As you can probably guess, men’s basketball at the Olympic Games is incredibly intense. This weekend, starting today, hosts the preliminaries between all the participating countries. The teams are divided into two groups of six countries, and play every team in their group once. They earn two points for a victory, and one point for a loss. The top four scoring teams per group then qualify for the quarter-finals.
Team USA falls into Group A, competing not only against France but also Australia, China, Serbia, and Venezuela. In the initial standings, USA is in first place. The team players are Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Paul George, DeMar DeRozan, Harrison Barnes, Kyle Lowry, DeMarcus Cousins, and DeAndre Jordan. We know you can do it, boys! The USA vs. France game is sure to be a big one, so you don’t want to miss it. Here’s how you can watch:
