Team USA Basketball begins their gold medal defense on Sunday morning, when they face Tony Parker and the French in an opening round Group A battle. The game can be seen live on NBC Sports Network or streamed on NBCOlympics.com.
LeBron James, Kevin Durant and their USA teammates will be heavy favorites against the French, despite the presence of several NBA players to go along with Parker on Team France. Boris Diaw, Ronny Turiaf, Nicolas Batum and Kevin Seraphin will certainly be familiar with their American counterparts, but the roster talent differential is simply too great for the French to overcome.
Here is what you need to know for Sunday's game:
Game Day/Time: Sunday, July 29, 9:30 a.m. EST
Location: Olympic Park Basketball Arena, London, England
