Team USA Vs. Lithuania, 2012 Olympics Basketball: Schedule And TV Coverage

Fresh off their dominating record-breaking win against Nigeria on Thursday, Team USA will try to stay undefeated in Group A basketball play on Saturday. USA was unconscious on Thursday, blowing away the Olympic scoring record of 138 points set by Brazil. Coach K's club drilled 29 three-pointers to put up an astounding 156 points in the blowout. Carmelo Anthony set the individual Team USA scoring mark, breaking Stephon Marbury's 31 points by hitting 10 of 12 threes for 37 points.

They'll face a slightly tougher test on Saturday when they match up against the Lithuanians. The Americans are still 34.5 point favorites, however, riding the momentum of their performance on Thursday. The Lithuanians have some NBA-level talent but the Americans should still overwhelm them.

Tip is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. ET and the game will be broadcast live on the dedicated Olympics basketball channel as well as NBC Sports Network.
