2012 Olympics, USA vs. Australia Basketball: Start Time, TV Schedule, Online Stream And More

Team USA is a perfect 5-0 in Olympic play, and they'll look to continue their winning ways against Australia on Wednesday. The Aussies only have one NBA player on their roster in Patrick Mills, meaning the game could get out of hand early. This being said, the United States didn't exactly play well in their last game with Argentina and they've lacked focus at times.

As for the U.S., they will look to receive big contributions from players with ties to the Los Angeles area. Kobe Bryant has struggled to score up until this point, although he is admittedly saving himself for the later rounds. Chris Paul has done a very nice job as the starting point guard on both ends of the floor. Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook, who both played their college ball at UCLA, are key assets off the bench.

Here is a guide to where you can find all of the action on Wednesday.

Start Time: Tipoff is scheduled for 9:15 p.m. in London. That's 5:15 p.m. on the east coast, 2:15 in Los Angeles and the rest of the west coast.

TV Schedule: NBC Sports Network will televise the game, as will the Olympics Basketball Channel. Highlights of the game will be shown on NBC in primetime.

Online Stream: NBC will stream the game live through their official site.
