A Men’s Olympic Basketball competition. The game will begin at 1:15 P.M. EST and will air on the USA Network. If you’re stuck in class or at work during that time, don’t worry, though, because we’re about to teach you how to live stream the game online.
Australia will obviously be disappointed in the fact that they didn’t win their game against the USA, but it should help the Boomers grow in terms of realizing what they’re actually capable of. It wouldn’t be absurd to say that we could see Australia in the finals game against the USA. Bogut, Mills, Dellavadova, and Baynes are all firing at about 100% and we don’t expect that to change in today’s game against the Chinese.
Meanwhile, the Dragons will have a lot to deal with tonight. Obviously, Yi Jianlian is going to get his points, but how they deal with the physical, annoying Australian defense remains to be seen.
