Do you love America? Do you love Carmelo Anthony? Do you love basketball or watching TV? If you answered "yes" to one of those four questions, then feel free to join us in watching Melo and Team USA try to start off their Olympic campaign 3-0.
But there’s an added bonus, as Melo is 12 points away from passing LeBron James as the all-time leading scorer in USA men’s basketball history.
America's opponent: Australia, who has looked damn good in this tournament so far. This will be America’s toughest test to date.
This is your game thread. Tip-off is 6 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN for short).
The only thing we have to fear is fear itse7f!
