The best second-placed team at the end of the group stage gets to join the group winners in the seeded pot, and currently it’s Team USA who have the upper hand, thanks to their monster points difference.
Dame Lillard was the hero of the hour, slamming home seven three-pointers as Iran felt the full force of the Dream Team’s frustration, and they’ll be back on top of the world going into this crucial final group game.
Tomáš Satoranský and Ondřej Balvín are the big names in a big Czech Republic lineup, but what they boast in height they appear to lack in free throw shooting accuracy, their 7-for-16 against France a key factor in the 97-77 defeat.
It’s crunch time, so read on as we explain how to watch USA vs Czech Republic online and live stream Olympics basketball from anywhere today.

Who has a free Olympics basketball live stream?
One of the best things about the Olympics is that loads of the action, including the basketball, is being shown for free around the world. Those living in Australia have the benefit of Channel 7’s free-to-air coverage for example, which can be live streamed on 7Plus .
In the UK, plenty of Olympics action is being shown for free on the BBC and BBC iPlayer , though the broadcaster’s coverage varies, and it isn’t 100% clear which basketball games it will be showing.
How to watch Olympics basketball from outside your country
You should be able to find an Olympics basketball live stream (whether paid or free) in whatever country you happen to be in. But you may find that: a) your usual domestic coverage is geo-blocked when overseas; or b) that your place of work or college has blocked the ability to watch online where you are.
There’s a really easy way to solve those issues, thankfully. By downloading and installing a VPN , you can effectively trick your computer, phone or tablet into thinking that it’s somewhere completely different. That way you can enjoy your usual coverage without having to find an illegal stream.

How to watch USA vs Czech Republic: live stream Olympics basketball in the UK
The USA vs Czech Republic game tips off at the very comfortbale time of 1pm BST on Saturday afternoon, which is great news for basketball fans based in the UK.
In previous years, all the Olympic action you could handle would have been on the BBC, but coverage has been scaled back in 2021 and the schedules suggest it’s unlikely to be showing this game (although we’d suggest double checking on the online BBC iPlayer first).
Each one costs £6.99 per month or a bargain £29.99 for a whole year. And if you want to see just how comprehensive the coverage is (spoiler alert: very!) then there’s also a three-day free trial you can take advantage of.
If you're out of the UK for the 2020 Olympic Games, make sure you install a VPN so you can continue accessing UK streaming services from anywhere – whether that’s on the BBC, Discovery+ or Eurosport.
