Cool, thanks. Do we know when our next game is?

I'm pretty certain Team USA will be playing in the later semifinal on Thursday that starts at 9:00PM JST. That'll be Thursday, 8AM EST stateside.
I guess not. Can we try to get an accurate day and time for the Gold medal game and post it here, please?
Yeah, sorry about that. I was trying to guess the tipoff while the Australia/Argentina game was still being played. They've been waiting until all games are finished to announce the official game times, but I tried a bit of research combining various sources and took a guess they'd be playing the later semifinal.

The Gold medal game is already set, though. Saturday 11:30AM JST, which is Friday 10:30PM EST.

I guess it's already over. Just set up a recording on my local NBC where they're showing it during a 5 hour block starting at 10 am tomorrow.
Shit, my bad. I knew I was wrong shortly after my post, but I assumed everyone would've figured out the tipoff time. NBC sure does like to make things difficult for everyone stateside by not putting these games on live television.

Yea I get having the fans at games but what I enjoyed in the Bubble was being able to hear the coaches and players talking.

Like "FF" said our boy Book got going in the 3rd and was obviously cool to watch but even better with all the audio. In those last couple minutes you can hear Durant especially, "attack him Book" , "go at him Book" and the jumper to end the quarter the bench was all like "yeaaa Book !"

As we've been saying for years, the players know boy legit

Quite the game between France n Slovenia
Impressed by Slovenia and without Googling I would guess that their squad has to be young so they will be around for a while.

Let's see if France can beat Team USA without the extra help from the officials that they benefited from in the first meeting.

I really just want to see someone cram one on Gobert's head. I have an irrational dislike for that guy.

That was an ugly game, but I guess I should’ve seen that coming with France’s offensive game plan.

Only looking at the box score would indicate crying ass Rudy’s missed free throws were the difference in the game.

At least Booker didn't have to lose the Finals and the Gold Medal!

France played well. The refs tried hard to give them the victory. It wasn’t enough. Without Durant I don’t know how well USA would have done.

Scrappy Gold medal game but that's not much different to w Game 7
Most of the time with the stakes that high it's a battle of attrition and who makes the least mistakes/more timely plays

Bronze medal game was some great TV. Patty just unbelievable man, quite the game by Thybulle also. Luka battled but when he gets to complaining it isn't the best look

Who woulda thunk that Book's defense would be a key to our gold medal olympic success?!

JaVale isn't half bad at this vlogging stuff. I'm sure he'll have something posted from the medal ceremony.
