While Lithuania doesn't present a real threat to Team USA on the court, this game is still a must-watch because of two players on their roster.
At age 36, this will likely be the last time star Lithuanian point guard Sarunas Jasikevicius plays in the Olympics, and therefore potentially the last time American fans will have a real chance to see him.
He had a brief stint in the NBA, but that doesn't do justice to the type of international player he is. His international resumé is fantastic, including two All-Euroleague teams and a spot on the Euroleague's 2000's All-Decade team.
As one career ends, another begins, and this will be our first real look at future Toronto Raptor Jonas Valanciunas. Toronto took him No. 5 in the 2011 draft and the reviews have been excellent so far.
In 2008 Ricky Rubio wowed us by standing up to Chris Paul, Jason Kidd and Deron Williams. Valanciunas has a chance to do the same by competing with Tyson Chandler, Kevin Love and Anthony Davis.
Team USA will win this game, but our first look at Valanciunas and potentially our last at Jasikevicius still makes this an important game. Based on what we've heard over the past few years, expect Valanciunas to put up a big game against Team USA's small-ball lineup.
