Coming off one of its tightest games at the 2012 London Olympics, the USA men’s basketball team will try and end its preliminary-round play with an unblemished 5-0 record Monday (5:15 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network). To do so, Team USA will need to defeat Argentina at the Olympic Park Basketball Arena.
Over the last four days, the United States (4-0) has played two games on the opposite ends of the performance spectrum. Last Thursday, Team USA destroyed Nigeria, 156-73, setting records in the processes, but on Saturday the squad narrowly defeated Lithuania, 99-94.
Meanwhile, Argentina (4-1) is being led by Luis Scola (22.1 ppg) and Manu Ginobili (21.0). Just a few weeks ago, in a exhibition in Barcelona, Spainl, Aregentina lost to the United States, 86-80.
