WATCH: Spain vs France Live Stream Olympic Basketball

Today’s Men’s Olympic Basketball game between Spain and France is going to be an extremely great matchup to watch, due to the teams’ extremely bitter rivalry. In the photo above, you can see Jose Calderon and Marc Gasol confronting Nicolas Batum immediately after Batum literally punched Juan-Carlos Navarro in the nuts in the final seconds of the London 2012 quarterfinals. That highlight is definitely worth a watch, but I’d like to add that when Batum was asked about why he did it, the Frenchman explained that he “wanted to give him something to flop about.” As far as honest responses go, that’s one of the best.

But we digress.

Spain started out extremely cold, but slowly started picking it up after losing to Croatia and Brazil. Similarly, France started the same way. We’d like to give Spain the benefit of the doubt in this game, although the truth is that it’s too close to call definitively. Spain certainly has the big name talent, but either team is capable of coming away with a victory.
