The blockbuster international basketball action continues on ESPN this weekend, with a huge double header that sees the Australian Boomers and Opals tackle the USA.
Fresh from an impressive victory over the Dream Team on Tuesday, the Boomers will hope to back it up when they clash again on Saturday July 17.
Saturday July 17 will be a huge morning for Australian fans, with the second Boomers-Dream Team clash preceded by the Australian Opals taking on Team USA.
Kicking off the blockbuster double header at 4.30am AEST on ESPN, the Opals will begin finalising preparations for the Tokyo Olympics against their formidable rivals.
Both strong contenders for medals in Tokyo, the Opals will hope to steal a page from the Boomers playbook and show they are more than capable of making their own push for Olympic gold.
The double header continues at 8am AEST when the Boomers hit the court for another showdown with the USA.
Australia have been in stunning form in Las Vegas and have yet to taste defeat in the USA Basketball Exhibition Tournament.
Wins over Argentina, USA and Nigeria have the nation buzzing ahead of the Tokyo games, and a second straight win over the Dream Team, and just their third in history, would be the ideal Olympic build.
The USA are still smarting from the back-to-back losses that opened the tournament, and want to recapture some confidence.
ESPN will also bring further action from the USA Basketball Exhibition tournament on Monday.
Monday will see another live double header, featuring the USA.
The USA Women’s team meet Nigeria at 7.30am AEST, before the Dream Team hit the court at 11am AEST against Spain, both on ESPN.
