WHO: Slovenia vs Japan
WHAT: Olympic Basketball
WHERE: Tokyo, Japan
WHEN: 11:40 p.m. CST
HOW: NBCOlympics.com or NBC sports app.
THE STORY: Luka Doncic and Slovenia will attempt to build on their dominance from the win over Argentina. Japan will try to rebound from their opening loss to Spain. If Japan loses they will have one game remaining but no realistic chance of advancing past the group stage. This should lead the hosts to come out with a real sense of urgency which Slovenia will need to match.
The Slovenian team is a legitimate threat to medal, especially with some early struggles from perennial powers, USA and Argentina. Unfortunately, the game is not being broadcast on television in America that I can find. It can be watched on NBCOlympics.com or the NBC sports app. Find a way to watch the game and cheer on our Slovenian treasure as he attempts to continue his Olympic success.
