Brazil in their first Olympics since the Oscar Schmidt era, Australia has been in every one since 1972. Brazil won a friendly meeting 87-71 last week.

Didn't think we needed one since we already have the prediction contest...we can add them for future days.

Australia is always a tough team to battle, even for top-tier national teams. They gave us hell in 2008. Of course, the game was meaningless to us and the Australians were working their butts off to clinch a spot in the quarterfinals, but still, we lost by 31 points. When the game is on the line for Australia, you don't want to be battling them :D.

The test match results should tell us on this game's likely outcome. But I'm expecting Australia to make this one physical.

Seems like it's going to be an enjoyable game to watch from what i'm seeing so far...

End of First Quarter:

Australia 20 -19 Brazil

Heh, Brazil's inbounds play at the end of the half fooled the timekeeper.

Brazil is getting a lot of play from the US media, Chris Sheridan picked them to play the US for the gold. They have potential but that seems like a reach...

Unfortunately same results bro :( These free online sites have the same links and the one really good link that used to work is now mentioned as "not available due to copyright infringement" on these online sites.

No, on television here.

Shouldn't that have been an unsportsmanlike foul by Mills on Huertas? Just reached up from the ground and grabbed him.

Don't like the decision not to foul down 2 with 29 seconds left.

Wait, what channel? NBC 5? I hope it's not one of the ESPNs or TNTs, because I don't have those.

It was on NBC Sports Network as well as their special Olympic Basketball channel. The Argentina-Lithuania game later should be on both channels too, plus streaming on the NBC website.
