The U.S. men's basketball team looks to stay undefeated in the 2012 Olympics as they take on Lithuania.
Team USA is expected to win big, once again. They are 35-point favorites and have won by an average margin of 52.3 points per contest.
Carmelo Anthony has been one of the stars for Team USA this year.
The game is scheduled to tip off at 9:30 a.m. ET on Saturday. It will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network. You can also watch a free live stream online by clicking here.
The Americans are coming off one of the best performances in Olympic basketball history. They beat Nigeria 156-73 in their last contest to put them at 3-0 in the games.
The 156 points is the most ever scored by a team in the history of the Games. Carmelo Anthony also entered the record books, scoring a team-high 37 points. He did so by shooting 10-12 from three-point range.
Kevin Durant and Kevin Love have been two of the team's most consistent performers. They're the only two Americans who have scored in double-digits in every game of the tournament.
Lithuania doesn't promise to be much a challenge for the U.S., either. They have just two NBA players on the roster in Jonas Valanciunas and Linas Kleiza. Both play for the Toronto Raptors. They are 1-2 in group play.
Martynas Pocius also stars for Lithuania. He played for USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski at Duke, graduating in 2009.
The two countries have had some memorable match ups in the past. Lithuania's Sarunas Jasikevicius missed a three-pointer in the semifinals of the 2000 Olympics that would have given the underdogs the victory. In 2004, they finally pulled off the upset by beating Team USA in the preliminary round.
The U.S. finishes up group play on Monday when they face Argentina.
Prediction: Team USA has shown no signs of stuggling, thus far. Don't expect another close game between these two nations. It won't be as much of a blowout as Thusday, but the U.S. will win comfortably.
Predicted Score: USA 111, Lithuania 72
