Team USA Men's Basketball Vs. Argentina Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Online Streaming

Team USA men's basketball wraps up pool play on Monday with a game against Argentina. A win would give LeBron James and his team the No. 1 seed in Group A of the men's basketball tournament at the 2012 Summer Olympics and a quarterfinal match against Australia on Wednesday. First, they have to get by Argentina.

Lithuania gave Team USA their closest scare yet, coming within five points of toppling the favorite on Saturday. The win kept them at 5-0.

Argentina has a 4-1 record. Luis Scola and Manu Ginobili lead the team, averaging more than 21 points per game. Argentina and the United State faced off recently in exhibition play in Barcelona, with the US winning 86-80.

Monday's game will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network at 5:30 p.m. Eastern. A live online stream of the game is available from NBCOlympics.com.
