Win or go home.

Olympics: Basketball-Men's Team-Preliminary Round FRA vs USA Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

It’s serious now. The USA will take on Manu Ginobili and the old heads from Argentina. It was the Argentinians who denied America a chance to play for gold in Carmelo Anthony’s first Games, way back in 2004. Will they knock them out of the tournament before the medal round?

This is your game thread. Tip-off is 5:45 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN for short).
