In order to capture the gold medal, the U.S. men’s basketball team will have to take down the only opponent that has managed to hand the Americans a loss in this year’s Olympic tournament.

Team USA will face France on Friday in a rematch of the opening game of the group-play stage. Evan Fournier led the way for France in that contest, scoring 28 points on 11-of-22 shooting in an 83-76 victory.

After that disappointing performance, Team USA ran through Iran, the Czech Republic, Spain and Australia to reach the finals. The Americans are now one win away from a fourth straight gold medal, but they know this will be their toughest test to date.  

Here is a complete guide to watching the USA vs. France men’s basketball game at the 2021 Olympics, including the start time, a full TV schedule and live-streaming information.
