    Default Group B, day 4: China vs Germany

    Germany, China and Greece all have 2 losses and 1 win in Group B. Dirk and the rest are deeply hurt with two consecutive losses. Yao and China lifted off previously against Angola. Tough game to predict.

    I like Germany but China and their outstanding fans deserve this one. I hope China wins, something for the people to cheer about.

    For the future development of Chinese basketball I'm kind of pulling for China. I think Germany is a slightly better team, but I think the homecourt might make a difference.

    China dominated Angola and gave all they got against Spain and almost pulled it off. I think they will be motivated and it's going to be a very interesting game. China to upset Germany by 4 points.

    wow very hard to pick who will win. I think Germany is a better team but I think china's home advantage will carry them through this one

    While China surprised me a lot, especially defensively, I think Germany has more opportunities to defend Yao than China has to defend Nowitzki. Kaman, Femerling and Jagla are 3 guys and 15 fouls to be all over Yao. On the other side Dirk will be back and eat Wang Zhizhi and especially Yi alive. Germany might be the slightly better team, as Dtown already said. I think the game might be decided by the supporting cast's outside shooting. I'm going out on a limb and say: 82-75 for Dirk and his boys.

    I predict an easy win by Germany. Dont want to underestimate the China team but this game will show their true level. If they beat the Germans they will prove their improvement but i dont see it happening.

    China look like favourites. Germany look tired after the long summer they've had, their leaders are not what they used to be.. we've seen this effect with the Croatians against Argentina and we could see it with Greeks as well hopefully I'm wrong, but that quallifying tournament never looked like much help to those quallified, imho..

    dirk and company is not playing good basketball rigth now in the olympics. china may have the same record as germany however, the homecourt advantage will always give an edge. It might be a close game though.

    It's not on TV in the US. But you can watch it online at nbcolympics.com

    All you have to do is wait until the game starts, then go to that website and click on basketball link on the left menu. Then it will say something like watch game live at the top of the basketball section and you can watch it live online for free.

    That's how I have been watching all the games I can't get on TV. The connection is good too, you can see everything quite well.

    I'm going with China in this game. They are better than people want to admit.
