The 5 Best Olympic Events to Watch Today (Day 16: Sunday, August 12th)

Men's Basketball: USA vs Spain-Finals

Team(s)/Athlete(s) of Interest: USA

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Why You Should Watch: Team USA meets Spain in the finals for the second Olympics in a row. Yeah, the nations are the same, but the two teams are vastly different from Beijing with Dwight Howard and Dwyane Wade being out for the Americans, and Ricky Rubio out for the Spaniards. The Americans will look to successfully defend their gold medal, but this isn't '08. With Tyson Chandler as their only inside defensive presence, Spain will look to take advantage of the Americans' lack of size inside. With a nimbler and more experienced Marc Gasol and brother Pau up to his usual tricks, the Americans are going to have to defend by committee and push the tempo if they want to pull this one out.
