Watch Online FIBA Americas Semifinals – Argentina vs Mexico, Puerto Rico vs. Dominican Republic: Live Streaming, Preview, Scores & Results

Puerto Rico, Argentina, Dominican Republic and Mexico all punched their tickets to Spain for the FIBA World Cup of Basketball. But the FIBA Americas Championship doesn't end there. With the semifinal round all set Wednesday night in Caracas, it's about time to determine the best basketball team in this tourney. Guys, buckle up because this is going to be a wild ride.
Argentina secured their place in next year's FIBA World Cup in unconventional way. Playing perhaps their sloppiest basketball in over a decade, Luis Scola and a bunch of Argentine League players willed their way to qualification by beating a talented but still inexperienced team in Canada in their final game of the second round.
With their spot in Spain already booked, the question now is can Argentina win another title without Manu Ginobili, Carlos Delfino and Pablo Priogini? Possibly, but they have first to deal with the up-and-coming Mexico in the semis. Led by NBA player Gustavo Ayon, Mexico is the tournament's biggest surprise with Brazil, Canada and host nation Venezuela going flat.
Puerto Rico vs. Dominican Republic (8:00 a.m Perth/Manila Time)
Puerto Rico opened up the tournament in a big way by sweeping their first round assignments. However, the Puerto Ricans a stiffer challenge in the second round with Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Argentina also coming in from another group.
Aside from their loss to Mexico in a non-bearing match (at least for them), Puerto Rico suffered defeat at the hands of the Dominican Republic. Houston Rockets guard Francisco Guard has been a solid leader for this ball club in the absence of big man Al Horford.
With the kind of play they are showing as of late, Dominican Republic are very much ready to inflict serious damage again on Puerto Rico's title hope.
