China & Team USA’s hoops schedule

Just in case you’ve been looking for it, here’s the men’s Chinese team’s schedule (as AirChina23 posted in the comments yesterday) for the next few days:

8/12 4:45A EST China vs Spain
8/14 2:30A EST China vs Angola
8/16 8:00A EST China vs Germany
8/18 2:30A EST China vs Greece

And here’s the USA’s men’s schedule:

8/12 8:00A EST USA vs Angola
8/14 8:00A EST USA vs Greece
8/16 10:15A EST USA vs Spain
8/18 8:00A EST USA vs Germany

You can watch these games live in the U.S. on this page on NBCOlympics.com. It requires the installation of a Microsoft Silverlight plugin to watch the games. Silverlight is Microsoft’s version of an Adobe Flash player.

What’s cool is that you can also watch a replay of the games online by clicking on the “Rewind” option.

    Actually, I guess the online broadcasting schedule is subjected to change. Today’s Spain game was played on MSNBC, and I couldn’t find it on NBCOlympics.com. I guess it was either a glitch or a last-minute change.

    BTW, that game was heartbreaking! China had a few key possessions down the stretch and couldn’t convert. Yao played fair and he knows it. But once again, Yi Jianlian put up a quiet game and he needs to get his mind back from Mars.

    It’s amazing after all these years, Wang Zhizhi has more offensive repertoire than Yi and he can put the ball on the floor like Dirk. Only if he had learned how to play tough and box out! This is like a what-could-have-been for him. Props to him for hitting those big shots though. Sun Yue was pretty much mute, and I really want the coach to have him running the point instead of Liu Wei, even though Liu played fairly well today.

    I think with today’s game, China’s confidence is boosted even more. I don’t think they’ll beat Germany but they have a great chance against Greece. And they need to pounce Angola as hard as they can to make up some point differences, they are at -41 right now.
