The 2016 Rio Olympics is already underway and all eyes are on the amazing athletes competing in this year?s summer games. Basketball is undoubtedly one of the most popular games during the Olympics and certainly this year will not be any different. If you are a huge basketball fan, you should definitely not miss the USA vs China Live Stream to enjoy some great hoops action.
The USA Men?s Basketball Team has usually been composed of countless superstars but this time the roster is somewhat lacking. Reigning MVP Steph Curry is sitting out the Olympics to recover from various injuries. LeBron James, probably the best player in the entire world, likewise declined to join opting to rest up after a grueling NBA season.
While the Team USA is missing some huge superstars, they are still the big favorites to win it all in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Their first test against China is going to be something countless basketball junkies will enjoy.
During the Team USA exhibition games, USA and China already faced off against one another and it was a huge blowout. The new villain of the NBA Kevin Durant led the team by scoring the first 10 points of the game, which incidentally was KD?s first game at his new home court of Oracle Arena. Carmelo Anthony also scored 20 points in just 15 minutes of play to lead team USA in their 106-57 victory against China.
An exhibition game though is not the same as an actual Olympic game so Team USA must not underestimate a Chinese team being led by former NBA player Yi Jianlian. It will be interesting to see whether China has learned from the blowout loss they suffered at the hands of Team USA and whether they can find a solution to try and stop KD, Melo and the rest of the squad.
Be sure to check out Team USA vs China basketball live stream this August 6th at 6:00 PM ET as it airs direct from Barra Carioca Arena in Rio de Janeiro. CBSSports cites that you can catch the USA vs China live streaming online by visiting NBCOlympics.com.
Will Team USA dominate once more or will China surprise the world and score a giant upset against the tournament favorites? If you are a die-hard USA basketball fan, this game is definitely something that you should not miss.
