It’s win or go home from now until the end of the Rio Olympic basketball tournament and four big games are coming up.
It all starts with Australia versus Lithuania. The Baltic side beat the Boomers in the Bronze Medal Games at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics in Sidney.
Then it’s a European classic with Spain versus France. The two sides know each other well and played some unforgettable games. Here are the details of a real rivarly.
USA will then play against Argentina. When the “Golden Generation” of Argentina won its gold Olympic medal in Athens back in 2004, they have beaten the US team that included a young Carmelo Anthony.
Last but not least Croatia will face Serbia. Not since 2010 have the teams met in a major tournament. Serbia won that encounter at the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Istanbul, 73-72.
