While the United States vs. Lithuania may be the most anticipated game of Saturday's slate of Olympic basketball, the game between Russia and Spain is a close second.
Through three games of Olympic play, Spain and Russia are tied atop the Group B standings with six points each. Both teams have won their first three games. Although they are undefeated thus far, both Spain and Russia are coming off of narrow one-point wins in their last games. Russia knocked off Brazil 75-74 while Spain held on against Great Britain 79-78.
The game between Spain and Russia is set to begin at 6:15 a.m. ET and will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network. The game will also be available via a live online stream at NBCOlympics.com.
