The Olympic hosts, Japan, lost their third straight game on Sunday, this time to Argentina. While their National Team is no basketball juggernaut, Japan did expect to steal at least one game. "We just started, we're still a young team. Now we need to have more experiences like this, more games like these as a team. It sucks because we lost three times on our home court. We did everything we could ...

In a battle between two teams that had not won a game during the Olympics, Argentina (1-2) defeated Japan (0-3) 97-77 (26-16, 20-22, 19-15, 32-24). Two 3-pointers by Facundo Campazzo and one from Luis Scola helped Argentina gain an early 9-4 advantage. Japan cut the lead to one after a long-range shot by Makoto Hiejima (12-11), however, the South Americans went on a 12-1 run to gain a double-digit ...

In 26 minutes, Doncic scored 25 points (6/7 2PT, 2/8 3PT, 7/10 FT), and added 7 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and 33 ...

Ricky Rubio's layup helped Spain jump out to a quick 11-2 lead to start the game. However, Japan weathered the storm and cut their deficit to four to end the first quarter (18-14).

In 2016 in Brazil, the winners' podium included the USA, Serbia, and Spain. Five years later, some of those teams aren't even in the Olympics. Add pandemic-related issues, and the forecasting of this year's Tokyo medalists becomes even much murkier, let alone the entire arrangement of all 12 teams. Nonetheless, BasketNews experts rolled up their sleeves and produced power rankings for an upcoming ...
